Full Stack Quarkus and React

By: Marc Nuri San Felix

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.

Creating a container image

Regardless of your application’s architecture, it’s very likely that you need to distribute your application as a container image to be able to leverage any of the available cloud providers since container images are now the standard unit of distribution. As we’ve learned in the What is a container-based application? section, the fact that the operations teams can manage workloads consistently and uniformly by leveraging container technology is shifting part of their responsibilities to developers, who will now have to ship their applications packaged as containers.

In the Kubernetes world, containers and container images are the way to run your application. This means that one of the main requirements to be able to deploy your application is to package it up into one or more container images and push those images to an external registry available to your Kubernetes cluster. When deployed, Kubernetes will download the container image...
