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.

An introduction to deployment options supported by JHipster

Now that we have verified our production builds by deploying it locally, let's see how we can take it to actual production by using a cloud service. JHipster supports most of the cloud platforms out of the box, and provides special sub-generator commands for the popular ones such as Heroku, Cloudfoundry, and AWS.

JHipster also supports platforms such as Openshift, Google Cloud (using Kubernetes), and Rancher, but let's see them in upcoming chapters as they are more geared towards microservices. In theory, though, you could use them for Monolith deployments as well.


Heroku ( is the cloud platform from Salesforce. It lets you deploy, manage, and monitor your applications on the cloud. Heroku has a focus on Applications rather than on containers and supports languages ranging from NodeJS to Java to Go. JHipster provides the Heroku sub-generator, which was built and is maintained by Heroku, making it easy...
