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 worked on the core features of the frontend application and finished implementing the task manager we’ve been creating throughout this book. We started by adding user-specific features to allow users to log out of the application and change their passwords. Then, we worked on the core features of the application by adding functionality for users to be able to create projects and perform task management tasks. We also cleaned up the project of residual, not needed files, and learned how to run it in development mode to check that the new functionality is working.

You should now be able to use Redux Toolkit, React Router, and MUI to implement your own React components to build user interfaces that consume REST APIs. In the next chapter, we’ll introduce Jest and other frontend testing tools, and learn how to implement tests to ensure that the implemented functionality works according to our specifications.
