Enterprise level REST APIs in Node.js
There are many advantages of developing a backend in Node.js, and I’m about to outline a few of them. First, this framework has a softer learning curve than Java and a very robust ecosystem. Also, compared to other scripting languages, it’s easier to test for load and performance.
It’s important to note that the traditional architecture of web application servers relies on multiple threads. However, a single thread can only handle a single request at a time. That limits the number of requests the server can handle. As a result, a traditional web application server isn’t always as performant as Node.js.
Another advantage of using Node is its asynchronous event-driven runtime. This is especially helpful for applications that require a lot of small tasks. Additionally, this allows for high concurrency, which is a requirement for heavily trafficked API endpoints. This also makes scaling your application easier.
