JHipster release 3.6.1

What’s new

This is a minor release, correcting a few bugs from yesterday’s 3.6.0 release.

  • Several primary keys have had their length reduced because of #3996. This caused a bug with older (4.6) versions of MySQL, but those length were too big, so it’s a good thing to reduce them if possible. If you have an existing database, you don’t have to alter your tables: having a bigger PK doesn’t do any harm, so migration is totally optional.
  • The Elasticsearch Docker image has been upgraded to v2.3.5, which is its latest version, and which works with Spring Boot 1.4. See #4000.
  • Kubernetes now uses the same image versions as Docker. See #4002.

How to upgrade

For an automatic upgrade, starting with JHipster v3.4.0, use the JHipster upgrade sub-generator on an existing application:

yo jhipster:upgrade

For a manual upgrade, first upgrade your version of JHipster with:

npm update -g generator-jhipster

If you have an existing project, it will still use the JHipster version with which it was generated. To upgrade your project, you must first delete its node_modules folder and then run:

yo jhipster

You can also update your project and all its entities by running

yo jhipster --with-entities

You can also update your entities one-by-one by running again the entity sub-generator, for example if your entity is named Foo

yo jhipster:entity Foo
