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 the cluster configuration manifests

Cluster configuration manifests are the files used by Kubernetes to be able to generate the required resources for your application. These are usually YAML files that contain a Kubernetes object declarative description that Kubernetes will interpret and try to satisfy by creating the requested objects and their resources using the underlying hardware infrastructure.

Writing and maintaining the cluster configuration files is a complex task that usually requires good knowledge and understanding of the different Kubernetes objects. Luckily for us, Eclipse JKube can also take care of creating these files for our application with a good set of opinionated defaults. Since our application has some special requirements such as a PostgreSQL database connection, we’ll need to provide some minor configuration tweaks to override some of these default values.

Eclipse JKube provides different ways to override the default configuration, including...
