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. By the end of this book, you'll be able to build a full stack application using the latest tools and modern best practices.

In this chapter, we focused on networking with React. We started with promises, which make asynchronous network calls easier to implement. This is a cleaner way to handle calls, and it’s much better than using traditional callback functions.

In this book, we are using the Axios and React Query libraries for networking in our frontend. We went through the basics of using these libraries. We implemented two React example apps using the fetch API and Axios to call REST APIs, and we presented the response data in the browser. We learned about race conditions and looked at how to fetch data using the React Query library.

In the next chapter, we will look at some useful React components that we are going to use in our frontend.
