Configuring JS frontend depending on how the app was deployed

I have a Java+React web application. There are two options of how to deploy it:

  1. You launch backend with Spring Boot and React with Node.js separately.
  2. You build a .ear with bundle.js building with frontend-maven-plugin and then deploy it on an app server.

The thing is that in the first case Spring Boot launches, for example, on localhost:8080 and Node.js on localhost:8081, they need different ports. And in the second case everything is in the same place and with completely different address. For the second case, when I make requests from frontend to backend I can just skip domain name and write a path. But in the first case I have to specify domain name since backend has different domain name.

My question is how to solve this problem and make frontend understand how the app was deployed. I can think of something like passing an argument with node.js command or something, but not sure if that is a correct and neat way of doing that.

I can provide the code if needed.

  1. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  2. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    was deployed – JavaScript Help is a little vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post headlines to grab viewers to click.
