Web Technologies Under MEAN Stack
Below are the four technologies under MEAN that provide a full-stack development environment for building robust and scalable enterprise web applications.
Below are the key features of MongoDB:
- File storage
- Load balancing
- Support for field indexing and ad-hoc queries
- Support for multi-document transactions
Express.js is an open-source web application framework for Node.js that enables developers to build responsive APIs and web applications. Running under the MIT License, Express.js is popularly known as the de facto standard server framework for Node.js. It is a back-end development component of MEAN stack that works best with MongoDB and Angular.js as the frontend tool.
Below are the key features of Node.js framework:
- Unified API
- Threading support with non-blocking I/O calls
- Event looping and package management
Enterprise Benefits of MEAN Stack Web Development
A few years back, web development was divided into different processes like frontend, backend, database, and quality testing. That being said, the knowledge of most developers was limited to their respective fields. However, the changing trends required them to upgrade their skills to handle both frontend and backend tasks. It paved way for full stack development with the advent of advanced software packs like MEAN Stack. Developers used to be divided into categories such as frontend, backend, mobile app, database, and testing developers. The developers had expertise in their respective fields.
Below are the key benefits of using MEAN stack:
- Easy switching between client and server
- Isomorphic coding
- The use of JSON
- Accelerated development and reusability
- Cloud compatibility

MEAN stack has been around for several years and is trusted by a large community of developers and testers to this date. However, there are many other similar alternatives that have emerged over the years. One of these is MERN Stack which replaced the AngularJS component of MEAN with ReactJS, making the process fast and more efficient. Nevertheless, AngularJS has also released a stable version that makes it easy to shift from Angular 1 to Angular 2. Considering the ease of use, MEAN will continue to be a preferred software stack for web development with increasing use cases.
