JavaScript in the Enterprise

July 13th, 2015 | By Fernando Martins | 1 min read

Paul Krill explains how JavaScript and Node.js will lead a shift in enterprise development with a quick guide about JavaScript application development for businesses and its advantages.

The editor at Large, InfoWorld, argues that JavaScript libraries and frameworks will change enterprise development workflow as we know it today. 

In this blog article, we will delve into the process of developing JavaScript in enterprise ecosystem applications and their advantages for businesses.

The popularity of JavaScript

There is no doubt that server-side JavaScript is becoming widely popular as more and more companies adopt Node.js as the core of their stack.

Considering the growth of Node.js as a popular JavaScript runtime environment to create server-side applications, consider protecting your Node.js source code with the most advanced polymorphic obfuscation techniques.

JavaScript's Advantages and Benefits

Its lightweight, robustness, and parallel nature are why companies are moving away from Java, .NET, and other major languages and frameworks.

It also grants the possibility of fast prototyping. It makes it easy to integrate hundreds of third-party packages that solve problems that most applications face, saving tons of time that could be spent focusing more on the actual product.

Another benefit of using JavaScript on the server side is that Full-stack Engineers don’t have to constantly change contexts between client and server-side code. The language is the same on both, which improves productivity and saves several headaches in the long run.

Less code to switch and convert data around means fewer bugs.

Types of JavaScript Applications

JavaScript is a web development language that operates within web browsers and has two different types of applications:

  1. Hybrid-Based Applications

  2. Native-Based Applications

Hybrid-Based Applications

One of the JavaScript application's essential components is its integration with web browsers.

WebView mode is the foundation of these applications and refers to a navigational interface that keeps users within the existing program instead of opening a new browser tab.

Native-Based Applications

As the name indicates, native-based applications are developed especially for a particular operating system. Their advantages include (1) being faster than web apps or (2) working without an internet connection.

It is possible to use several JavaScript application development frameworks, libraries, and runtime environments, such as React.JS and Node.JS, to create great features.

Jscrambler for JavaScript in the Enterprise

At Jscrambler, we have been switching from a PHP backend to Node.js, and the productivity boost and overall code quality improvement are undeniable.

We doubt we can ever go back to using two different languages for the server and client sides.
