Web Applications

Many people struggle to differentiate between a web application (web app) and a website 

A website refers to a location that hosts a page or several pages that are often on a particular topic, e.g. a business or organisations products and services. A website is accessed via a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) online from any computer connected to the internet. Websites are typically made up of static pages with low interactivity.

A web app can exist on the internet or on local intranets. When available on the internet, a web app is often hosted as a separate page on a website. In comparison to a website, it is more difficult to build a web app as it is more resource intensive being made up of lots of dynamic pages with high interactivity. 

In order to build web apps it is essential to understand at least two or more of the following languages if you want to implement server-side scripts that process data:

  • Java
  • Javascript
  • Dynamic HTML
  • Silverlight
  • PHP
  • AJAX
