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.

This chapter explains how to test your Spring Boot backend. The backend of an application is responsible for handling business logic and data storage of the application. Proper testing of the backend ensures that the application works as intended, is secure and is easier to maintain. We will create some unit tests in relation to our backend—these will make your backend code easier to maintain. We will use the database application that we created in the previous chapter as a starting point.In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Testing in Spring Boot
  • Creating unit tests
  • Running tests
