Backend Engineering

As a software development company, we design and develop web/mobile applications that help our clients to move forward towards their business goals. We follow an agile methodology to make development clear & transparent to our clients. Here are the backend technologies on which we work.


Groovy is a feature rich, agile and dynamic language for the Java Virtual Machine.

Groovy code is compiled to byte code that is executed by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). We choose Groovy as the SmartThings programming language for its simplicity and flexibility, as well as the performance and stability of the JVM.

Groovy is an object-oriented programming language for the Java platform. It is a dynamic language with features similar to those of Python, Ruby, Perl, and Smalltalk.

Flat learning curve

Concise, readable and expressive syntax, easy to learn for Java developers

Scripting and testing glue

Great for writing concise and maintainable tests, and for all your build and automation tasks

Smooth Java integration

Seamlessly and transparently integrates and interoperates with Java and any third-party libraries

Domain-Specific Languages

Flexible & malleable syntax, advanced integration & customization mechanisms, to integrate readable business rules in your applications

Vibrant and rich ecosystem

Web development, reactive applications, concurrency / asynchronous / parallelism library, test frameworks, build tools, code analysis, GUI building

Powerful features

Closures, builders, runtime & compile-time meta-programming, functional programming, type inference, and static compilation


Grails is an open source web application framework which uses the Groovy programming language. It is intended to be a high-productivity framework by following the “coding by convention” paradigm, providing a stand-alone development environment and hiding much of the configuration detail from the developer. Grails is a powerful web framework for the Java platform aimed at multiplying developers’ productivity thanks to a Convention-over-Configuration paradigm, sensible defaults and opinionated APIs. It integrates smoothly with the JVM, allowing you to be immediately productive whilst providing powerful features, including integrated ORM, Domain-Specific Languages, runtime and compile-time meta-programming and Asynchronous programming.

Flat learning curve

Convention-over-configuration, sensible defaults, opinionated APIs, and the Groovy language combine to make Grails easy to learn for Java developers.


Grails is built on top of Spring Boot and leverages Spring Boot’s time-saving features, such as Spring-powered dependency injection.


Apache Groovy is a language for the Java platform designed to enhance developer’s productivity. It is an optionally-typed and dynamic language but with static-typing and static compilation capabilities.


With the use of application profiles, including React and Angular, Grails allows developers to build REST APIs or modern web applications with a JavaScript frontend.


Developers can build plugins that extend and enhance Grails, or they can access existing plugins published by a vibrant plugin community.


Grails relies on expressive domain-specific languages (DSLs) for validation, querying, markup rendering, and more.


It is a Spring module which provides RAD (Rapid Application Development) feature to Spring frame.
Spring Boot is a brand new framework from the team at Pivotal, designed to simplify the bootstrapping and development of a new Spring application. The framework takes an opinionated approach to configuration, freeing developers from the need to define boilerplate configuration. In that, Boot aims to be a front-runner in the ever-expanding rapid application development space.

Spring Boot Benefits :

  • Create stand-alone spring applications.
  • Embeded Tomcat, Jetty or Undertow directly
  • Automatically configure Spring Based applications with Java or Groovy
  • Reduces development time and increases productivity.
