Building Single Page Web Applications with Backbone.js, JaxRS, MongoDB, and OpenShift


Backbone.js is a mature, popular, and lightweight javascript library which aims to bring structure to your client-side code. The goal of backbone.js is to bring MVC, a software architecture pattern, to client side development.Actually, backbone.js is an MV framework where view is also responsible for controller logic as well. In this blog, we will build a simple social bookmarking application.

In brief, MVC is a programming design pattern for separating the different concerns of your application. The M corresponds to Model and is used to define domain object. The V corresponds to View and is responsible for display logic. Finally, the C corresponds to Controller and is responsible for user interactions and interactions between Views and Models.

You can find source code of the application here https://github.com/shekhargulati/getbookmarks. Backbone.js is used by Linkedin, Foursquare, Wunderkit, Groupon, etc to build complex applications. You can view the full list here.
