Kotlin / Javalin:
Kotlin is used because it is powerful in that it eliminates Java's verbose writing style and allows developers to focus on the business logic, while taking advantage of Java's rich library set.
As a lightweight framework, Javalin is also able to check all source code when a problem occurs, and to determine whether the problem is in the application or in the framework itself.

React / Recoil:
Javalin uses React because of its reusability through componentization and good visibility through separation of responsibilities.
In particular, the separation of business logic through the introduction of Hooks has produced an efficient division of responsibilities, and the company has adopted it because they believe it is suitable for this team.
