The high luminosity (HiLumi) upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider will
enable us for more detailed, high-precision experimental analysis of
the heavy ion collisions. Testing both the new theoretical models and
performing high-statistics simulations require novel, easy-to-use,
fast, extendable generators.

The recently developed HIJING++ version is based on the latest version
of PYTHIA8 and contains all the nuclear effects has been included in
the final HIJING2.552 version, including a new version of the shadowing
parametrization and jet quenching module.

Results with the HIJING++ are presented for high-energy heavy ion
collisions from small to large systems from pp to AA collisions,
including the recent XeXe and PbPb data. We also present the extended
performance and benchmark test of the generator.
