Software Development |
Interestingly the Java programming language was first named Oak, a reference to an Oak tree outside James Gosling’s (the creator of Java) office. DNA, SILK, and RUBY were some of the other names in consideration, but ultimately the name Java stuck and it has been empowering the industry to execute high-quality software development since the early 1990s.
Java Software Development technology today in 2022 is vital in enabling a wide variety of enterprise-grade and consumer-facing digital solutions. Being platform-independent and secure, Java forms the building blocks of more than 3 billion devices across Windows, Android and Mac OS platforms. An indispensable part of lives everywhere today, most web-based applications are a product of Java Software Development.
Java software development services offer full-cycle development right from, design to development and testing, deployment with clients, and maintenance post that. A good service provider creates future-ready, reliable, and robust solutions for its customers.
Java software development services are used by companies to build complex enterprise systems. Some examples include Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, Payment solutions, and Web portals to engage customers. Industries including Banking, E-Commerce, Electronics, Retail, and Government organizations partner with digital consulting companies for their software application needs. With operational expertise as a Java software development company for close to a decade now, Focaloid is trusted by globally renowned enterprises like IBM, Dell, Havas Worldwide, Deloitte, and General Motors.
Java Cloud Development
Cloud computing and services have taken the industry by storm over the last decade. Servers, operating systems, and storage are the basic underlying resources made accessible over a network. Organizations are rapidly switching their applications and data to cloud-based environments which offer higher scalability, better performance, and are most cost-effective overall. Public cloud services that can be accessed by everyone are offered by big tech players like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. On the other hand, private cloud services by third-party vendors work with businesses to provide tailor-made solutions. Oracle Java Cloud Service, AWS SDK for Java, and Google App Engine are the most popular Java Cloud development tools which enable deployment of java based applications. Docker, Kubernetes, and Jeniks are some of the technologies used in dev-ops for cloud deployment. To understand how Focaloid works with software teams to accelerate their cloud journey, click here.
Databases in Java-based systems
Java-Based enterprise systems use relational databases to manage their day-to-day business processes. This could range from a bank’s requirement to store, verify and manage their customer’s data for transactions, to an E-Commerce company building a database to store and access their vendors’ and users’ data for purchases and analytics. Oracle, which incidentally owns and develops Java, is the most common legacy database used across industries. Newer databases like PostgreSQL, MongoDB, and Cassandra No-SQL offer unique advantages and functionality for non-conventional use cases. Frameworks like Hibernate and Spring Data come equipped to be used on Java to create, manage and manipulate data across different types of databases.
Web Application Development
Mobile Application Development
Java is used in the creation of a vast range of smartphone applications, nowadays primarily for the android operating system, the largest of its kind. Digital assistants, entertainment games, and replication of traditional web applications to the smartphone world are some of the popular use cases. Focaloid recently worked with a major electronics brand to build a voice assistant application like Siri/Alexa for a smart tablet being marketed specifically for kids.
Java API Development
Java APIs enable the transfer of information between disparate applications. It is important that APIs are developed in a manner is that is secure, high in performance, and doesn’t take up unnecessary load. They are created and used mainly for application development within an organization, communication between two companies working together, or an individual developer using a public API. An example of a public API is the Twitter developer account, using which developers can access specific data to conduct analysis or integrate Twitter functionalities within other applications.
Best Practices in Java Software Development
Agile development is the go-to methodology when it comes to managing large-scale software development. It is based on an iterative approach, designed to execute the software lifecycle in tranches. This reduces risk and makes the entire process more efficient. Agile development mitigates time lost due to miscommunication by prioritizing cross-functional collaboration at all stages of the development cycle. Focaloid is well equipped to practise agile development, having successfully built complex solutions for its clients since 2013.
Monolithic software systems are a thing of the past, and not viable for complex enterprise requirements. Using a microservice architecture is considered the best practice today for building Java-based applications. Microservices offer increased scalability and flexibility for large-scale applications with a huge codebase. A microservices architecture breaks down an application into a set of smaller independent units with their own logic, codebase, and highly specific functionality. Read about how Focaloid helped a communications workflow software company upgrade its legacy monolithic systems to a high-performance microservices architecture.
