Web application development refers to development of a portion of software which can be accessed and run actively on the internet browser. Developing a website is quite complex and it needs special expertise to meet the demand. The website development process can be divided into 3 parts.
Web application programming: Web programming requires thorough knowledge of various programming languages and database frameworks. The coding will be done to implement information in a web browser, as the user wants it to be. The process of web programming can further be divided into 5 steps.
Planning: The entire process must be planned in terms of technology, human resource, finance, time, etc.
Target audience: After planning, you must know your target audience and their needs.
Software architecture designing: Before starting code development, you must create an architecture design. Software architecture refers to a set of structures which comprises of software elements and relationship among them.
Programming: While programming for websites certain points must be kept in mind,the logic must be simple because it helps the user to reuse the code and modify easily.
Testing: Once programming is done, testing phase must be carried out. There are various types which include black box, interface testing, security testing, etc., to ensure that the code is free from errors.
Website deployment and maintenance service: After successfully completing the above steps, its time to deploy your website on server to make it alive on world wide web. After launching the application on website, it needs website maintenance service to ensure that server and applications are performing desired tasks faultlessly and also to check that it does not take too much time to load.
