JHipster 7.0

What’s This About?

The JHipster team released JHipster 7.0 on March 21, 2021. JHipster is an application generator for microservice and monolith applications.

Until 2020, JHipster was Spring Boot only. But now it runs on RedHat’s Quarkus and Micronaut. And it even has .Net and NodeJS support in beta!

So what does JHipster do for us? Well, we can use it to jump-start our next project by generating a project, complete with admin code, user management, tests, CI & deployment. Or we can learn technologies by running code in our environment. We create the same application with different technologies — monolith vs. microservice, NoSQL vs. SQL back-end, Spring Boot vs. Micronaut vs. NodeJS vs. .NET, or React vs. Angular vs. Vue front-end.

And JHipster generates best-practice Java and Javascript code with just a small proprietary support library. It doesn’t have proprietary layers as Grails does!

What’s in the Release?

These are the main features:

Should I Upgrade?

No. Wait for the inevitable 7.0.1 release to fix some bugs.

Still, Where Can I Get It?

You upgrade JHipster with npm install -g generator-jhipster. Then you could update your project with jhipster upgrade. Again, don’t.

When Will the Next Version Be Out?

Guys, cool it! They just got this big release out. So give the JHipster team a break!

Java Tech Popularity Index Q1/2024:
Developer job ads down 32% year over year, Stack Overflow questions dropped 55% since ChatGPT. I now recommend IntelliJ Community Edition because many AI code assistants don't run in Eclipse. Job ads for Quarkus hit an all-time high.
