About the Book

Book description

Let us full stack development with Spring Boot and React JS

Key Features

● This book has a very specific goal to make developing REST applications easier and focusing on common challenges of the design of the application with best practices.
● This book is providing practical code examples from real-world experiences.
● This book is not only about Spring Boot 2.2 and React JS overview but also has an in-depth discussion about adopted REST Architectural pattern and its constraints to create the REST APIs.
● The book can act as a tool for learning Spring Boot 2.2 and React JS for the first time as well as a guide and reference for those wanting to dig deeper into specific features.
● This book is also providing deeper information about the Spring Security and JWT token-based authentication for your REST applications.
● Containerization using Docker is another key feature of this book, how to create a Docker image and how to run it.


Designing Application with Spring Boot 2 & React JS is divided into three parts. The first part introduces you to the essentials of the Spring Boot 2.2 Framework and you will learn how to create REST APIs and how to secure REST APIs. Part 2 steps behind the front end application development with React JS and discuss React features and its advantages toward the frontend application development. Part 3 expands on that by showing how to deploy backend and frontend application the PaaS platform and also will discuss how to deploy application container technologies such as Docker.

What will you learn

● Exploring Spring Boot 2.2 new features and essential key components such as Starters, Autoconfiguration, CLI, Actuator.
● Develop a REST application using Spring Boot 2.2 and DevTools.
● Exploring Spring Boot Auto Configuration and Customization.
● Creating application profiles based on the environments.

● Consuming REST APIs endpoints with RestTemplate, Traverson, and WebClient.
● Exploring JWT web token for the RESTful APIs and explores how to secure REST APIs using OAuth2 and Spring security.
● Creating TESTING module of the Spring Boot application and Unit & Integration testing.
● Discuss React JS and its components and also discuss React KS features and its advantages and disadvantage.
● Exploring how to create ReactJS components and how to manage ReactJS component lifecycle.
● Taking a quick overview of consuming the REST API using the React application.
● Deploying the application to the Cloud platform (PaaS).
● Containerization and Deploy using Docker containers

Who this book is for

For all Java developers who want to learn Spring Boot 2.2 and React JS as in the enterprise application.
