Full Stack Quarkus and React

Overview of this book

React has established itself as one of the most popular and widely adopted frameworks thanks to its simple yet scalable app development abilities. Quarkus comes across as a fantastic alternative for backend development by boosting developer productivity with features such as pre-built integrations, application services, and more that bring a new, revolutionary developer experience to Java. To make the best use of both, this hands-on guide will help you get started with Quarkus and React to create and deploy an end-to-end web application. This book is divided into three parts. In the first part, you’ll begin with an introduction to Quarkus and its features, learning how to bootstrap a Quarkus project from the ground up to create a tested and secure HTTP server for your backend. The second part focuses on the frontend, showing you how to create a React project from scratch to build the application’s user interface and integrate it with the Quarkus backend. The last part guides you through creating cluster configuration manifests and deploying them to Kubernetes as well as other alternatives, such as By the end of this full stack development book, you’ll be confident in your skills to combine the robustness of both frameworks to create and deploy standalone, fully functional web applications.

In this chapter, we learned how to configure Quarkus and React to be able to consume the secured HTTP APIs from our application’s backend. Then, we used Redux Toolkit to implement the infrastructure to manage the frontend session. Next, we implemented a login page to be able to create new sessions, and a user management page to showcase how to protect components from users who don’t have authorized roles. Finally, we learned how to start the backend and the frontend applications in development mode to be able to check that everything works accordingly.

You should now be able to use Redux Toolkit to implement the authentication and authorization infrastructure for React applications to be able to consume secure HTTP APIs based on JWT.

In the next chapter, we’ll learn how to implement the main logic of the frontend application. We’ll replace the main screen and implement some CRUD operations that will make use of the backend HTTP API.
