In this part 2 of the series, we’re going to add a second instance running the popular MongoDB database. A Node.JS Application on the Amazon Cloud. Part 1: Installing Node on an EC2 instance – The Floppy Disk. In this three-part exercise, we’re going to build a web application using Javascript on both the client and server side, using Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-hosting infrastructure and the Node.JS framework.

A Node.JS Application on the Amazon Cloud. Part 1: Installing Node on an EC2 instance – The Floppy Disk

What we’re going to do first is install Node on an Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2) virtual server instance provided by Amazon Web Services. In the following parts of this series, we’ll add a MongoDB database instance, and develop a simple server-side web application in Javascript using the Express framework and the Mongoose library for accessing our database. Why use Javascript for a Server-side Application?

Node is the increasingly popular backend framework for building single-page web apps. On top of providing the advantage of an asynchronous (event-based) programming model on the backend, it means I can code in Javascript on both the frontend and the backend again – just like in the good old days, coding client-server applications in C. Our Requirements Aptana Studio Sublime Text 2. Add or Remove EC2 Servers. Overview Cloud Manager integrates with Amazon Web Services (AWS) so that you can provision EC2 servers directly from the Cloud Manager interface.

In this third part of our exercise, we’re going to use the primary AWS EC2 instance on which we installed Node in Part 1, and the database EC2 Instance we set up in Part 2, as the platform for building a simple web application server. We are going to code that web server in Javascript, using Node together with the Express and Mongoose Node library packages.

Installing the Node libraries we’ll need Returning to your primary EC2 instance, open an SSH console and install the express and mongoose node packages on the node instance. $ npm install mongoose $ npm install express Coding our simple application Now on your Mac, create a new javascript source code file app.js and follow these simple instructions to build your application. First we need to load the node libraries we need in this example, namely node’s own http library plus the express and mongoose packages we already installed on our EC2 instance.
