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 front end 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. A step-by-step guide to design and develop intuitive full-stack web applications.

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.
