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.

Testing the task manager

We’ve already covered the complete implementation of the task manager backend. In Chapter 2, Adding Persistence, we created the persistence layer for the application. Then, in Chapter 3, Creating the HTTP API, we implemented the business and presentation layers. Finally, in Chapter 4, Securing the Application, we secured the HTTP endpoints of the task manager. We could implement unit tests to verify the application functionality for each layer individually. However, this approach would require mocking each layer’s dependencies and would require a complex test implementation, which would also mean that its maintenance would be expensive. Since our business logic is not too complex, we’ll treat each of the individual application features as a test unit and implement an integration test for each functionality covering the three layers. Let us start by configuring our application.
