Enterprises Gear Up For HTML5 Supporting Java 7

The Java based community rejoiced as Oracle finally brought in the latest version of the Java Platform, the EE 7 (EE standing for Enterprise Edition), which endeavors to include support for HTML 5 applications, respond to the enterprise demands and augment the productivity of the developers. The Java EE 7 Software Development Kit (SDK) download of the latest edition is available on Oracle’s website.

The version focused on the enterprises is principally deployed on servers. The new features of EE 7 version include JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) which supports the relentless transferring of data and WebSocket communications, and both of them provide for developing HTML 5 based applications. During the Webcast introduction of the latest version Java EE 7, the vice president of development at Oracle, Mr. Cameron Purdy quite confidently said “This is the ultimate platform for building HTML 5 and mobile apps.”

Commenting on the latest features and future prospects of Java Software Development with the latest up gradation, Al Hilwa, an analyst with IDC observed

“Java EE 7 brings this widely used enterprise framework to the modern age of HTML5 and also brings significant improvement in developer productivity that will have windfalls in code quality. In this age of the polyglot programmer, Java EE 7 will allow Java to remain one of the most widely deployed technologies for server applications on the planet.”

Talking about the capabilities, Java 7 boasts of the 2.2 capabilities, along with complete markup support for HTML 5. Also, with smart capabilities for batch programming, the tasks requiring longer inputs of time and effort, such as the large enterprise scale applications, can be easily administered by a Java Development Company, and the concurrency utilities render higher throughput to the same.

As for the developers’ productivity, the latest version has introduced APIs which are much simpler to use, such as the Java Message service 2.0, and also the requirement for labyrinthine boilerplate codes is simplified by JMS API. Besides, both NetBeans IDE and Eclipse offer complete support for Java EE 7 tooling.

However, all of these features are going to leave Java developers who are expecting cloud capabilities, high and dry. As of now the cloud capabilities are deferred unless the subsequent release of EE 8. The silver lining in this case is the inclusion of resource definition metadata, which makes the future of introduction of cloud computing into Java, a bit more optimistic.

Some Basic Rules While Programming With Java

Java has its own features and advantages that are not easily possible with other languages. Xicom technologies offers some of the most capable Java developers to their international clients for successfully completing their Java software development projects. Xicom has been involved in Java programming and Java development since last 10 years.

Each and every minute detail is given equal attention at the software development centers of Xicom technology. The java development company , Xicom have advanced knowledge and experience of Java programming but they always stay rooted to the basics as mostly developers end up with fatal errors because they neglect the basic aspects of Java programming.

Some of the basic rules of Java programming are mentioned below:

  • If a class extends the other with a defined method then the method can be overridden and given the same name in the final list.
  • A method that is to be defined in the base class must stay visible. Failing to do so may even get the method treated like normal methods.
  • If the name of the methods and argument list are being used then the same must be used for overriding and overridden methods.
  • The exceptions for the definer class must be in the same or one of its sub-classes.

There are many more rules that must be followed but the mentioned points are some of the most essential and easily forgotten points.

Xicom has delivered numerous Java applications to its global clients who have always been more than appreciative of the services offered to them. Sticking to the basics and then working on the most advanced features is one of the many capabilities of Xicom.
