// This application to demo the use of restfull services

// This is the core for any MV* pattern

// let me know if you have any question

// use express server, it must be in the node_modules

save this code as wk4_myserver.js in c:ENTD261

to run this code, make sure you are on c:entd261 if not change directory to c:entd261 

>cd c:entd261

C:ENTD261>node wk4_myserver.js

once the server is running, you will get

Express server listening on port 55555

from any browser



// setup

var express=require(“express”);

var http=require(“http”);

var app=express();

// run the server


console.log(‘Express server listening on port 55555’);

// <<< here is the Model, the data storage

var products = [

         { id: 0, name: ‘watch’, description: ‘Tell time with this amazing watch’, price: 30.00 },

         { id: 1, name: ‘sandals’, description: ‘Walk in comfort with these sandals’, price: 10.00 },

         { id: 2, name: ‘sunglasses’, description: ‘Protect your eyes in style’, price: 25.00 }


// http://localhost:55555                             // general route

// here is the view 

app.get(“”, function(req,res){

  var msg=””

  msg += “<center><h1> This is the default page </h1></center>”

  msg += ” use the following <br />”

  msg += ” http://localhost:55555/hello <br />”

  msg += ” http://localhost:55555/goodbye <br />”

  msg += ” http://localhost:55555/products <br />”

  msg += ” http://localhost:55555/products/2 <br />”



// <<< routes = controller

// http://localhost:55555/hello                    // welcome  route

app.get(“/hello”, function(req,res){

  res.send(“Hello ENTD261 class”);


// http://localhost:55555/goodbye                       // good bye route

app.get(“/goodbye”, function(req,res){

  res.send(“Thank you ENTD261 class”);


// http://localhost:55555/products                       // load and display all products

app.get(‘/products’, function(req, res) {



// http://localhost:55555/products/2                    // load and display product id 2

app.get(‘/products/:id’, function(req, res) {

         if ( > (products.length – 1) || < 0) {

                 res.statusCode = 404;

                 res.end(‘Not Found’);
