This application was generated using JHipster 4.0.3, you can find documentation and help at

This is a "microservice" application intended to be part of a microservice architecture, please refer to the Doing microservices with JHipster page of the documentation for more information.

This application is configured for Service Discovery and Configuration with the JHipster-Registry. On launch, it will refuse to start if it is not able to connect to the JHipster-Registry at http://localhost:8761. For more information, read our documentation on Service Discovery and Configuration with the JHipster-Registry.


To start your application in the dev profile, simply run:

./gradlew bootRepackage -Pdev buildDocker # this will build all required containers

docker-compose -f src/main/docker/app.yml up -d

The application will listen on 9080 for requests

For further instructions on how to develop with JHipster, have a look at Using JHipster in development.

Building for production

To optimize the conferencemanager application for production, run:

./gradlew -Pprod clean bootRepackage

To ensure everything worked, run:

java -jar build/libs/*.war

Refer to Using JHipster in production for more details.


To launch your application's tests, run:

./gradlew test

Other tests

Performance tests are run by Gatling and written in Scala. They're located in src/test/gatling and can be run with:

./gradlew gatlingRun

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 mariadb database in a docker container, run:

docker-compose -f src/main/docker/mariadb.yml up -d

To stop it and remove the container, run:

docker-compose -f src/main/docker/mariadb.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:

./gradlew bootRepackage -Pprod buildDocker

Then run:

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.
