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.

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open source solution for container orchestration, initially released by Google in 2014 and later transferred to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). It allows you to deploy, scale, and manage container-based applications in an automated, declarative way.

In the Distributing the application as a monolith versus a microservice section in Chapter 11, Quarkus Integration, we went through the advantages and disadvantages of distributing our application as a monolith or as multiple microservices. We learned that when dealing with a distributed architecture, it’s advisable to rely on tools such as Kubernetes that help you automate and orchestrate the deployment and maintenance tasks for your services since there is a large number of them.

One of the main features of Kubernetes is that it abstracts away the underlying hardware infrastructure, providing a declarative interface to configure it. This allows you to define the requirements...
