Add changelog breakpoints
»Typically, the database schema grows over time as requirements evolve. With this feature, a developer can add breakpoints to a project. All modifications to the database schema after the breakpoint are written into a new Liquibase changelog / Flyway migration script, so it can be copied and used onto an existing codebase.
»Add support for MongoDB as a document-oriented database. The schema migration should be done with Mongock, as this is the most mature solution at the moment.
Custom startup banner
»Provide a textfield for adding a custom banner text. It is translated to ASCII and shown during application startup.
Use MapStruct for DTO mapping
»Currently the mapping from a JPA entity to a DTO is done in the service class manually. While this gives a lot of flexibility, with the new option for MapStruct the code is getting shorter and more descriptive.
»Add an option for pagination to the generated REST API. Provide a minimal Page class for the response which reflects the current pagination information.
»Add MariaDB to the list of supported Databases.
»Add a possibility to select between Java or Kotlin as the preferred programming language. Use the Kotlin DSL in case of a Gradle build and hide the Lombok option for Kotlin projects.
Separate service and service interface
»The services generated for the CRUD controllers should have a separated interface and a service implementing it. This can be configurable with a dedicated option.
»Add an option for organizing the classes in a more domain-driven way, organizing the classes around the entity.
Use ResponseEntity at controllers
»Most developers prefer to use the ResponseEntity class in RestController methods, keeping the body and HTTP status together.
Add Many-to-many relation type
»In most cases it's preferable to create an intermediate table together with two Many-to-one relations, as this gives more flexibility in the long run. However a Many-to-many relation can be useful for simple assignments with a composite primary key.
Spring Security with JWT
»Add support for protecting the REST API with JWT, backed by Spring Security. Users can be loaded from the database.
Add integration tests
»Generate IT tests based on the controllers of the project (CRUD as well as custom controllers). A containerized instance of the database can be used based on Testcontainers.
