Chapter 2. Digging into the Architecture

Now that we've seen the end result, let's take a look at how it is all put together. In this chapter, we will examine the WaveMaker application architecture. We will learn about the client, the server, how they are constructed, and some of the core features available to us in each. We'll examine the HTTP requests made to the server and examine the JSON request of a database read call. We'll also learn about typing in WaveMaker. We'll finish this chapter with a tour of the Studio WaveMaker application. By the end of this chapter, you will have learned about:

  • The client framework

  • The server architecture

  • Communications between client and server

  • Types

  • Application file structure
