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.

Deploying Your Application to Kubernetes

In this chapter, we’ll learn how to deploy our task manager application to Kubernetes. We’ll start by learning about Kubernetes and containers and what the main features that have made these technologies so popular are. Then, we’ll learn how to create a container image for our application and how to push it to an external container registry. Next, we’ll create the required Kubernetes configuration files to be able to deploy our containerized application. Finally, we’ll deploy our application to a minikube Kubernetes cluster.

By the end of this chapter, you should have a basic understanding of Kubernetes and application containers. You should also be able to create container images for your Quarkus applications and deploy them to Kubernetes clusters to make them publicly available.

We will be covering the following topics in this chapter:

  • What is Kubernetes?
  • Creating a container image
  • Creating...
