Other Technologies and Frameworks we use on our Projects
There are several technologies and frameworks we use for our Projects, other than the included in the previous links. The following, doesn't represent an exhaustive list, however we included them since we do have experience and expertize implementing these.
Java is a programming language originally developed by Sun Microsystems (which has since merged into Oracle Corporation) and released in 1995 as a core component of Sun Microsystems' Java platform. The language derives much of its syntax from C and C++ but has a simpler object model and fewer low-level facilities. Java applications are typically compiled to bytecode (class file) that can run on any Java Virtual Machine (JVM) regardless of computer architecture. Java is a general-purpose, concurrent, class-based, object-oriented language that is specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "write once, run anywhere," meaning that code that runs on one platform does not need to be edited to run on another. Java is currently one of the most popular programming languages in use, particularly for client-server web applications, with a reported 10 million users.
One characteristic of Java is portability, which means that computer programs written in the Java language must run similarly on any hardware/operating-system platform.
Programs written in Java have a reputation for being slower and requiring more memory than those written in C. However, Java programs' execution speed improved significantly with the introduction of Just-in-time compilation for Java 1.1, the addition of language features supporting better code analysis, and optimizations in the Java Virtual Machine itself.
Some platforms offer direct hardware support for Java; there are microcontrollers that can run Java in hardware instead of a software JVM, and ARM based processors can have hardware support for executing Java bytecode.
Java applets are programs that are embedded in other applications, typically in a Web page displayed in a Web browser.
Java Servlet technology provides Web developers with a simple, consistent mechanism for extending the functionality of a Web server and for accessing existing business systems. Servlets are server-side Java EE components that generate responses (typically HTML pages) to requests (typically HTTP requests) from clients. A servlet can almost be thought of as an applet that runs on the server side—without a face.
JavaServer Pages (JSP) are server-side Java EE components that generate responses, typically HTML pages, to HTTP requests from clients. JSPs embed Java code in an HTML page by using the special delimiters <% and %>. A JSP is compiled to a Java servlet, a Java application in its own right, the first time it is accessed. After that, the generated servlet creates the response.
Google and Android have chosen to use Java as a key pillar in the creation of the Android operating system, an open-source smartphone operating system. Besides the fact that the operating system, built on the Linux 2.6 kernel, was written largely in Java, the Android SDK uses Java to design applications for the Android platform.
Java is designed to work in the distributed environment on the Internet. Java has a GUI features that provides you better "look and feel" over the C++ language, moreover it is easier to use than C++.
Java allows to play online games, video, audio, chat with people around the world, Banking Application, view 3D image and Shopping Cart. Java find its extensive use in the intranet applications and other e-business solutions that are the grassroots of corporate computing. Java , regarded as the most well described and planned language to develop an applications for the Web.
On the web aspect, Java is popular on web servers, used by many of the largest interactive websites. Java is used to create standalone applications which may run on a single computer or in distributed network. It is also be used to create a small application program based on applet, which is further used for Web page.
C++ (pronounced "cee plus plus") is a statically typed, free-form, multi-paradigm, compiled, general-purpose programming language. It is regarded as an intermediate-level language, as it comprises a combination of both high-level and low-level language features.
C++ is one of the most popular programming languages with application domains including systems software, application software, device drivers, embedded software, high-performance server and client applications, and entertainment software such as video games.
C++ is also used for hardware design, where the design is initially described in C++, then analyzed, architecturally constrained, and scheduled to create a register-transfer level hardware description language via high-level synthesis.
The language began as enhancements to C, first adding classes, then virtual functions, operator overloading, multiple inheritance, templates, and exception handling among other features.
