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.

Adding user-specific features

In Chapter 8, Creating the Login Page, we implemented the Redux store slices and developed the required logic to manage users and their authentication and authorization. In this section, we’ll take advantage of these features to implement a dialog for users to be able to change their passwords. We will also add an icon to the TopBar component to allow users to perform actions related to their account and session management, such as triggering the change password workflow or logging out of the application. Let’s start by implementing the password change dialog.

Implementing a password change dialog

To implement the password change dialog, we’ll create a new React component called ChangePasswordDialog that will contain two required text fields to introduce – the current and new passwords – and two action buttons to confirm or cancel the action. The resulting component should look like this when rendered:
