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.

Setting up the work environment with IntelliJ IDEA

In this book, we will develop a full-stack web application with Quarkus and React. Thus, we need to get started with writing the code for our application. We will be using IntelliJ IDEA for this purpose; however, you are free to use an integrated development environment (IDE) or editor of your choice. IntelliJ IDEA is a good choice because its ultimate version works well for both frontend and backend development.

IntelliJ IDEA is an IDE developed by JetBrains, which is based on the IntelliJ open source platform. The product is available in two flavors: the free community edition and the Ultimate Edition, which requires a paid subscription. However, there is an early access program that gives you free access to the early builds of the Ultimate version.

The easiest way to get IntelliJ IDEA is to go to the product page and download the appropriate bundle for your system:
