Full Stack Quarkus and React

By: Marc Nuri San Felix

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.

Creating the Main Application

In this chapter, we’ll create the core features for the frontend application, which will complete the task manager we’ve been developing throughout this book. We’ll start by adding user-specific features that will allow users to easily log out from the application and change their passwords. We’ll also add the required functionality for users to be able to create projects so that they can group tasks into different categories, and the task management features so that they can create, delete, update, and mark tasks as complete.

By the end of this chapter, you should be able to use Redux Toolkit and MUI to implement user interfaces in React to be able to consume REST HTTP APIs. Being able to create user interfaces for your backend will allow you to create complete usable full-stack applications. You should be able to understand the complete cycle of web application development, from the persistence layer through the backend...
