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.

Deleting the no longer needed files and running the application

We’ve finished implementing the task manager frontend application functionality. However, we bootstrapped the application using the Create React App script, which added some residual files we no longer need and that we should delete. Let’s go ahead and delete the following files from the project:

  • src/App.css
  • src/logo.svg
  • src/InitialPage.js

Now, let’s start the application. In the Running the application section of Chapter 8, Creating the Login Page, we already went through these steps:

  1. Start the Quarkus backend from the project root by executing the following command:
    ./mvnw quarkus:dev
  2. In a different Terminal, and from the frontend root (src/main/frontend), start the React development server by executing the following command:
    npm start

The frontend application should start and a browser window should open automatically at http://localhost:3000. The page should...
