Overview of this book

JHipster is a development platform to generate, develop, and deploy Spring Boot and Angular/React applications and Spring microservices. It provides you with a variety of tools that will help you quickly build modern web applications. This book will be your guide to building full stack applications with Spring and Angular using the JHipster tool set. You will begin by understanding what JHipster is and the various tools and technologies associated with it. You will learn the essentials of a full stack developer before getting hands-on and building a monolithic web application with JHipster. From here you will learn the JHipster Domain Language with entity modeling and entity creation using JDL and JDL studio. Moving on, you will be introduced to client side technologies such as Angular and Bootstrap and will delve into technologies such as Spring Security, Spring MVC, and Spring Data. You will learn to build and package apps for production with various deployment options such as Heroku and more. During the course of the book, you will be introduced to microservice server-side technologies and how to break your monolithic application with a database of your choice. Next, the book takes you through cloud deployment with microservices on Docker and Kubernetes. Going forward, you will learn to build your client side with React and master JHipster best practices.

Chapter 7. Going into Production

Our application is almost ready and it's time to go into production. Since this is the age of cloud computing, we will be deploying our application to a cloud provider—Heroku, to be specific. Before we go on and deploy intended for Linux, but it is possible to use it with Mac and Windows using tools such as our application into production, we need to make sure our application is production ready in our local environment. It would also be beneficial to make ourselves familiar with technologies and tools that will be useful at this stage.

In this chapter, we will learn about the following:

  • An introduction to Docker
  • Starting the production database with Docker
  • An introduction to Spring profiles
  • Packaging the application for local deployment
  • Upgrading to the newest version of JHipster
  • An introduction to the deployment options supported by JHipster
  • Production deployment to Heroku cloud
