Framework or web application framework (WAF) is actually a software framework that is crafted to renovate and modify dynamic web pages, web applications, and other web services. A framework is designed to develop common activities performed in web development. In details, many frameworks provide libraries for database access, templates for building the structures and helps in content management, and they often provide code reuse facilities to customize product utilities.
It is a smarter integration with the web server to make web applications high-traffic conveying. We extend the web server executing codes and control dynamic contents by writing web programs in up-to-date utility languages as ColdFusion, PHP and Active Server Pages.
We facilitate dynamic page activities with specific libraries to help with common tasks for customized web applications. Consecutively, Framework software is formed with a huge collection of multiple libraries to facilitate programming and coding to enhance utilities. We implement these specific frameworks made to meet your specific requirements. Here are few examples like ASP.NET, JavaEE (Servlets), WebObjects, web2py, OpenACS, Catalyst, Yii, Mojolicious, Grails, Django, Zend Framework, CakePHP, Ruby-on-Rails and Symphony.
Web application frameworks are based on different utility pattern per requirements:
Frameworks follow the MVC architectural pattern to separate the data model with business rules from the user interface as it modularizes code, promotes code reuse, and allows multiple interfaces to be applied.
Push-based vs. pull-based
Some MVC frameworks follow a push-based architecture also called "action-based” to do the required processing, and then "push" the data to the view layer to render the results. Like Django, Ruby on Rails, Symfony, Yii, CodeIgniter.
Some MVC frameworks start with the view layer, which can then "pull" results from multiple controllers as needed with a single view. Lift, Tapestry, JBoss Seam, JavaServer Faces, (µ)Micro, and Wicket are examples of pull-based architectures.
In three-tier organization, applications are structured around three physical tiers: client, application, and database-RDBMS.
Frameworks are built to support the construction of internet applications based on a single programming language built to specific user application, such as Content Management systems, some mobile development tools and some portal tools.
Frameworks classified according to the nature of work:
General-purpose website frameworks
Discussion forums, wikis and weblogs
Example: JBoss Portal or eXo Platform.
I and my team always concentrate on different modifications of Frameworks made of latest programming languages and coding to make a complete web solution customized successfully. If required, we can even re-module one of our own.
It differ us from other developers that technically our commitment and devotion to client’s requirement is exceptional.
