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.

In this chapter, we’ve seen how to add a fully reactive persistence layer to our application using Hibernate Reactive with Panache and the Reactive PostgreSQL client. We started by adding the required dependencies to our project using the Quarkus Maven plugin and then providing the required configuration for both the production and development environments. Then, we implemented the entities that we’ll be using in our task manager application and went over the different JPA and Hibernate Java annotations we used to configure them. We also examined Quarkus Dev Services and what advantages it provides both for the development mode and when running tests.

You should now be able to provide a basic persistence layer for your applications. In the next chapter, we’ll create the HTTP API that will be consumed by the frontend part of the application. We’ll create the different services that’ll consume the data layer we just developed and implement...
