In this course, you will learn how to build applications using some of the hottest technologies in the industry today, Spring Boot and Angular.
Spring Boot brings you an enterprise class backend. While Angular gives your application a modern web front end.
Bringing these two technologies together is JHipster.
What is JHipster?
Winner of the 2017 JAX Innovation Award, JHipster is a development platform which allows you to generate, develop and deploy Spring Boot + Angular applications quickly and painlessly.
You will start off the course by building a simple Spring Boot + Angular application from scratch. While Spring Boot takes care of a lot of the boilerplate configuration, you'll see there is still plenty of coding to create the Angular application.
Next, we will take a closer look at JHipster. We will show you how to setup your development environment to use JHipster. Then we recreate the Spring Boot + Angular application using JHipster. Both applications use Hibernate to support access to traditional SQL databases.
But we don't stop there!
You also get to build an Angular application with Spring Boot for MongoDB. One of the hottest NoSQL databases in use today!
Another core strength of JHipster is Spring Boot Microservices. You will get access to a whole module showing you how to build Spring Boot Microservices!
In the last part of the course, you get to see Spring Boot and Angular in action. We use JHipster to develop a real world customer loyalty application.
This is a real world application, with a real customer.
The real world application is designed for you to learn from two Spring Framework professionals. You get to see the whole process from the beginning design, to deploying the application on AWS.
You will get to see Dan and John interview the customer about the requirements of the application.
Then, you get to see step by step how to create the Spring Boot + Angular using JHipster.
