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 CRUD functionalities

The task manager application allows users to create tasks, manage their completion status, assign them different levels of priority, group them into projects, and so on. So far, we’ve learned how to bootstrap a generic frontend application with global state management and we’ve added some features related to user management. However, we haven’t implemented anything related to the main application functionalities yet. Let’s continue by implementing the project CRUD features.

Adding the project management features

The main purpose of projects is to allow the application’s users to group the tasks they create. For example, users can create a Home and a Work project and add home-specific tasks or work-specific tasks to each of them. Later, they can filter the tasks for each of these projects, so they can focus on each of them separately. Our first goal is to provide the means for users to be able to create projects. Let...
