Building A React Application With Java EE Backend

In this screencast I created Java EE 7 application with installed CORS filter and exposed a String array as JSON.

Finally, I created a react application in ES2015 and used plain, old XMLHttpRequest to access the backend service. The output was rendered as HTML list.

Is React library not enough? Checkout the screencast: Building An Angular 2 Application With Java EE 7 Backend

Hello Adam,

very interesting video. My question is how do you deploy such application? Do you have a WAR with react js application in WEB-INF or do you run it as separate module like in this video using node js?

Will you be making this available on GitHub?
