What is Laravel Framework

Laravel is known as the “full stack” framework because it handles everything from web services to database management and HTML generation. The vertically integrated web development environment provides developers with a better experience.
Developers can generate and manage Laravel project environments through command line tools. Laravel comes with an Artisangreat command-line tool called, which provides some useful commands for development and can be used to generate framework code and database management. It is based on the powerful Symfony Console component.

Laravel’s goal is to create a pleasant development process for developers without sacrificing the functionality of the application. Happy developers can create the best code! For this purpose, we take advantage of the strengths of the framework to focus on Laravel, which is based on development languages ​​or tools such as Ruby on Rails, ASP.NET MVC, and Sinatra.

How does Laravel’s Response Process work?

A typical laravel application consists of the MVC mentioned above

When accessing a laravel application, the browser sends a request that is received by the web server and passed to laravel’s routing engine. After the laravel router receives the request, it redirects to the corresponding controller class according to the configuration.

It is then taken over by the controller class. In some cases, the controller will immediately render a view, which is a template that will be converted to HTML and sent back to the browser. A more general dynamic website, the controller interacts with the model and communicates with the database. After the model is called, the controller renders the final view (HTML, CSS, and images) and returns the full web page to the user’s browser.

Laravel advocates models, views, and controllers that should be kept completely separate to store separate files in different directories. This is where laravel’s directory structure comes into play.

Design patterns like MVC are created to make the work of developers easier. This is where Laravel is better than PHP without any patterns. If this discussion you feel very abstract now, don’t worry! When you start working with Laravel, you won’t realize that you are working in a design pattern. After a while, it will become natural.

Data model

The data model is the foundation of any application that builds the business logic of the application. Each piece of data is represented by using a database table. Laravel provides some techniques to simplify access to the database.

Laravel connects the application’s data model and database tables by turning the table rows in the database into PHP objects that can be easily manipulated. It also enables you to enforce business rules, describe relationships between different data models in your application, and more.

Migrating Apps from Laravel to AWS

Amazon Web Services is one of the most popular choices among experienced PHP developers in deploying Laravel-based applications. However, the technical aspects of web applications are not easy for people with low technology. Everyone wants to quickly deploy a perfect feature and easy-to-install Laravel PHP application on the AWS cloud infrastructure. An interesting fact to note is that having a hosting provider can not only help you but also help you easily implement a free web host and focus on building awesome websites.

It is understood that a Cloud Hosting Platform is the ultimate solution for design organizations and developers, helping to save you time and resources, making it really important to market and operate online businesses.

Hey! You can optimize your new managed cloud server for Laravel PHP at any time.

Laravel Architecture on Microservices

Microservices is a software architecture style that combines complex large-scale Laravel applications in a modular way based on Small Building Blocks that focus on a single responsibility and function. Blocks communicate with each other using a language-independent/Language agnostic API set. One of the concepts that the microservices architecture applies to Laravel software architecture styles is Dew Computing, which means the computing power of many small dews (representing the functional components of microservices).

Advantages of the AWS Microservice Architecture

Yes, anything that can exist or even be hot can’t be for no reason, and there must be some truth. AWS architecture is no exception! The advantages are as follows:

  • Independence: Each AWS microservice can be deployed on a separate physical machine, virtual machine, or Docker to have a native distributed architecture design.
  • Scalability: Based on its independence, makes it easy to scale the microservice architecture horizontally or vertically based on the business or technology line.
  • Upgradeability and ease of maintenance: Still based on its independence, each microservice can be upgraded and maintained independently.
  • Any programming language: Each microservice can be developed according to the programming language familiar to the development team, and then provide APIs according to the REST protocol or RPC protocol.

When to use the AWS architecture:

  • When your Laravel system has a large scale and integrates a large number of services, you can consider using some of the “microservices”. Never use microservices at the beginning of the Laravel app/project. At this time, the whole system is still small along with the system and business. The continuous growth and the system architecture will undergo a lot of changes, if you use microservices in the early stage, it is easy to cause strong coupling between microservices.
  • When you have a very deep understanding of your system and can easily distinguish the boundaries of functions and services then you can try to consider the “microservice” architecture.
  • The AWS microservice architecture should be based on service division. The coupling between the service and the service can be easily seen. The service is divided and the coupling degree of the system is relatively controllable.
  • Finally, only when you can really list the pros and cons of the system migration to the microservices architecture and when you have a good response you must implement it.

To Conclude

Hire Laravel Developers to know the advantages of the AWS architecture as if they had found a life-saving straw and started implementing it immediately. As a result, they encountered high coupling between Laravel systems and services, which led to a significant compromise between teamwork. When testing for integration testing, it was necessary to traverse multiple AWS microservice systems across the entire line of business, resulting in a rise in test case index. The test results are not ideal.
