What Is Java Web Development and How Is It Used?
Java web applications use distributed computing that run on many computers over a network. This method helps enterprises to update and maintain their application network and servers. It eliminates the need for software installation on client computers. Java usage in creating web applications is extensive. Current web development in Java mostly uses servlets behind the scenes.
Generally, Java apps consist of two containers: the web container and the Java Enterprise Edition (EE) container. Web containers support the execution of Java servlets and JavaServer Pages. Java EE containers support additional functionality. For example, developers use Java EE containers for load balancing and performance improvements.
Most current Java product delivery frameworks use servlets. Commonly used Java frameworks that utilize servlets include GWT, JavaServer Faces, Struts, and the Spring framework.
The following are general technologies JavaPipe currently utilizes:
- Java Enterprise Edition (EE). Java EE is the standard in community-driven enterprise software. Java EE is in ongoing development that uses the Java Community Process (JCP) program. JCP includes contributions from many sources. These include industry experts, commercial and open source organizations, Java User Groups, and countless individuals.
- Spring Framework. The Spring Framework is an application framework and dependency injection (DI) container for Java. Any Java app can use the framework’s core features. There are extensions for running Java web apps (servlets) on top of the Java EE platform.
- Spring Security – Spring Security is a powerful authentication and access-control framework. It is highly configurable and is the de-facto standard for securing Spring-based applications. The real power of Spring Security is the ease of extending it to meet custom requirements.
- Spring MVC. The Spring Web Model-View-Controller (MVC) provides architecture and components for developing flexible, lightly-coupled Java web applications. MVC separates different aspects of web app logic (input, business, and UI). The “Model” encapsulates Java web application data. The “View” renders the model data, generating HTML output interpreted by your browser. The “Controller” processes user requests.
- Spring Boot. JavaPipe uses the Spring Boot application framework and DI container for Java. Any Java web app can use its core features.
- Microservices Architecture. Microservices is a software development technique used by our Agile integrators. As a collection of services, they are highly maintainable and testable. Microservices are loosely coupled, and independently deployable. JavaPipe utilizes microservices to organize around your business capabilities.
- RESTful Web Services. RESTful web services work best on the web. Representational State Transfer (REST) is an architecture that specifies constraints. Example: a uniform interface applied to a web service, inducing desirable outcomes. These include performance, scalability, and adaptability. These types of constraints enable services to work best on the web.
- Responsive Web Design (HTML/CSS/Bootstrap). Responsive Web Design uses HTML and CSS to resize website content dynamically. Responsive designs render well on all devices (desktops, tablets, and phones).
JavaPipe is always searching for the newest and most secure Java web frameworks and designs.
The Java programming language is an exceptional language for all types of development. It is well suited for developing web, desktop, mobile, and cloud-based solutions. The main reason to build your company’s web application in Java is security. Java provides the best security over other development languages.
At JavaPipe, our software development and delivery processes are very progressive. We use the Lean-Agile methodology, adapted from the Toyota Production System. Agile emphasizes interaction among individuals over processes and tools. Increased interaction between technical and business groups produces new ideas and innovative approaches. Superior quality is the ultimate result.
Agile development continues to lead projects in business communities across the globe. Agile eliminates lengthy waterfall project timelines in Java web applications development.
Scrum, another Agile development methodology, utilizes Sprints. Aptly named, sprints are time-boxed iterations and form the basis of Scrum. Sprints usually last 2-4 weeks. During this time, the Java development team completes a previously-planned amount of work. The team delivers their completed work at the end of the sprint.
No one can improve or develop Java applications without gathering all the business requirements first. Our Agile processes transform business requirements into user stories. User stories comprise the Product Backlog.
Before any sprint begins, the development team refines and estimates the work in the product backlog. Attendees of Backlog Refinement meetings review the backlog of user stories. They determine essential tasks and begin evaluating using one of many Agile estimation methods. The team includes user stories considered ready in an upcoming sprint. Stakeholders expect the team to complete committed work in a sprint within the time-boxed, 2 to 4-week period. JavaPipe sprints typically follow this pattern:
- Requirements gathering
- Sprint backlog
- Production backlog
- User stories
- Sprint (avg. 2-4 weeks)
- Release to production
- Process definition
Daily Scrum meetings or “Standups” keep the cooperation and project speed (velocity) moving. These 10-minute daily meetings keep sprints on track and foster communication.
A JavaPipe Sprint
Each JavaPipe sprint consists of the following steps:
- Requirements. Requirements are must-haves for business units and end users when developing software. For example, the Finance department needs adequate database security for a Java web application. The business need is protecting financial information from predators and hackers. The sales department requires that customers can order via mobile phone. The inventory unit needs to maintain a total of items and dates of inventory depletion. Requirements become user stories for our Java developers. Developers ensure they are coding to the requirements specified in user stories.
- User stories. User Stories contain business requirements for the new web application or development effort. User stories should state: As a [role title] I need [action to performed] so that I can [result]. Our talented and highly experienced Java web developers take it from there. We build lean, efficient web applications for optimal efficiency and security.
- Sprint Backlog. A sprint backlog is the backlog of work/user stories the team commits to completing by the end of a sprint.
- Testing. Various types of testing proceeds for the new web application, function, or website. One test is to follow all the steps an end user must use to determine usability. Is the UI user-friendly and intuitive, or cumbersome to use? Another method is to test whether the security is working, robust, and legally compliant. Functional testing adopts the persona of an untrained user. The tester tries to break the process or web application.
- Demos. After completing testing, the team conducts a “demo.” The demo is a demonstration of a user story’s functions. The team conducts its demos for the stakeholders with the development team present. This enables everyone to brainstorm further and confirm all sprint work is complete.
- Release to production. The team can release to production after completing development, testing, and stakeholder sign-off. The product increment is now ready to release to production with training for the end users.
The team completes design, development, and testing for each user story solution within a Sprint. The team returns incomplete user stories to the product backlog at sprint’s end. Unfinished user stories get scheduled for a future sprint. Sprints are 2-4 weeks and are not extended another day or week. This is non-negotiable. By sticking to its deadlines sprint after sprint, JavaPipe guarantees continuous improvement. Our velocity increases after each sprint, as Agile intended.
During each sprint, JavaPipe completes each of the following software development tasks:
- Web Application Architecture and Design. JavaPipe designs precision solutions. We will provide you with dynamic, stable solutions.
- Our use of Microservices (creating loosely-coupled components and services) offers superior results. These web application segments are lightweight and autonomous, with no knowledge of each other. This specific method is adaptable and simplifies consistent delivery and administration.
- Development. We write our source code using state-of-the-art coding and Java programming language practices. Our coding philosophy includes Object-Oriented Programming best practices as well. This modularized approach is cost-effective, allowing source code reuse where required.
- Code Quality. We ensure that our work aligns with each of your requirements and is free of defects. Our comprehensive testing includes the following, ensuring all functionality adheres to your needs:
- Unit testing
- Interface/UI/browser compatibility testing
- Integration testing
- Regression testing
- Performance and Load testing
- Security testing
- Acceptance testing
Frequently, web applications and end-user processes need revising for compliance reasons (legal and business). Documenting these workflows, processes, and procedures is vital. The resulting documentation is often also quite useful for training end users. Our team will assist you in documenting your workflows and end-user processes.
At the end of every project, we deliver the following to our clients:
- Working software
- Documented requirements (i.e., user stories)
