Node.js employs an event-driven architecture and a non-blocking I/O model, and it provides some blindingly fast performance to some types of data-intensive Web apps. It is about JavaScript on the server side. LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay are among ardent Node.js users, and none other than Microsoft has discussed end-to-end JavaScript coverage on its Azure cloud. The objective is absolutely fast I/O.

This article features Joyent CTO and co-founder Jason Hoffman, who discusses the roots and reason of node.js. He said:

“Why we did it is, at Joyent we have a lot of servers, more than most companies in the Fortune500 and we write in C, in a compiled language. We needed to write servers in a dynamic language for talking to certain protocols. Basically, we had to write service endpoints. The Node part of Node.js is separate. It is designed so that it can handle a lot endpoints – on the order of a million. Most things written for the [Java Virtual Machine] can only handle 20,000 [endpoints]. Node is meant to handle a lot of I/O. So we took the node part and married that with V8 [the JavaScript virtual machine from Google].”

This short tutorial shows some sample code to get started with networking C++ and AS3. This tutorial expects that you have a basic understanding of C++, AS3, and network programming. Also this is my first tutorial.

Michael Carter et al have been working on js.io, a client library that gives you networking, including Comet like support, via JavaScript.

The low level work can sit upon Comet APIs, and in the future, Web Sockets, and you get high level APIs to protocols such as:

  • amqp
  • imap
  • irc
  • ldap
  • smtp
  • ssh
  • stomp
  • telnet
  • xmpp

There are some demos such as LiveHelp that uses Orbited as the backend.
