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.

Using JWT security in Quarkus

Quarkus has an extensive list of modules and extensions to provide a security layer for your application. Quarkus Security is the base module upon which the rest of the security extensions are built. You can choose from many of the supported authentication and authorization mechanisms: basic authentication, OpenID Connect, OAuth2, JWT, and so on. On top of that, Quarkus Security provides additional tools to improve the developer experience and testing utilities to enhance the overall application quality and reliability.

In this book, we’ll cover how to implement a JWT-based security authentication and authorization mechanism for Quarkus applications. In the What is Quarkus? section in Chapter 1, Bootstrapping the Project, we learned that Quarkus is based on a set of proven standards and libraries. This is also the case for JWT, which is based on the MicroProfile JWT RBAC security specification of the JWT standard and is provided by the SmallRye...
