Full Stack Quarkus and React

By: Marc Nuri San Felix

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.

Implementing the task manager data model

In this book, we are going to implement a full-featured task manager web application. In this chapter, we’ll start by implementing the data model that we’ll be using to persist the application’s state in a database.

The following diagram shows the different classes/entities that we are going to implement and their relationships:

The model is very straightforward: the main entity is a Task that might be assigned to a Project and always belongs to a User. The application is quite simple: a user logs into the task manager and can create different tasks. Each task has a title and a longer optional description. The user may assign a priority to the task and mark it as complete when it’s done. In addition, the user can create different projects that can be used to optionally group the tasks.
