How Java Technologies & Frameworks Useful In Web Application Development?

Java Technologies

Web applications are a combination of distributed applications that need a network or server to communicate. PHP and ASP are the server-side scripts used to handle the storage and retrieval of the information. Whereas at the client-side scripts (JavaScript and HTML) to present information to users.

This web application development allows users to interact with the company using online forms, content management systems, shopping carts and more. It becomes handy for the enterprises to update and maintain without the need for software installation on the client computers. Additionally, the applications help employees to work remotely. Many companies are using this technology to create documents, share information, collaborate on projects, and work on common documents regardless of location or device. Moreover, one application could be used by millions of people. 

In contribution to this communication capability, Java technologies and frameworks are software libraries that are web-based providing the user interface, or “view-layer”, of Java web applications. Although, you can use these frameworks for defining web pages and managing the HTTP requests generated by those web pages.

The list of various Java technologies involved in web application development

The various Java technologies and its  involvement in web application development are described below: :

Java Enterprise Edition (JEE):

JEE, or also named as Java Enterprise Edition is an enterprise Java Web application framework established by Oracle The framework requires network and web services and hence furnishes large-scale, multi-tiered, scalable, reliable, and secure network applications.

Java Standard Edition (JSE)

Java Standard Edition is a way to develop stand-alone applications. The JSE framework is an ultimate platform that provides object-oriented, portable and robust application development.

JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL)

The JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL) is a combination of important JSP tags that encapsulates the core functionality common to many JSP applications.

JSTL consists of various structural and functional tags that support common, structural tasks of a web application.  

JavaServer Pages (JSP)

JSP has access to the entire family of Java APIs, including the JDBC API to access enterprise databases. These Java Server Pages are used to develop your web applications in simple and easy steps.

Java Servlet API

The Java Servlet runs on the server side without an application of its own as an HTML user interface (UI) or an application GUI. They are used to extend the applications hosted by the web servers. Several web applications are developed with Java Servlet extensions.

JavaServer Pages Technology

It gives a simple and fast way to create dynamic content. It facilitates the addition of snippets of servlet code into the text-based document. JSP contains static data expressed in text-based format namely HTML, Wireless Markup Language (WML) or XML; JSP technology elements determine the dynamic content construction by the page.

JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library

It has the iterator and conditional tags to handle flow control, tags for accessing databases with SQL, manipulate XML documents, internalization, and commonly used functions.

Java Message Service API

The mixture of Java technology with enterprise messaging, named as JMS API. It is a powerful tool used for solving enterprise computing problems.

JavaMail API and the JavaBeans Activation Framework

This framework is mainly used to send e-mail notifications. This framework of Java, named as  JavaBeans Activation Framework (JAF) API, which specifies the type of data, encapsulates the access and finds out the operations available.

Java API for XML Processing

Java API for XML Processing is specified for supporting the W3C schema. It is flexible and JAXP enables the use of any XML-compliant parser or the XSL processor within the application.

Java Naming and Directory Interface

Java Naming and Directory Interface functionality allows the applications to access several naming and directory services.
