  6. https://jhipster.tech @java_hipster Reactive support • One of the big new

    features from Spring Boot 2 ◦ Useful for specific use-cases ◦ SQL databases are not supported yet • Support is a work in progress ◦ No commitment yet

    10 support • New Maven BOM ◦ The “jhipster-dependencies” replaces the Spring Platform BOM which was deprecated by Pivotal ◦ New “jhipster-framework” and “jhipster-parent” projects
  8. https://jhipster.tech @java_hipster React support • React support was one of

    the most requested feature ◦ Initial concerns due to licence ◦ Experimental support was added in JHipster 4 • Our React support has the same scope as the Angular support ◦ Written in Typescript (Similar to Angular) ◦ Redux + react-redux + Axios + Promise middleware + redux-thunk ◦ React router v4 ◦ Bootstrap 4 + Reactstrap ◦ Webpack setup close to our Angular setup
  9. https://jhipster.tech @java_hipster Improved Angular support • New layout for microservice

    entities • No more modal windows when editing entities • Lazy loading for admin modules • Better date handling with MomentJS • AngularJS support has been removed

    Angular and React ◦ Improved build speeds ◦ Reduction in bundle size ◦ Simplified configuration • Migration to ts-loader ◦ Speed improvements, especially in development • Better caching with cache-loader
  11. https://jhipster.tech @java_hipster Prettier support • https://prettier.io/ is an opinionated code

    formatter ◦ Works with TypeScript, CSS & Sass ◦ Must be consistent with the lint configuration ◦ Runs by default with JHipster 5 ◦ Supports pre-commit hooks with Husky • In the future ◦ Support the Prettier Java plugin as soon as it is stable ▪ https://github.com/thorbenvh8/prettier-java
  12. https://jhipster.tech @java_hipster JDL v2 with application generation • Application generation

    via JDL ◦ Microservices with their entities can be grouped ◦ Reusable application configurations • WIP: Migration to http://sap.github.io/chevrotain from PegJS
  13. https://jhipster.tech @java_hipster AWS deployment • All the JHipster 4 deployment

    options still work ◦ And they are still awesome! • Only AWS gets a much-needed upgrade ◦ “jhipster aws” deploys to AWS Beanstalk ▪ For simple projects ▪ Most issues for JHipster 4 are fixed, but still a bit buggy ◦ “jhipster aws-containers” deploys to AWS Fargate ▪ For complex projects ▪ Uses Amazon Elastic Container Service ▪ Deploys on multiple AZ ▪ Must be fine-tuned for complex microservices architectures
  14. https://jhipster.tech @java_hipster JHipster blueprints • Blueprints enable users to customize

    parts of the generator with plugins ◦ Customize what is required • Enables to plug in your own client side templates or server side templates ◦ JHipster Kotlin blueprint is an example ◦ Possibility to add client side framework like VueJS by community
