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.

  2. We are using React Query for networking, so we have to initialize the query provider first.

You learned the basics of React Query in Chapter 10, Consuming the REST API with React.

The QueryClientProvider component is used to connect and provide QueryClient to your application. Open your App.tsx file and add the...
