Let’s hit this now! We’ve been talking a lot about Android Development. But what happens behind the scenes of a frontend and backend Android Development is what I am going to take you through today. The front-end as we know it is the interface of an android application and backend are the nuts and bolts that keep the interface uptight and running. So let me quickly take you through what goes into the front-end and back-end development of an android application.
A native mobile app is developed for a particular mobile platform like Android or iOS and is written in a supported by the operating system. It offers the best user experience since a native app can fully leverage a device’s hardware and functionality.Android developers employ different tools to create their apps. The programming language primarily behind all of this is Java. Additionally, Android app developers must know how to use XML. It is a markup language, to set up the layout of the apps. Out of the many IDEs for Android development Eclipse is one of the most commonly used ones.
The backend is where you find the implementation of business logic and data handling. Not to mention it also involves the integration with 3rd party systems. When your front end is ready, it likely needs information to be displayed in a certain form. This information is housed by the back end, on a server that hosts user data. Different technologies may be used to create a server that communicates efficiently with the front end. Some of these platforms include LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP),.Net, Java, Ruby, Python, etc.
How to make them go hand-in-hand?
In order to get your product to market on time, one should run the front end design process in conjunction with the back-end development process. This allows fast-paced design iteration without having to rewrite any code and avoid last minute hiccups.
For delivering the best customer experience, the front end needs to work in unison with the back end. This surely becomes possible and effective when they’re built in parallel. Conjunction is the key and now you know!
