Here’s this week’s recap of the Node.js related blogs we posted last week…
If you are reading this blog post, you may have fallen into the trap that I was snared in for many years. You owe it to yourself as a developer to learn new technologies and use the appropriate tool for the job. That being said, I have found that Node is really exciting and a joy to work in. In this post, I will show you how to create a basic REST service that reads from a MongoDB database using Java EE. After that, I will write the same code in Node to help you ease into learning this exciting new language.
Welcome to part one of a three part series that aims to help you get a jumpstart on new and breaking API changes in the upcoming Node.js v0.12 release. In part one, Alex Gorbatchev pulled out the non-breaking API changes, while in part two he separates out breaking APIs. In part three, Ben Noordhuis will detail breaking C++ API changes.
