Full Stack Development with JHipster,

By: Deepu K Sasidharan, Sendil Kumar Nellaiyapen

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. By the end of the book, you will be able to leverage the power of the best tools available to build modern web applications.

Starting the production database with Docker

JHipster creates a Dockerfile for the application and provides docker-compose files for all the technologies we choose, such as the database, search engine, Jenkins, and so on, under src/main/docker:

├── app.yml - Main compose file for the application
├── Dockerfile - The Dockerfile for the application
├── hazelcast-management-center.yml - Compose file hazelcast management center
├── jenkins.yml - Compose file for Jenkins
├── mysql.yml - Compose file for the database that we choose.
└── sonar.yml - COmpose file for SonarQube.

Let's see how we can start our production database using Docker from the compose file provided under src/main/docker/mysql.yml. You will need to use a Terminal for the following instructions:

  1. Run docker --version and docker-compose --version to ensure these are installed.
  2. Run docker ps to list the running containers. If you are not already running any containers, you should see an empty list.
  3. Let's start the DB by running docker...
