     10 Essential Tools for Java Developers | Web Development

    JavaScript is one of the most popular international programming languages effectively used for a web page, application development and for database and server management. To enhance JavaScript application development, an ecosystem of libraries and framework has emerged around it offering the ability of code reduction to event management to data rendering.

    Below we will discuss 10 essential tools for Java Developers that will help in the development of browser-based web apps.

    Here is list of required tools for java developers


    • Angular
    • Backbone.js
    • Aurelia
    • Ember.js
    • JQuery
    • Ext.JS
    • Polymer
    • Meteor
    • React
    • Vue.js




    Angular also known as Angular JS is a single framework developed by Google for both desktop and mobile web application. Angular aims at creating progressive web apps by offering dependency injection that helps in data service assembly for applications while an HTML template is useful for composing templates. It is very simple for developers to download Angular from the Angular project quick start page.

    Angular by itself has a powerful ecosystem that includes four data libraries and support in IDEs. An Angular 6 version is due in a few months focusing on the same lines as the earlier versions ie small in size and easy to use with a good performance.




    Backbone or Backbone.js helps in structuring heavy application of JavaScript. The development or production version of Backbone.js can be downloaded from Backbone project website. In Backbone.js the data is represented as models that can be easily created, destroyed, validated and saved to the server. A RESTful JSON interface is used to connect models to applications. If a UI action allows a model attribute to change, it will result in an automatic change of event. The changes of the models are notified to help them to re-render themselves.




    Aurelia made with composed modules is backed by Blue Spire developer for desktop, mobile and web applications. This tool offers fast rendering with a great memory. Aurelia can be downloaded from GitHub. By integrating web components Aurelia allows a two way binding for objects. These modules are used for dependency injection, metadata, templating, binding as well as routing.




    Ember.js is a framework that lays emphasis on ‘out of the box’ productivity. It has integrated features like templates often called handlebars that help to reduce code writing and have the ability to update themselves with a change in data. Other features include API that focuses on easy development. This app can be made special by using common idioms. Ember.js can be installed via NPM. Ember.js 3.0 will be released in February 2018 where an add-on will support API and line that had been deprecated during Ember.js 2.




    The jQuery Script features API functions like event handling, animation and manipulating of the HTML document. Besides this, jQuery is being used with Angular and React App building tools too. This software was first of all developed in 2006 under JS Foundation. One can download the jQuery software from the jQuery project website. Every year the jQuery team comes up with two releases with another version due in mid 2018. The new features expected are tracking regression, new module design and support for new native options.




    As compared to other JavaScript frameworks Ext.JS is a commercial product rather than being tion.open source. Sencha’s ExtJS page will allow you to download this software effectively. Ext JS is used for making data intensive, enterprise oriented and cross platform web apps for multiple uses. Several components like calendars and data grid are offered by Ext.JS. Tools like Sencha Themer is used for styling apps while Sencha Architect is used for drag and drop HTML5 app development. There has been a lot of contemplation regarding the inclusion of ECMAScript and NPM package manager but due to the acquisition of Sencha by Idera the prospective release of Ext.JS that was planned for early 2018 has been put on hold.




    Polymer is included in Google’s JavaScript library to allow developers to use web components in such a way as to interoperate reusable custom elements with the built in elements of browser. Polymer can be installed from the Browser package manager. Polymer 2.0 released in mid 2017 had features like improved interoperability for DOM manipulation by eliminating the use of Polymer.dom. Other features of Polymer are data system improvements, simple array handling and ECMA Script with standard custom elements.




    Meteor is another JavaScript framework helping in faster app development for web, mobile or desktop with less code. This software can be downloaded from the Meteor Project site. Meteor also known as Meteor.js includes making client reactive apps, tools and packages from JavaScript community and Node.js. The server sends data not through HTML but through the wire and clients rendering it. The next release of Meteor 1.6 is scheduled with upgraded Node.js with advanced ECMAScript features to enhance performance.




    React is Facebook’s component based framework for making UIs and offering declarative views. It does not support controllers or models. This software can be downloaded from React project site. JSX syntax combined with React allows HTML and JavaScript to work as a single component. The new version React 16 was released recently with upgraded features using asynchronous rendering when processing huge components.




    Vue.js competes with React claiming quicker rendering. It can be downloaded from Vue.js project site where the core library focuses on view layer while the framework is totally adoptable. Its features include declarative rendering using template syntax to provide data to the DOM. The component system of Vue.js is concept development for large scale applications comprised of reusable and self contained modules. The new version of Vue.js with better Typescript integration is expected to arrive in late 2017.
