    Have you done any research on your question? You might try typing "what is a web app" into a search engine, and see what you get.

    The easiest web apps can be made with node.js web application server. Both server code and client code are written in javascript with the client using html for format and display of the application.


    In contrast, writing Java web apps requires writing Java servlets on the server side and then using javascript on the client side. Similarly for other types of web apps.
