Where Does Middleware Stand in Web Development?
The main focus of middleware is to provide services out of reach from the operating system. Learn where it stands in Web Development!
Before we go ahead with the topic, the readers must have some prior knowledge about web development and Middleware. As observed by its name, Web development is a field of computer science. The developers are responsible for developing websites, whether they are for the internet, intranet, single-page website, blog sites, or complete social media platforms. Middleware acts as a glow-in as it provides the path between the front end and back end of a computer or android based application. The main focus of Middleware is to provide those services which are out of reach from the operating system. This can be demonstrated from a simple example that Middleware is such an architect that is not available on windows or an android based devices. Still, the developer needs that specific part to complete their development, so Middleware comes into play and provides something to them. It acts as an unsung hero in web development.
The Relationship Between Middleware and Web Development
In web development, Middleware lies between the applications and the operating system. As to the previous discussion, it becomes very obvious that the role of Middleware is very important in web development. While it only acts as a hidden layer, which means the user and even the developer can’t see it, if we remove this hidden layer, the user will not be able to run the application. The developer will be unable to develop something like that. Middleware provides communication between the inputs and outputs while the developer can work on developing the website. For a better understanding, below is a figure which can help to improve the concept.
