Microservices for the Masses with Spring Boot and JHipster - RWX 2018

Microservices are being deployed by many Java Hipsters. If you're working with a large team that needs different release cycles for product components, microservices can be a blessing. If you're working at your VW Restoration Shop and running its online store with your own software, having five services to manage and deploy can be a real pain.

This presentation will show you how to use JHipster to create Angular + Spring Boot apps with a unified front-end. You will leave with the know-how to create your own excellent apps!

Bonus: I'll show you how to use Ionic for JHipster to create native applications on mobile. It's pretty darn slick! 👌

Blog posts:

* Develop a Microservices Architecture with OAuth 2.0 and JHipster
* Use Ionic for JHipster to Create Mobile Apps with OIDC Authentication

Source code for the demo is available on GitHub.

Download the JHipster Mini-Book v5.0 for free from InfoQ!

You can also watch my JHipster Microservices course on Pluralsight.

  35. Progressive Web Apps Originate from a secure origin, load while

    offline, and reference a web app manifest.
  36. Progressive Web Apps Can be installed on your mobile device,

    look and act like a native application, but are distributed through the web.
  37. Progressive Web Apps Are fast!

  38. Enable PWA in JHipster <script> if ('serviceWorker' in navigator) {

    window.addEventListener('load', function() { navigator.serviceWorker.register('/service-worker.js') .then(function () { console.log('Service Worker Registered'); }); }); } </script> gateway/src/main/webapp/index.html
  39. Force HTTPS in Spring Boot gateway/src/main/java/com/okta/developer/gateway/config/OAuth2SsoConfiguration.java @Configuration public class OAuth2SsoConfiguration

    extends WebSecurityConfigurerAdapter { @Override protected void configure(HttpSecurity http) throws Exception { http.requiresChannel() .requestMatchers(r -> r.getHeader("X-Forwarded-Proto") != null) .requiresSecure(); } } developer.okta.com/blog/2018/07/30/10-ways-to-secure-spring-boot

  47. Part 4 Developing Mobile Apps with JHipster What is Ionic?

    Why? Ionic Module for JHipster JWT and OIDC Support Entity Generator
  48. Ionic Ionic Framework Develop Hybrid & PWA Apps https://ionicframework.com Stencil

    Vanilla Web Components https://stenciljs.com PWA Toolkit Lightning fast PWAs https://github.com/ionic- team/ionic-pwa-toolkit
  49. Why? The first version of 21-Points Health I wrote with

    JHipster 2.x was painful to use on a mobile device. Versions 4.x and 5.x are better, but still not great. I want to develop the best user experience. Native apps are painful to distribute, but work better than PWAs (on iOS).
  50. How is a mobile app for JHipster different from its

    Angular UI?
  51. Run it! yo jhipster-ionic Ionic Module for JHipster Because Ionic

    Apps need some JHipster too! https://github.com/oktadeveloper/generator-jhipster-ionic Install Ionic and the Ionic Module for JHipster, using npm: npm install -g ionic generator-jhipster-ionic Profit!
  52. Use Ionic for JHipster to Create Mobile Apps developer.okta.com/blog/2018/01/30/jhipster-ionic-with-oidc-authentication

  53. Create an app: ignite new myapp -b ignite-jhipster Ignite JHipster

    https://github.com/ruddell/ignite-jhipster Install Ignite CLI and Ignite JHipster, using npm: npm i -g ignite-cli ignite-jhipster Ignite! A React Native boilerplate for JHipster apps
  54. Build a Mobile App with React Native developer.okta.com/blog/2018/10/10/react-native-spring-boot-mobile-app
