Java web applications have come a long way since the days of servlets and Java Server Pages (JSPs). There are now many Java web frameworks for a developer to choose from, including Spring MVC, Java Server Faces, Struts, GWT, Play, and Grails. As with many other emerging technologies, an abundance of choices of web frameworks will lead to developer fatigue, the feeling of being overwhelmed by the need to keep up with the modern development world’s rapidly multiplying set of options. Interoperability tools like JNBridgePro are an ideal way to deal with many kinds of developer fatigue, particularly when the new technologies are based on Java or .NET. With JNBridgePro, you can learn a small piece of a new technology, while bridging back to other parts of your project, which use the old, familiar technology.
For example, let’s say that you’re a .NET developer maintaining an all-.NET web application using ASP.NET as the web framework. If you’re tasked with updating the application to use a modern Java web framework, you can simplify your task and avoid developer fatigue by reimplementing only the front end, while preserving the familiar .NET code in the back end.
