Exploring Node.js Internals

I found a great article explaining Node JS internals, must read :

Some other articles :

  • Being an official website, explains what Node.js is, as well as its package managers, and lists web frameworks built on top of it.
  • This book by Manuel Kiessling does a fantastic job of explaining Node.js, after warning that JavaScript in the browser is not the same as the one in Node.js, even though both are written in the same language.
  • This beginner book goes beyond an explanation of the runtime. It teaches about packages and streams and creating a web server with the Express framework.
  • This is the official documentation of the supporting C++ code of the Node.js runtime.
  • This is the official documentation of the JavaScript engine that makes it possible to write Node.js with JavaScript.

Create Runnable Jar - Eclipse Options

When exporting to a Runnable Jar, there are three options in eclipse Helios. Extract required libraries into JARPackage required libraries into JARCopy required libraries into sub folder next to JAR. What are differences : Extract required libraries into JAR - Extracts the actual .class files from the libraries your app uses and puts those .class files inside the runnable JAR. So, the runnable JAR will not only contain the .class files of your application, but also the .class files of all the libraries your application uses. Package required libraries into JAR - Puts the actual JAR files of the libraries into your runnable JAR. Normally, a JAR file within a JAR file cannot be loaded by the JVM. But Eclipse adds special classes to the runnable JAR to make this possible. Copy required libraries into sub folder next to JAR - Keeps the library JARs completely separate from the runnable JAR, so the runnable JAR will only contain the .class files of your application. Option #2 is convenient be…
