The Most Famous Desktop App Development Languages That we Use

Desktop App Development Languages

C++-Icon

C++

C++ is a general-purpose object-oriented programming (OOP) language, developed by Bjarne Stroustrup, and is an extension of the C language. It is therefore possible to code C++ in a "C style" or "object-oriented style." In certain scenarios, it can be coded in either way and is thus an effective example of a hybrid language.

C++ is considered to be an intermediate-level language, as it encapsulates both high- and low-level language features. Initially, the language was called "C with classes" as it had all the properties of the C language with an additional concept of "classes." However, it was renamed C++ in 1983.

It is pronounced "see-plus-plus."

Desktop Application

desktop application in C++ is a native application that can access the full set of Windows APIs and either runs in a window or in the system console. Desktop applications in C++ can run on Windows XP through Windows 10 (although Windows XP is no longer officially supported and there are many Windows APIs that have been introduced since then).

A desktop application is distinct from a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app, which can run on PCs running Windows 10, and also on XBox, Windows Phone, Surface Hub, and other devices. For more information about desktop vs. UWP applications, see Choose your technology.

WPF-Icon

What is WPF?

Windows Presentation Foundation(WPF) is a development framework used to create a desktop application. It is a part of the .NET framework. The WPF has a resolution-independent and vector-based rendering engine which is helpful to deal with modern graphics hardware. The latest version of WPF is 4.6. In this framework, UI of the application is designed in XAML language and Application logic is Written in C# programming language.

Features of WPF are as following:

  • Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML)
  • Controls
  • Data Binding
  • Layout
  • 2D and 3D graphics
  • Animation
  • Styles
  • Templates
  • Documents
  • Media
  • Text
  • Typography

WPF Architecture: The major components of the WPF are PresentationFramework, PresentationCore, Milcore, Common Language Runtime(CLR), User32, Kernel. Milcore is written in unmanaged code in order to enable tight integration with DirectX, which is responsible for display. WPF has fine control over memory and execution. The composition engine in milcore is extremely performance-sensitive and required giving up many advantages of the Common Language Runtime to gain performance.

C#-Icon

What is c# Language?

C# is a strongly typed object-oriented programming language. C# is open source, simple, modern, flexible, and versatile. In this article, let’s learn what C# is, what C# can do, and how C# is different than C++ and other programming languages.
 
A programming language on computer science is a language that is used to write software programs.
  
C# is a programming language developed and launched by Microsoft in 2001. C# is a simple, modern, and object-oriented language that provides modern day developers flexibility and features to build software that will not only work today but will be applicable for years in the future.
 
Key characteristics of C# language include:
  1. Modern and easy
  2. Fast and open source
  3. Cross platform
  4. Safe
  5. Versatile
  6. Evolving
JAVA-Icon

What is Java Language

Java is a general-purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers “write once, run anywhere” (WORA), meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation.

For example, you can write and compile a Java program on UNIX and run it on Microsoft Windows, Macintosh, or UNIX machine without any modifications to the source code. WORA is achieved by compiling a Java program into an intermediate language called bytecode. The format of bytecode is platform-independent. A virtual machine, called the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), is used to run the bytecode on each platform.

winform-Icon

What is WinForm

In Windows application, Windows forms provide a wrapper consisting of a set of C++ classes for the development of Windows applications and every control in windows form application is a concrete instance of a class. It provides a variety of controls such as text boxes, buttons, labels and web pages along with options to create a custom control. For this, there is windows form designer tool available in Visual Studio to handle the controls on the form and arrange them as per the desired layout for adding code to handle the events.

In windows forms, application setting is another feature to create, store and maintain the information. Windows form class can be extended using inheritance to design application framework, which provides the abstraction and code reusability. Forms should be compact with controls on its limited size. Forms can be broken into chunks packaged in assemblies that can automatically update itself. Designing the application provides the scalability and flexibility with ease for debugging and maintenance. Windows forms cannot be passed across the application domain boundary.

  • It's older and thereby more tried and tested
  • There are already a lot of 3rd party controls that you can buy or get for free
  • The designer in Visual Studio is still, as of writing, better for WinForms than for WPF, where you will have to do more of the work yourself with WPF

The most obvious question is whether you actually need a desktop application. Some of the clear indicators that you do need a desktop solution are: 

  • The product requires a specific hardware interaction.
  • You want to provide a UX or UI that would be hard to achieve with a web app.
  • The app needs a high level of security to protect confidential information. 
  • The app requires more processing power (both on GPU and CPU level) for features such as 3D software, computer vision, image processing, or advanced algorithms. 
  • The app needs to run in a non-internet environment.
  • The solution requires significant RAM memory or other hardware resources including large screens (between 4K and 8K), special kind of input device, or card readers. 

f you developed a big idea, then it was probably in response to a need you saw. After all, products and services are designed based on the demands or necessities of a specific niche. Unfortunately, these needs can become secondary concerns in some development projects. Before you jump into actually developing your solution, make sure that it fulfills your target audience’s needs. 

First, get to know your audience. They’re the ones who will determine whether your app is worth using. Learning about their preferences and analyzing the market and your competition are key. 

This will help you bring a user-focused approach to the development process. It’s also more likely the resulting app will be crisp and innovative for your users. 

Before beginning development, you first have to determine what platform the app will run on: Windows, Mac, Linux, or cross-platform? The operating system you choose will define the specific languages or frameworks you can use. 

If your software solution is going to fill a specific need (for internal use or for only one type of customers) then find the platform that you or your customer are already familiar with. However, if your application is going to be sold for massive use or to the general public, it’s best to create a cross-platform solution(link is external) so you don’t limit your audience. 

There are many great desktop app frameworks that work for all platforms and others that just work with a specific operating system. Each has its own advantages and limitations, so the choice depends on what you want. If you are focusing on only one operating system, then you can use their specific platform and frameworks:

  • Windows: Works with Microsoft Virtual Studio and (usually) .NET, but is also open to Python, C#, C++, Visual Basic, and others.
  • MacOs: Works with Cocoa and (usually) Xcode, but also supports Python, Ruby, Perl, and C++.
  • Linux: Usually works with QT Creator and the C++/Qt language framework.
  • Cross-platform: Many options, but the most common is C++/Qt. 

The framework and tools you use to build your app will define such things as the speed of development, the performance of the application, scale of app–system interactions, and screen resolutions supported. Performing your our research or asking a subject-matter expert for advice are the best ways to choose your solution’s platform.

This is an important architecture decision-point. If your application needs to perform complex operations, a multi-threaded architecture might be the correct approach. Multi-threading allows the application to run multiple operations at the same time. 

It can be useful in complex operations. The single-processor system can handle user input on one side without hindering the responsiveness required to execute long-running tasks that don’t require user intervention in the background. 

Additionally, it can be useful to speed up execution by making use of multiple cores and processors when available. Instead of having 1 processor do 100 operations, you can have 4 processors do 25 operations each. This reduces the time needed four-times over.

This is an organizational point, but that doesn’t make it any less important. You need to plan how you will deliver the application to your target users. Each distribution platform has its own rules and guidelines that must be carefully followed if you want to be fully compliant. 

If your application is accessing a specific resource without consent, it will be blocked by the operating system or marked as potentially harmful, which can drive users away. 

Just because you built a desktop app doesn’t mean you can distribute it through the App Store or the Windows Store. For more information on the guidelines and specifications for each, you can check out the official App Store Submission(link is external) and Windows Store Submission(link is external).

We provide continuous ongoing support throughout the development cycle. We assign a dedicated team at the start of the project containing a project manager, a front-end and back-end developer, a designer and a QA person who keeps in touch with you for your requirements. Moreover, we have regular communication via weekly phone calls, emails and chat to update the status of the development.

After the project is over, we provide ad-hoc support for addressing minor requests from the client. Contact us to learn more about engaging with us for your existing or accomplished project.
