This application was generated using JHipster 3.12.0, you can find documentation and help at https://jhipster.github.io/documentation-archive/v3.12.0.
Before you can build this project, you must install and configure the following dependencies on your machine:
- Node.js: We use Node to run a development web server and build the project. Depending on your system, you can install Node either from source or as a pre-packaged bundle.
After installing Node, you should be able to run the following command to install development tools (like Bower and BrowserSync). You will only need to run this command when dependencies change in package.json.
We use Gulp as our build system. Install the Gulp command-line tool globally with:
npm install -g gulp-cli
Run the following commands in two separate terminals to create a blissful development experience where your browser auto-refreshes when files change on your hard drive.
specifying a newer version in
bower.json. You can also run
bower update and
bower install to manage dependencies.
-h flag on any command to see how you can use it. For example,
bower update -h.

Building for production
To optimize the treemarks application for production, run:
./mvnw -Pprod clean package
index.html so it references these new files.
To ensure everything worked, run:
java -jar target/*.war
Then navigate to http://localhost:8080 in your browser.
Refer to Using JHipster in production for more details.
To launch your application's tests, run:
./mvnw clean test
UI end-to-end tests are powered by Protractor, which is built on top of WebDriverJS. They're located in
and can be run by starting Spring Boot in one terminal (
./mvnw spring-boot:run) and running the tests (
gulp itest) in a second one.
Performance tests are run by Gatling and written in Scala. They're located in
src/test/gatling and can be run with:
For more information, refer to the Running tests page.
Using Docker to simplify development (optional)
You can use Docker to improve your JHipster development experience. A number of docker-compose configuration are available in the
src/main/docker folder to launch required third party services.
For example, to start a postgresql database in a docker container, run:
docker-compose -f src/main/docker/postgresql.yml up -d
To stop it and remove the container, run:
docker-compose -f src/main/docker/postgresql.yml down
You can also fully dockerize your application and all the services that it depends on. To achieve this, first build a docker image of your app by running:
./mvnw package -Pprod docker:build
docker-compose -f src/main/docker/app.yml up -d
For more information refer to Using Docker and Docker-Compose, this page also contains information on the docker-compose sub-generator (
yo jhipster:docker-compose), which is able to generate docker configurations for one or several JHipster applications.
Continuous Integration (optional)
To set up a CI environment, consult the Setting up Continuous Integration page.
