Given a classic maven based Java EE app running on Websphere Liberty with Angular frontend, would it be feasible to port it to KMP? We started using Kotlin in the backend instead of Java. I would want to ditch the Angular frontend (it's old and made badly) and use React with Kotlin/JS. Primary benefit would be typesafe coupling between frontend and backend and using Kotlin for both (instead of TS yuck). Ideally I would want to use the backend as-is and keep the Gradle usage to a bare minimum because everything is maven based (company policy). Kind of a broad question I know, but if anyone has some experience/advice it's appreciated 👍

Just separate them into react frontend and kotlin backend KotlinMP react frontend + backend will be worse than whatever you have rn
