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.

Adding the edit functionality

We will implement the edit functionality by adding the Edit button to each table row. When the row Edit button is pressed, it opens a modal form where the user can edit the existing car and save their changes. The idea is that we pass car data from the grid row to the edit form, and the form fields are populated when the form is opened:

  1. First, create a file called EditCar.tsx in the components folder. We have to define a FormProps type for our props, and this can be defined inside our component because we don’t need this type anywhere else. The type of data that will be passed to the EditCar component is the CarResponse type. We will also create a state for car data like we did in the add functionality section. The code for the EditCar.tsx file looks like the following:
    // EditCar.tsx
    import { useState } from 'react';
    import { Car, CarResponse } from '../types';
    type FormProps = {
      cardata: CarResponse;
