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.

What this book covers

Chapter 1, Bootstrapping the Project, introduces Quarkus and the tooling that will be used, and shows you how to bootstrap a project for an application that will be implemented throughout the book.

Chapter 2, Adding Persistence, shows how to implement a persistence layer in Quarkus using Hibernate and the Java Persistence API (JPA).

Chapter 3, Creating the HTTP API, explains how to create a service layer and use dependency injection to implement an HTTP API in Quarkus.

Chapter 4, Securing the Application, shows how to provide a security layer based on JSON web tokens (JWTs) to protect the HTTP API.

Chapter 5, Testing Your Backend, introduces the Quarkus testing framework and Quarkus Dev Services and explains how to use them to implement tests for your application.

Chapter 6, Building a Native Image, shows you how to create a native executable for your Quarkus application.

Chapter 7, Bootstrapping the React Project, introduces React and the libraries that will be used to implement the frontend part of the application, and shows you how to bootstrap the project.

Chapter 8, Creating the Login Page, explains how to implement the authorization infrastructure and how to create the login page for the frontend side of the application.

Chapter 9, Creating the Main Application, shows how to implement the core features of the application and how to consume the backend’s HTTP API.

Chapter 10, Testing Your Frontend, explains how to implement unit and integration tests for your frontend applications based on React.

Chapter 11, Quarkus Integration, shows how to integrate the frontend application with Quarkus.

Chapter 12, Deploying Your Application to Kubernetes, gives a quick overview of Kubernetes and explains how to deploy the application to a Minikube Kubernetes cluster.

Chapter 13, Deploying Your Application to, shows you how to deploy the application to and make it publicly available.

Chapter 14, Creating a Continuous Integration Pipeline, introduces GitHub Actions and explains how to create a continuous integration (CI) pipeline.
