Here’s recap of blogs from the last week or so…
In many enterprises, SOAP web services are still important assets, and some APIs are only available via SOAP. Unfortunately, SOAP is fairly heavy weight, and working with XML-based SOAP payloads in Node.js is not very fun. It’s much nicer to use JSON and to wrap or mediate a SOAP service and expose it as a REST API. In this blog, I’ll walk you through the steps to connect to an existing SOAP web service and transform it into a REST API.
In One of the main draws to Node.js is its ability to respond efficiently to a large number of requests, but users of your app don’t care how much you’re squeezing out of a single core. They want stuff to show up. Now. In this blog we’ll show you a pretty simple technique: using a feature of HTTP 1.1 called Chunked transfer encoding.
LoopBack version 1.8.0 introduces browser support with two key features: The
loopback.Remote connector and the browserify distribution. These enable running a LoopBack client application in the browser that shares code with a LoopBack server application. This means you can adopt the same programming model on both client and server.
What’s LoopBack? It’s an open source API server powered by Node for connecting devices and apps to data and services.
In this blog we’ll at practical examples using Promises, Try/Catch, Angular Zone.js and Bert Belder’s new Zone project to get a better understanding of how to effectively handle error in asynchronous flow.
