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.

This opens a list of Gradle tasks, and you can start the build process by double clicking the build task, as illustrated in the following screenshot. If the Gradle tasks window is empty, click the root folder of the project in Eclipse:

This creates a new build/libs folder to your project, where you will find JAR files. By default, two JAR files are created:
