Java Development

What is JavaScript?

JavaScript is a text-based programming language, which allows the use of several dynamic features, including but not limited to creating updating content, controlling multimedia, & animating images. It is believed to be the most stable programming language, & can be employed on both the client-side & the server-side. That is why it can also help make web pages interactive. This programming language is based on Write Once, Run Anywhere (WORA) approach, & has been in use in the technical industry for about 20 years now.

According to a 2020 survey on the “Most used programming languages among developers worldwide,” JavaScript has been ranked as number one, with 67.7% users.


The Use of JavaScript

Despite being an optimal programming language for creating web applications & building web servers, the use of JavaScript is not limited to web development. Programmers can also use it to develop back-end infrastructure, create browser games, & build mobile enterprise applications directly & without error.

Among the programming features offered by JavaScript are storing useful values inside variables, running code in response to certain events occurring on the web page, & enabling operations on pieces of text, etc.


JavaScript for Web Development

JavaScript can be used to work on a number of devices & platforms. That is one of the reasons for its popularity as a programming language, widely used for web development. Other reasons that make it one of the most in-demand technical languages at present comprise of the following:

  •  JavaScript allows for both, standard & non-standard web development.
  • It is highly productive, as it has a comprehensive set of libraries, frameworks & strong community support.
  • It allows programmers to make web pages interactive.
  • It enables users optimal editing, debugging & packing tools. This language allows a support for multiple text editors & packaging tools, making web development quicker, smoother & much more dynamic.
  • Java offers multiple features that assist developers to build dynamic web pages. For example, showing &/or hiding more information at the click of a button, changing the color of a button by hovering the mouse over it, zooming in & zooming out on an image, displaying animations, & playing audio & video in a web page, etc.


The Importance of JavaScript

JavaScript has a number of features that make it extremely popular among programmers, which include but are not limited to the following:

  •  It provides a multitude of features to increase productivity because of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) built on top of the client-side JavaScript language.
  • JavaScript is fast & efficient to write an enterprise application, as it applies a variety of threads for management & processing many instruction sequences.
  • It is a programming language that can communicate with multiple other systems in the same application, like databases & mainframe back-ends among others.
  • Java has notable security reputation, as the latest version offers significant protection for an enterprise application.
  • It affords programmers high productivity through editing, completing & debugging of an application that is hassle-free because of its provision of rich language tools.
  • It makes web pages engaging for the user & significantly improves user experience by adding interactive behavior to web pages.
  • Java is a programming language highest in demand among developers, making it one of the most popular & the most used technical languages in the digital market.


The Process of Java Development

Java developers are typically responsible for roles like the writing of well-designed & testable code, the conducting of software analysis, & the programming, testing, editing & debugging of web applications. However, their responsibilities don’t end there. The list below offers an overview of the optimal methods employed to carry out Java development:

  • Understanding requirements
    Our team at Digicoms will initially gather all the requirements & preferences of their client, as we believe in the importance of the stakeholder’s opinion. Our Project Manager & Senior Java Developer will be involved in discussions aimed at ranking tasks according to priority, determining the overall scope of the work, & formulating strategies for the best course of action.
  •  Development
    Our Java Developers will then proceed to begin the process of completing the enterprise system, application or program by starting the writing of the code. This phase is completed in sections of code, which are known as a “feature”.
  • Testing & Amendment
    The next step is to test each feature for any amendments that are required, for any errors that must be edited & modified out. Our developers will promptly debug any feature that is completed, if need be.
  •  Deployment & Maintenance
    In spite of completing any editing needed in the previous phase for completely functional deployment, our developers will continue with the maintenance tasks; so as to keep tabs on any requirements posed in the testing environment. They will maintain active systems, & identify opportunities for efficacy within the current software platform, ensuring optimisation of the enterprise system, program or application.
