10 Top Web Development Frameworks In 2017

See the original posting on DZone Python

As the web matures and the versatility of online space rapidly grows, the way of building feature-rich applications gets considerably more complicated. Nowadays it’s not that easy to satisfy customers with a basic online presence as everyone wants to see you updated as per the latest technological trends. However, the burden can be reduced largely if your developers are well-versed with the latest web development frameworks.

As there is a huge number of web development frameworks currently available, it can be a daunting task for you to choose the right one for your next web development project. Here in this post, we are going to discuss the top web development frameworks so that you can get quality work in less time and with lower costs.

Insights From an Open-Source Survey

See the original posting on DZone Python

A few weeks ago, we wrapped up a small survey on open-source software. The survey was focused on OSS and Node.js usage and turned up some interesting results.

I’ve collected some of the most unexpected and most interesting data from the survey and, with the help of the NodeSource team, pulled them into some pretty awesome charts to discuss the data and some of the ideas we can form from them.

The HTTP Series (Part 2): Architectural Aspects

See the original posting on DZone Python

In the first article of the series, we talked about the basic concepts of HTTP. Now that we have a foundation to build upon, we can talk about some of the architectural aspects of HTTP. There is more to HTTP than just sending and receiving data.

HTTP cannot function by itself as an application protocol. It needs infrastructure in the form of hardware and software solutions that provide different services and make communication over the World Wide Web possible and efficient.

What False Sharing Is and How JVM Prevents It

See the original posting on DZone Python

Most developers who deal with web development don’t think how their programs behave on the low-level with hardware specific stuff. Today we will take a look. Half a year ago, I surfed the insides of JDK and found some curious things. I will discuss them in more detail further on (as you guessed, it’s related to the subject of this article).

Code which Java developers produce lives in a multiprocessor environment. CPUs use cache for reducing the cost to access data from the main memory (aka L2/L3). This well-known schema is illustrated in the picture below:

How to Start Contributing to Node.js

See the original posting on DZone Python

Getting into an open-source project can seem a bit overwhelming. Whether you’re entirely new to open-source or not sure where your interests and skills could be helpful, it can be a hefty investment just to go and learn about a project before even thinking about contributing.

Node.js is a pretty massive project, with a lot of hidden areas that may not be immediately obvious to someone trying to get involved.

Real-World Angular Series, Part 5b: Animation and Template-Driven Forms

Angular: RSVP With Template-Driven Form

Now let’s move on to our RSVP form. This form should handle users adding or updating RSVPs. It will be a child of our RSVP component. We’ll use a template-driven form.

JavaScript Callback Hell: Solved

See the original posting on DZone Python

If you use Node.js, or some other similar technology based upon some react-to-events paradigm, you are almost certainly paying a TAX over your development, the so-called Callback Hell. Today we will look at how to solve Javascript Callback Hell. 

Specifically, it’s a TAX you pay every time you want to separate concerns and give some extra layer of indirection, such as when you apply some basic DDD layering. DAOs, Domain Services, Infrastructure Services, and stuff like that.

Best Tool to Use for JS Applications: Angular JS, React JS, Node JS

See the original posting on DZone Python

The JavaScript war is at an all-time high. Developers across JavaScript land are debating on the best tool to use for JavaScript applications. Nowadays developers still battle to choose their favorite between AngularJS and ReactJS. We’ll look at the similarities between these two frameworks and NodeJS.

In this article, we’ll explore similarities and differences of these three tools and how useful are they for JS development.

Why Developers Should Care About CMS

See the original posting on DZone Python

As developers, we’ve got a strong handle on how to manage and deploy our code assets. Yet every one of us, at some point in our application build has said, “What about this text? What about these images? Where do these belong?” That’s pretty universal. Nearly every single application today has content in it. Be it a web app or a native app; it’s full of strings, images, icons, media, and other classes of content.

This content doesn’t really belong in our code base — because it’s not code. These non-code assets make us as developers pretty uneasy. We know that at some point a business user is going to ask us to make a change to one of those strings and we’re going to spend hours of build and deploy cycles to handle a 30-second code change. We know that at some point we’re going to need to translate that content. We know at some point we’re going to replace this UI with another one. We know all these things  — and we know leaving that content, even if it’s abstracted into a string table or a resource bundle, is going to come back to haunt us; no matter the abstraction: it’s part of the build, developers need to update it. Developers and systems folks need to deploy it.  

OpenTracing JAX-RS Instrumentation

See the original posting on DZone Python

In the previous demo, we demonstrated how to instrument a Spring Boot app using OpenTracing, a vendor-neutral standard for distributed tracing. In this article, we are going to instrument a Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS), and show you how to trace the business layer and add custom data to the trace.

Demo Application

Creating a JAX-RS app from scratch can be a time-consuming task, therefore, in this case, we are going to use Wildfly Swarm’s app generator. Select JAX-RS and CDI dependencies and hit the generate button.

JMiddleWay for Web Applications

See the original posting on DZone Python

The Why

My intention is to provide a middleware framework which can be used to add REST APIs without worrying about involving several technologies and their various versions.  The user can define the architecture with JMiddleWay as the middleman between its UI and back-end services. You can choose the UI and back-end technologies of your choice and add the necessary code to JMiddleWay to integrate with your architecture.

The What

The best way to get to know the technology is to build a prototype with it. And that’s exactly what I did and what I will present in this post. JMiddleWay lets you create your own middleware quickly and add required REST APIs easily. You can plug in your authentication module and configure how and where your middleware should log. Though fairly simple, the example highlights the most common annotations you’ll need to build your own REST API.

On Helping IBM Offer Support for Node.js

See the original posting on DZone Python

Rocket Software has been working with IBM for more than 25 years, so when IBM announced plans to offer Node.js support for IBM i, the Rocket team immediately began rewriting our ALM Ops Portal application to transform it into a Node.js application. I wouldn’t be surprised if Rocket was the first company to do that – but we definitely won’t be the last!

XMLSERVICE is a service that runs on IBM i, and it allows users to run both SQL queries and native commands and programs. Users activate XMLSERVICE by sending it an XML document describing the command, program, or SQL query they wish to run. The results are returned in an XML document and can be invoked either through DB2 stored procedures or a REST interface.

Writing and Testing Custom Angular Validators: The ‘Passwords Matching’ Use Case

See the original posting on DZone Python

Imagine you are implementing a subscription form and you ask the user to type a password… and then to re-type it just to make sure. You may want to give the user some feedback if he typed a different password the second time, right?

One way of resolving that is to write a custom validator.

Introduction to D3.js

See the original posting on DZone Python

D3.js is a JavaScript library used to render amazing charts based on data. It can be used to visualize stats and find patterns, show the comparison between two or more time-series data, draw the data in real-time as it happens (for example, data generated by various sensors or internet traffic), and even create cool dynamic art on web pages. How you use this library just depends on one’s imagination. To view a huge catalog of charts drawn by this library one can visit the official website of D3.js.

D3 is not a pre-built library composed of particular charts; instead, it’s a tool that can be used to create various charts — any chart you can envision). It uses SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) to draw the charts along with HTML and CSS. With D3 a dataset of tens of thousands of objects can be represented graphically easily. If you design your custom chart and you want to use a module in other charts then you can also create a module to reuse in other projects.
