A custom web application can be social networking, interactive games, online banking, e-commerce, online trading and training, blogs, content management systems and others.
There are two categories of scripting, coding and programming when creating a custom web application.
- Server side scripting. This certain type of code is interpreted and executed by the web server. This kind of coding cannot be viewed or accessed by the general public or by any visitor that is unauthorized to do so. The following are some of the commonly used server side scripting technologies: PHP, ASP, Zend Framework, ASP.Net, Python, ColdFusion, Perl and Ruby in rails.
The program libraries are a set of collection of functions which are commonly used, classes or subroutines that provide an ease in developing and maintenance. This will allow developers to easily edit or add different functionalities to a framework or an application that is modular type.
Frameworks of web application
These are sets of library programs, tools and components which are organized in an architectural way. This system allows the developers to build and maintain the different complex web applications using and efficient and effective approach.
The web application framework is designed to streamline programming and in promoting code reuse. This is done by setting folder structure and organization, guidelines, libraries and documentation.
Benefits and advantages of web application frameworks
-In the web application frameworks, logic and program actions are separated from CSS, design files and HTML. This feature helps designers to be able to modify the interface in order to make changes in design without the assistance of a skilled programmer.
- The program builds are typically based on tools, module and libraries which allow programmers to simply share libraries and execute complex features and functions in an efficient at the same time fast manner.
- The web application framework allow the structure to produce best practice when it comes to coding by applying consistent standards in coding as well as logic. It also provides the other developers with the ability to familiarize with the complex coding in a short time.
