Full Stack Quarkus and React

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.

Data persistence in Quarkus

Data persistence is the means by which your application will be able to store and retrieve its data from one execution to the next. This means that any data that was input will survive after the process that created it has ended. Quarkus has a growing list of extensions to support data persistence. In Chapter 1, Bootstrapping the Project, we learned about Quarkus’ support for both the imperative and reactive paradigms. Since the reactive approach will bring considerable performance improvements to our application, in this book, we’re going to use Hibernate Reactive, a reactive persistence API, in its simplified Panache version, to provide data persistence to our application. We are also going to use a PostgreSQL database since there is a reactive client extension for Quarkus too. Let us now see which dependencies we should add to the project.
