Can create service in Cassablansa to support AngularJS?

Dec 23, 2014 at 3:26 AM
My focus communication between Casablansa back-end services and AngularJS. AngularJS use for implement front-end interactive with user. After front-end send detail on JSON to back-end on Casablansa REST web service.

Why use Casablansa & AngularJS ?

1) AngularJS support REST-full service by communication with JSON
2) Casablanca can parses string from JSON object when Http method on AngularJS calls to back-end service.
3) Need performance responses information from service send back to front-end. I supposes Casablanca use C++. It's can push high performance to service implement in native language.

Who have any idea? I read C# service supports AngularJS such link here[1,2].

Hi rchatsiri,

The C++ Rest SDK contains a library HTTP server that can be used to author a REST service. Take a look at our http_listener for some starting documentation and the reference docs. Please note the main focus of this library has been for client side applications so our http_listener hasn't received the same amount of attention as our http_client. We haven't really done any performance work with the http_listener.

Hello Steve,

Yes, You advise focus in http_client code of Casablanca. My view, http_listener maybe read follow as format below. It's example code send POST method to service and message decoded in last below. Opportunities to change http_listener to recevied GET/POST from other client not depend on http_client code of cplusplus. Where point of source code in parse string when client send http request to server?

var app = 'AirFare';
var d1 = new Date();
var d2 = new Date();
    url: '/api/test',
    method: 'POST',
    headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json' },
    data: {application: app, from: d1, to: d2}
After read format of header over network as below.

Hi rchatsiri,

I'm really having trouble understanding exactly what you are asking for. What are you stuck on or do you need help with? Take a look at one of our http_listener samples CasaLens for some example http_listener code. If you need to process a POST request in a server you can hook up a callback for the POST method with http_listener::support(methods::POST, ...). Then when your callback is invoked you can use the http_request::extract_json() method to get the request body as a JSON object, you also could get it as a string with http_request::extract_string().
