Follow on Twitter @FullstackBook
JHipster is an open source development platform that allows you to easily create web applications and microservices from scratch without spending time on wiring and integrating different technologies together. Updated to include JHipster 6, Java 11, Spring Boot 2.1, Vue.js, and Istio, this second edition of Full Stack Development with JHipster will help you build full stack applications and microservices seamlessly.
You’ll start by understanding JHipster and its associated tools, along with the essentials of full stack development, before building a monolithic web application. You’ll then learn the JHipster Domain Language (JDL) with entity modeling using JDL Studio. With this book, you’ll create production-ready web applications using Spring Boot, Spring Framework, Angular, and Bootstrap, and run tests and set up Continuous Integration pipelines with Jenkins. As you advance, you’ll learn how to convert your monoliths to microservices and how to package your application for production with various deployment options, including Heroku and Google Cloud. You’ll also learn about Docker and Kubernetes, along with an introduction to the Istio service mesh. Finally, you’ll build your client-side with React and Vue.js and discover JHipster’s best practices.
By the end of the book, you’ll be able to leverage the best tools available to build modern web applications.
