Web Application Architecture: Definitions, Types, and Components

Any Internet page can be accessed with just one touch or click. Interactions between various app parts, such as databases, servers, and browsers are usually hidden from view and maintained by the architecture of web applications.
So, let’s dive into the topic of web app architecture, its functionality, and its components.

An Introduction to MVC Architecture: A Web Developer’s Point of View

MVC, or Model View Controller
MVC Stands for Model View Controller and it’s software architecture design pattern. The main goal of this architecture is to separate functionality, logic, and the interface of an application to promote organized programming. It also allows multiple developers to work on the same project.
Let’s take a look at different components of MVC from a web developer’s point of view. Let’s take a look at some of the popular web frameworks that use MVC.

JEC: Working With jslets in Node.js

This article shows how to create web applications, a la JAVA, over Node.js by using the “JavaScript Enterprise Container" (JEC) specification and its default implementation: GlassCat application server.
Prerequisites
In order to follow this tutorial, you need to install a GlassCat server instance and deploy a basic JEC project.

Importance of Separating Static From Dynamic Content for Modern Web Apps

Over the past few years, storage has become significantly cheaper compared to computation power. You might wonder, what does this have to do with web apps? Well, if you consider using a single web server and a database server for a small three-tier web app, this might not matter much, but with scale, how you store and serve content has a direct impact on achieving the required performance with the least cost involved.
Let’s dive into the details to understand the importance of architecting a web application to store and serve content.

JavaScript Enterprise Container: From Java to Node.js

This article introduces the “JavaScript Enterprise Container” (JEC) project for both Java and JavaScript developers. It will show a flexible development environment for building enterprise applications and microservices over Node.js.
About JEC
JEC is an easy-to-use open source project that executes JavaScript code server-side to deploy web applications, such as microservices, RESTful APIs, CDN platforms, etc.

At Stackify, we understand the amount of effort that goes into creating great applications. That’s why we build tools for Application Performance Management (APM), log management, and a whole suite of application support tools (in one solution) to make your life easier and your apps better. But every developer knows that the foundation of an outstanding application is its architecture. In this overview, we’ll take a closer look at web application architecture, its importance for future growth, current trends, and best practices.

Thin Clients Are the Future

For many years now, the sweet spot of developer productivity and user experience was the fat client architecture. In this architecture, the information is accessed through isolated layers of apps. The first layer executes directly on the user’s computer, while the other layers execute on the server.
Most Web Apps Are Fat
Embraced for over a decade, the fat client architecture was a response to a problem that is mostly gone now.
