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 learned how to write tests for our JavaScript frontend application based on React, React Router, and Redux. We also provided complete test coverage for the task manager’s features by implementing a complete portfolio of unit and integration tests. We started by learning about the required and recommended dependencies to implement our tests and added the missing ones. Then, we developed tests for our React components and our React Router configuration. We also wrote tests to verify the application’s features from a user perspective and learned how to run them from the command line.

You should now be able to implement tests for your JavaScript frontend applications based on React, React Router, and Redux Toolkit using Jest, MSW, and React Testing Library. In the following chapter, we’ll integrate the frontend and backend projects and create an API gateway in Quarkus so that the frontend application can be served from the backend.
