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 in Quarkus

In the Continuous testing section in Chapter 1, Bootstrapping the Project, we introduced some of Quarkus’ testing capabilities. We specifically learned about continuous testing, one of the core testing features that was introduced in Quarkus 2.X. We also examined some of the test code that was bootstrapped from the wizard and even implemented a new endpoint and its test using test-driven development (TDD).

It’s clear that providing a good test framework is one of Quarkus’ priorities, including providing the best possible developer experience. In the Quarkus Dev Services section in Chapter 2, Adding Persistence, we learned about Dev Services and how we don’t need to deploy a database when running the application in development mode. Aligned with the goal of providing a great developer experience, Dev Services also works for tests. This means that when Quarkus executes your tests, it will automatically deploy a database...
