In the tutorial we are going to learn about frontend and backend development.

Frontend Web Development

The part of the website that user interacts with directly is termed as front end. It is also referred to, as the client side of the application. It includes everything that user experiences directly i.e. text, colours, images, graphs, graphics, tables, buttons, text fields and navigation menus.

HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT are the languages used for front end development.

The structure, design, behavior, content and context of everything seen on a web browser screen when websites are rendered is developed and implemented by the frontend developers.

Backend Web Development

Backend is the server side of the website where it stores and manages data and also makes sure that everything is working fine on the client side. It is the part of the website which user cannot interact with.

Development activities like creating API’s, libraries and working with system components without user interfaces or even creating systems of scientific programming are also included in the backend development.

Java ecosystem has several frameworks for web application development like Spring, Struts, Hibernate, Javaserver faces, Grails etc.

Among them Spring is a powerful, lightweight, and most popular framework which makes Java quicker, easier, and safer to use.

This framework is very popular among developers for its speed, simplicity, and productivity which helps to create enterprise-level web applications with complete ease. Spring MVC and Spring Boot made Java modern, reactive, and cloud-ready to build high-performance complex web applications hence used by many tech-giants, including Netflix, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, etc.
