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.

Part 1– Creating a Backend with Quarkus
Part 2– Creating a Frontend with React
Part 3– Deploying Your Application to the Cloud


In this chapter, we learned how to integrate the React frontend and Quarkus backend projects so that the application can be deployed and distributed as a single component monolith. We started by learning the pros and cons of choosing a microservice architecture. Then, we evaluated why starting with a monolithic approach for our task manager made sense. Next, we learned how to configure the Maven build to include the frontend resources, and how to implement the required logic to serve them from Quarkus. Finally, we made the required changes to the native build configuration and learned how to run the application.

You should now be able to perform the required steps to be able to serve an SPA from Quarkus. In the next chapter, we’ll learn how to deploy the application to Kubernetes.
