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.

Creating the HTTP API

In this chapter, we will create the HTTP API that will be consumed by the frontend of our task manager. We’ll start by learning about how to write HTTP REST endpoints in Quarkus. Then, we’ll define the services that will encapsulate the business logic of our application and make use of the data layer we implemented in Chapter 2, Adding Persistence. Next, we will implement the endpoints that will expose the functionality of the different services to the frontend application.

By the end of this chapter, you should be able to implement HTTP and representational state transfer (REST) endpoints in Quarkus. You should also be able to create singleton services and use dependency injection to provide their instances to the endpoint implementation classes.

We will be covering the following topics in this chapter:

  • Writing HTTP REST endpoints in Quarkus
  • Implementing the task manager business logic
  • Exposing the task manager to the frontend...
