When looking for a back-end server API generator, you will need to implement a Java version. It can take long to implement the features and there might be alternative frameworks out there that just works better!

Your organization might need to develop apps for both the web or mobile. You will need to adopt Node.js and its MVC framework Sails.js.

Java, Node.js or .Net – Which one to opt for?

If you are looking for a scalable, secure and a well-supported development framework and runtime environment which could be useful in producing of large-scale scenarios, you cannot depend on Java alone. Instead, choose Node.js over Java and .Net. Here is why Node.js is the better choice.

  • Secure and your developers know it – With a reputation for being secure, easy to learn and scaling well, Node.js appeals to several tech communities. It is already being used in production by several well-known organizations.

Sails.js can help as it has Waterline ORM that helps to write a database adapter which can be connected to various systems. You also have a number of database adapters available in Sails.js community including MySQL AND Microsoft SQL Server allowing AnyPresence to use a single framework.

Best of all, the development process can be quicker than say when you’re using Java. This is because Sails.js makes it quite easy and quick to get stuff in use, using prototyping.
Changes can be viewed and tested easily and one can iterate rapidly.
