• NOdeJS Mongoose Ubuntu

    Node.Js is javascript based web application development platform which is used to write both client side and server side code. Now programmer can use same language on both client and server side .

    It uses event-driven , non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient.

    The execution model of Node.Js is single threaded . Now you will be wondering unlike Apache which spawn one thread for each request , how Node.Js will be handling the request . If user A has requested some database call which will take 20s and then User B have made some request then it means User B have to wait for 20s as Node.js is single threaded . I will yes if Apache will be single threaded but not in Node.Js because of event loop .

    Event -Loop

    If a user is loading a page in Node.Js which has two database calls say “x” and “y” in sequence . “x” will take 20s and “y” 1s . Since database call of both “x” and “y” will be made in event loop . That is when data is fetched from database it is delivered . So for executing call “y” it will not wait for call “x” to complete though call “x” is made before call “y” . It made call “y” and deliver the data and when data for call “x” is fetched it is delivered .

    In apache it will took 20+1 sec to complete but in Node.Js it will be 20s . In Apache call “x” and “y” are synchronous but in Node.Js it is asynchronous .
