I come from a Java EE web application background, I’m used to Application Servers like Websphere, JBoss server, and front ends like JSF. Now I’m learning Angular and using Ionic framework.
I have got an idea of a simple app, and I can’t stop thinking of a backend with Wildfly application server and Postgresql database, as it is usually what I am used to work with.
I am afraid such a server and database may be too much for my app in terms of features and capabilites…
I’ve heard of Node.js, I have an intermediate JS knowledge so my questions are:
Would a hosting provider for Node.js be cheaper than one for a Wildfly server/Postgresql database?
What would be the suggested database to work with Node.js
How bad/good is the learning curve for Node.js?
So time, and cost are important factors. I’m used to those big servers and big RDMS but I would like know more about the light weight world
