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.

Upgrading to the newest version of JHipster

JHipster provides an upgrade sub-generator ( to help you upgrade an application with a new JHipster version of it. It is quite useful as it automates a lot of manual steps for you, and the only thing you need to do is resolve merge conflicts if there are any after the upgrade is complete. Let's upgrade our application, shall we?

  1. In your Terminal, execute the jhipster upgrade command. The upgrade process will start if there is a new version of JHipster available; otherwise the process will exit.

Once the process starts, you will see a detailed console log of what is going on. As you can see, this sub-generator uses the global JHipster version instead of the local one, unlike other sub-generators:
