  1. Could you please explain the routing i.e. “api/customers/save” and “api/customers/all”?
    If I try to change to change the route for post request to “api/customers/submit” in both the app.js file and postrequest.js file…it shows an error, what is the reason for this?

  2. Hello grokonez ,
    Thanks for the Good explanation on this interesting topic, unfortunately This program is not working for me.
    When I hit the SUBMIT button it is not showing the message “Post Successfully!”, but I am able to see the function “ajaxPost” in the browser inspect/debugmode, I tried to put a breakpoint and it is not reaching the breakpoint.
    It seems like the “ajaxPost” method is not firing when SUBMIT button is pressed.

    Please let me know if I am missing any.


  3. Would it be hard to show an example of using handlebars (.hbs) template system? I get 404 errors trying to get it to read the post and get paths because it uses an app.js and an index.js. Putting your app.js code in mine doesn’t seem to work.
