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.

Basics of ORM, JPA, and Hibernate

ORM and JPA are widely used techniques in software development for handling relational databases. You don’t have to write complex SQL queries; instead, you can work with objects, which is more natural for Java developers. In this way, ORM and JPA can speed up your development process by reducing the time you spend writing and debugging SQL code. Many JPA implementations can also generate a database schema automatically based on your Java entity classes. In brief:

  • Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) is a technique that allows you to fetch from and manipulate a database by using an object-oriented programming paradigm. ORM is really good for programmers because it relies on object-oriented concepts rather than database structures. It also makes development much faster and reduces the amount of source code. ORM is mostly independent of databases, and developers don’t have to worry about vendor-specific SQL statements.
