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.

Testing Your Backend

In this chapter, we’ll implement tests to verify the task manager’s backend features we implemented in the previous chapters. We’ll start by learning about testing in Quarkus and its specific dependency to test JWT-secured endpoints. Then, we’ll implement and analyze the tests to cover each of the functionalities that we developed for the task manager and learn how to execute them.

By the end of this chapter, you should be able to implement unit and integration tests for your Quarkus applications. You should also have a basic understanding of the Quarkus testing framework. Providing tests for your applications will help you build solid and reliable software and minimize its maintenance effort.

We will be covering the following topics in this chapter:

  • Testing in Quarkus
  • Testing the task manager
