JHipster release 0.3.0

JHipster gives you Yeoman + Maven + Spring + AngularJS all working together in one handy generator.

What’s new

  • JDK 7 is now a required minimum (if you use JDK 6, don’t call yourself a hipster!)
  • Spring configuration is now XML-less! The only XML configuration file we have left belongs to Spring Security. We need to wait until the next version of Spring Security to replace this file.
  • The connection pool has changed: we now use HikariCP
  • For users who have chosen to use Spring 4, updated the application to Spring 4.0.0.RC2

How to upgrade

Update your version of JHipster with:

npm update -g generator-jhipster

You can suppress the now useless XML files:

  • src/main/resources/META-INF/persistence.xml
  • src/main/resources/META-INF/spring/applicationContext-database.xml
  • src/test/resources/META-INF/spring/applicationContext-database.xml

And then you can update your project when you run again

yo jhipster
