RESTful Web API Design with Node.js

More Information
  • Learn about NoSQL data stores and integrate MongoDB in your Node.js application with Mongoose
  • Install, develop, and test your own Node.js user modules
  • Eliminate third-party dependencies in your tests with mocking
  • Comprehend the differences between an HTTP and RESTful application
  • Optimize RESTful service URI routing with best practices
  • Secure your services with NoSQL database integration within Node.js applications

In this era of cloud computing, every data provisioning solution is built in a scalable and fail-safe way. Thus, when building RESTful services, the right choice of the underlying platform is vital. Node.js, with its asynchronous, event-driven architecture, is just the right choice to build RESTful APIs.

This book will be your step-by-step guide in the RESTful world of Node.js. It starts with the implementation of a simple HTTP handler application and follows its evolution to a completed RESTful service solution, which introduces you to the best practices in developing RESTful services.

  • Design, implement, and route Node.js RESTful services with the Express framework module
  • Test user-developed modules with Nodeunit and module mocking with SinonJS
  • Use this practical guide to integrate MongoDB in your Node.js application
