JHipster: Micronaut + Angular + SQL Database CRUD example

Hello everyone, today we will learn how to generate a Monolithic Full-stack web application that is a basic Employee Management Application using JHipster. Technologies used: Micronaut, Angular, H2DB, Maven.

User Interface

JHipster is an open-source application development platform to quickly generate, develop, & deploy modern web applications & microservice architectures using Angular or React or Vue and Spring Boot or Micronaut Frameworks.
Micronaut is a modern, JVM-predicated, full-stack Java framework designed for building modular, facilely testable JVM applications with support for Java, Kotlin and the Groovy language.

JHipster Micronaut Environment Setup

Step 1: Install Java 11, click here
