AAHA solutions Node.js Development
Node.js is intended to run on a dedicated HTTP server and to employ a single thread with one process at a time. Node.js applications are event-based and run asynchronously. Code built on the Node platform does not follow the traditional model of receive, process, send, wait, receive. Instead, Node processes incoming requests in a constant event stack and sends small requests one after the other without waiting for responses.
Features of Node.js
I/O is Asynchronous and Event Driven: All APIs of Node.js library are asynchronous i.e. non-blocking. So a Node.js based server never waits for an API to return data. The server moves to the next API after calling it and a notification mechanism of Events of Node.js helps the server to get a response from the previous API call. It is also a reason that it is very fast.
Highly Scalable: Node.js is highly scalable because event mechanism helps the server to respond in a non-blocking way.
Open source: Node.js has an open source community which has produced many excellent modules to add additional capabilities to Node.js applications.
