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 the router

In the Adding routing section in Chapter 7, Bootstrapping the React Project, we included React Router in our project to provide a routing solution for our application. Then, in the Adding the task pages to the application router section in Chapter 9, Creating the Main Application, we configured the definitive routes for the task manager. Just like any of the application’s features, these routes should be tested to make sure they follow the specifications and that they don’t break in the future.

To be able to properly test the application routes, we’ll need to be able to render complete application pages that require a Redux store configuration and an MUI theme provider. Let us create some utilities that will allow us to provide these settings in our tests.

Testing helpers

To host the testing helper files in our project, we’ll create a new src/__tests__ directory that will allow us to clearly distinguish this code from the production...
