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.

However, you might not be using IntelliJ, or even if you do, it’s always important to know how to execute the tests using the command line. This is also the way you’d configure the test execution in a CI pipeline.

Our application was bootstrapped using Create React App, and one of its main features is the provision of scripts for your application that you don’t need to maintain. This is the case for the test scripts too, which are linked in the package.json file as we can see in the following screenshot:

In the Testing helpers section, we added some testing helper files to a directory named __tests__. Unfortunately, Jest treats these files as tests too by default. We’...
