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.

Testing React components

Depending on the complexity of your components and their purpose, it might be advisable that you implement specific unit tests for them. This ensures the component behaves according to specification for every defined scenario and property.

Unit testing

Unit testing is a software development technique by which developers write automatic tests that verify that the smallest testable units of an application (called units) behave according to its design requirements.

Let us see a practical example by implementing a test for the CompleteChip component. In the Implementing a Task Edit dialog section in Chapter 9, Creating the Main Application, we created this custom component that renders the completion date of the provided task, or nothing if the provided task is not completed. To implement the test for this component, we’ll start by creating a new CompleteChip.test.js file in the src/tasks directory.

Test file naming

By default, Jest, with...
