    360 degrees to Product Engineering with Java

    Product Engineering with Java - Cygnet Infotech

    Problem Statement:

    Today, we have thousands of software products, but not all can withstand the market due to the issues like security, robustness and scalability. Missing on the critical ability of feature extension and third party software integration can deplete the value of the product. So, which technology should be embraced by Product Evangelist to address these technicalities?

    According to TIOBE Programming Community, 16.38% users prefer Java over other programming languages when it comes to building a new software product that should be highly secure. So why only Java?

    Java is considered to be the most preferred language because it is robust, scalable and comprehensive and can be implemented easily as it is open source and pocket-friendly with no royalty or licensing fees. This will indeed reduce the total cost of ownership when compared to other technology stack, making it licensing free from development to deployment.

    First thing first, as framework is an abstraction tool it makes life easier for developers to develop software products as the same code can be reused. Let us try to understand how Java outsmarts other technology platforms?

    So…which are the frameworks that provide 360 degrees to Product Engineering?

    Spring MVC, Hibernate, Angular JS and RESTful Web Services frameworks provide solid foundation and helps enhance features.

    Cygnet Infotech offers high ended software product engineering services in Java with the combination of Spring, Hibernate, Angular JS and RESTful Web Service making it easier to integrate your product with third party software. Like everything else, when it comes to its use, a full-featured framework should be considered. Let’s have a look on why Cygnet gives more importance to these frameworks.

    Spring MVC is a part of a huge Spring framework stack containing other Spring modules. Spring MVC framework provides Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture which can be used to develop loosely coupled and flexible software products. The Spring MVC framework helps in separating the business logic, UI logic and the input logic.

    We use Spring MVC because of the clear benefits like Clear Separation of Roles where Model, Controller, form object, command object each role can be extended by a specialized object. Powerful and Straightforward Configuration of Spring MVC and the application API as JavaBeans can be easily done. Reusable Business Code where the developer can use the existing business objects as command or form objects to extend a particular framework base class.

    By integrating Hibernate with Spring MVC framework we can take the benefit of Dependency Injection in which the configuration and code is separate and testing can be performed on mocked objects. The transactions could be easily managed and the development of the software product could be done at a greater pace.

    Hibernate is an efficient Object/Relational Mapping Tool for the Java programming language. It not only takes care of mapping from Java classes to database tables but also takes care of data queries and its retrieval. Hibernate also provides data query and its retrieval facilities and also generates SQL calls which relieves the developer from manually handling of the object conversion.

    By adopting Hibernate framework, the productivity, performance and maintenance can be improved. Hibernate generates high-level object oriented API which offers less amount of Java code to be written. With the integration of Hibernate framework, the portability has improved and being an ORM framework, it generates database specific SQL.

    It is easy to get started with Spring MVC, Hibernate and Angular JS although deep knowledge is required to create a software product which Cygnet is already equipped with.

    Angular JS is a very powerful JavaScript Framework which extends HTML DOM with additional attributes and helps the users to make the software product more responsive. Cygnet has adopted Angular JS because of various characteristics Two-way Data Binding which keeps the Model and View in sync all the time. Any changes done to the View will automatically update the Model and any changes done to the Model will automatically update the View. Filters and Directives where filters provide the flexibility of transforming the data before it is processed by the directive and displayed in the View whereas the developer can control the behavior of DOM elements using directives.

    Representational State Transfer or RESTful Web Service is an architectural style for designing loosely coupled web services and develop lightweight, fast, scalable and easy to maintain web services. REST is used when one wants to develop a highly secure and complex API, which supports different protocols. RESTful Web Services work even better when one has to develop lightweight APIs with great performance.

    Spring MVC + Hibernate + Angular JS + RESTful Web Service = Perfect Combination of Frameworks for Product Engineering in Java

    Cygnet Infotech can help you to transform your legacy software product created in Struts or JSF framework into robust and scalable product using the combination of Spring, Hibernate, Angular JS and RESTful Web Service. We will help you from the concept to completion using our Product Engineering Services.
