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.

Chapter 8. Introduction to Microservice Server-Side Technologies

Wasn't it easy to develop a production-ready monolithic application with JHipster? So far, we have created an application from scratch, added a few entities with JDL Studio, and then deployed it to the production environment along with tests. We have also added a continuous integration and continuous delivery pipeline. Wasn't the experience faster, easier, and better than coding everything from scratch?

So what's next? Yes, you guessed it right—microservices!

Microservices is the buzzword everywhere these days. Many companies out there are trying to solve their problems with microservices. We already saw an overview of the benefits of microservices in Chapter 1Introduction to Modern Web Application Development.

In this chapter, we will look at the following:

  • Benefits of microservices over monoliths
  • Components that we need for building a complete microservices architecture

In this chapter, we will see how the monolithic application...
