JSON with Node.js

JSON Node.js

In the following example, we will request a URL to the web-server and receive a response.


The following is the server-side coding using Node.js.

var express = require("express"); var app = express(); app.post("/json-receive.js",function(req, res){ res.send('[{ "name": "Mike", "age": 36}]'); }); app.listen(8000, function(){ console.log("port is listening to 8000"); });

The following is the client-side coding to send a request and receive a response.
