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 3– Deploying Your Application to the Cloud


In this chapter, we learned how to deploy our task manager application to Kubernetes. We started by learning about Kubernetes, and container technologies in general, and what their main advantages are compared to more traditional deployment strategies. Then, we learned how to create a container image for our application and the required cluster configuration manifests to be able to deploy it to Kubernetes using Eclipse JKube. Finally, we deployed the application into a local minikube Kubernetes cluster.

You should now have a basic understanding of Kubernetes. You should be able to create and publish container images for your applications, and know how to deploy them to Kubernetes to expose them to the world. In the following chapter, we’ll learn how to deploy the application to, one of the most popular Cloud application platforms with one of its free pricing plans.
