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.

Configuring the project for

When it comes to deployment options, is a flexible platform that offers multiple alternatives. There are integrations with several programming languages and frameworks, and quick start guides with detailed documentation on how to deploy applications based on each of these technologies. Most of these choices involve performing a container image build from your application or project sources. In addition, there’s also the possibility to deploy a pre-built container image that is publicly available in Docker Hub. This is the most appropriate choice for our application’s requirements since it is based on multiple programming languages and none of the suggested approaches would work for us.

In the Pushing the container image to Docker Hub section of Chapter 12, Deploying Your Application to Kubernetes, we pushed a container image of the task manager packaged for JVM mode to Docker Hub. You might be wondering, why not...
