Below are few major features of Node Js
Q1. What is Node.js?
Q2. What is let, const and var in Node JS?
let, const and var in Node JS
Var – a variable declared with var can be used in the entire program. It is declared as the variable is available to access within that function. Also, the variable can be updated anytime.
Let – Let is considered to be a block with curly brackets. A variable with let and curly brackets (block), means that the variable can be used only within the specified block.
Const – Variables that do not need to get updated in the complete lifecycle of the program are declared with const.
Q3. What do you understand by middleware?
Middleware is a layer of software that is allowed to lie between operating systems and applications. It acts as a pipe to transfer data between the application and operating systems.
In Node.js middleware are functions that sit between the request object ( req ), the response object ( res ). It acts as a filter that has access to both the request and response object.
Below are a few examples of middleware
Q4. How to connect NodeJS with mongodb?
Q5. How does Promise and Queue work in Node.js?
Promises are specifically designed pattern used to reduce the practice of unintuitive call backs. Promises are generally used with ‘then’ function in the code.
Promises are designed to execute two functions.
A queue is specifically used to control the execution flow. Also, the queue is used to get a solution for a specific problem.
Q6. Describe Node.js event loop and event driver architecture?
Node.js is an application especially called as single-threaded. They are used to provision concurrency by the concept of event and callbacks.
When a task is getting completed, node thread by using the event loop triggers the next function to get executed.
When the event loop triggers, there is an event listener ready to execute the next function. These structural loops are called as event driver architecture.
Q7. How are Promises better than callbacks ?
When there is a completion of any single-threaded we need to tell callbacks what to do next.
Promises are designed in such a way that it comes back with an object (alert) and then we will tell promises about what to do next when there is asynchronous task completion.
Promises are also known as asynchronous callbacks. They are better callbacks because they make error handling across multiple asynchronous calls more effortless than callbacks.
Q8. What is JIT and how is it related to Node?
Q9. What is callback hell?
Callback Hell is also known as the pyramid of doom. It is an anti-pattern seen in the code of programmers who are not wise in the ways of asynchronous programming.
Q10. Why do you use forever with Node.js?
Q11. Why Node.js is based on single threaded architecture?
Q12. What is the difference between Node.js and Ajax?
Q13. What is REPL in Node.js?
Q14. What is a Buffer in Node.js?
The Buffer class in the Node JS is used to store raw data in a raw memory allocation outside the V8 heap. It is used to handle the octet streams while dealing with the TCP streams. A Buffer class is like an array but stores the stream data in 7667ytghfixed-size, raw memory allocation. The buffer class is within a global scope so users don’t need to use the require('buffer').Buffer.
Q15. What are Global object in Node.js?
As the name suggests, global objects are available in all the modules as they are global in nature. Developers can use it directly in their application instead of including it to use it. Some of these global objects are not actually in the global scope but in the module scope.
Some important global objects are:- __dirname, __filename, console, process, buffer, setImmediate(), setInterval(), setTimeout(), clearImmediate(), clearInterval, clearTimeout.
These global objects can be modules, functions, strings, and objects.
Q16. What is the use of Zlib in Node.js?
The Zlib module in the Node JS is used to compress and decompress the files. This module is implemented using Gzip and Deflate/Inflate. It provides the way for zipping and unzips files. This module comes with a lot of built-in properties and methods for working with compression and decompression. Before using the module,
you should include it in your file by using the following line.
var Zlib = require('zlib')
Q17. What is NPM? How to uninstall a dependency using npm?
To uninstall a dependency using the npm, you can simply use the following statement in the npm command line.
npm uninstall <package-name>
Q18. What is Piping in Node?
The main objective of piping is to read data from a readable stream of data, and it functions to write the same data into a write stream.
In the node applications, the stream of data between the two arguments is piped together. This is done by using the pipe method.
Q19. Which module is used for buffer based operations in NodeJs?
Q20. Explain Chaining in NodeJs?
In NodeJS, chaining helps to chain asynchronous fusions.
Chaining process consists of
Q21. What is difference between return and callback?
Difference between return and callback
When we use call back function, if there is an asynchronous function, it does not return with a value. Instead, we have to identify and make the further process.
When we use a promise function, it returns with an alert (value) to us if there is any asynchronous function. So immediately we could able to react to it.
Express.js is a free and open source software and web application framework for Node JS which was designed for the development of web applications and API’s. It is also the standard server framework for Node JS. It was developed by TJ Holowaychuk on 16th November 2010. Along with the MongoDB database and Angular JS frontend framework, express JS is the backend part of the MEAN stack. With the help of this, you will be able to manage everything from routes to handling requests and views. It even provides a robust set of features for various web and mobile applications.
