Overview of this book

If you’re an existing Java developer who wants to go full stack or pick up another frontend framework, this book is your concise introduction to React. In this three-part build-along, you’ll create a robust Spring Boot backend, a React frontend, and then deploy them together. This new edition is updated to Spring Boot 3 and includes expanded content on security and testing. For the first time ever, it also covers React development with the in-demand TypeScript. You’ll explore the elements that go into creating a REST API and testing, securing, and deploying your applications. You’ll learn about custom Hooks, third-party components, and MUI.

In this chapter, we started to learn about React, which we will be using to build our frontend. In our frontend development, we will use ES6, which makes our code cleaner, as we saw in the chapter. Before starting to develop with React, we covered the basics, such as the React component, JSX, props, state, and hooks. We then went through the features we need for further development. We learned about conditional rendering and context, as well as how to handle lists, forms, and events with React.

In the next chapter, we will focus on TypeScript with React. We will learn the basics of TypeScript and how to use it in our React projects.
