In the first part of this series we introduced the basics of JHipster – we scaffolded a basic monolithic Java/Angular application and used JHipster’s command line options to generate some entities, services, and web modules for creating, retrieving, updating and deleting those entities.Continue reading
Putting together and bootstrapping a solid application complete with all the building blocks can be quite an undertaking at the best of times, we have to consider so many things-for example:Continue reading
Let’s say your web-application communicates with a 3rd party service and this service is somewhat fragile. Either because of its fragility – or for some other reason – under no circumstances do you want your application to bombard this service with concurrent requests. Whenever a component needs to make a request to this service, and there is already another request waiting for a response, the new request should wait until the previous request completes.Continue reading

Guests learned about the capabilities of this complete, lightweight, and ready framework which was initially released last year.
It certainly took me a while to get used to things – wrapping my head around the whole non-blocking nature of the Node runtime and how it uses a single thread to process requests – and how important it was that I definitely do not block that thread! Continue reading
- dealing with a whole bunch of endpoints in a typical application
- performing multiple roundtrips to the server for multiple resources in order to get data for a single page of the UI
- getting the request parameters right
