Return a string or json object from a BE Javascript business logic API Service


(Paul Barnes) #1

Hi

I’m sorry but I’m missing something fundamental here.

I’m trying to return a string ( an email address) in the response body from a JS API Service but the response body always shows ‘none’. Can you help explain whatI’m doing wrong with the following ?

class StdNodeService {

/**

  • @returns emailAddr
    **/
    testStandardNode() {

var unirest = require(‘unirest’);
var emailAddr;

unirest.get(‘https://www.truframe.co.uk/contact’)
.headers({‘Accept’: ‘application/json’, ‘Content-Type’: ‘application/json’})
.send({ “parameter”: 23, “foo”: “bar” })
.end(function (response) {

var startIndexOfStr = response.body.indexOf("mailto:");
var lengthOfMailTo = "mailto:".length
var startPosOfEMail = startIndexOfStr+lengthOfMailTo;
var endIndexOfStr = response.body.indexOf('\"', startPosOfEMail);
var emailAddr = response.body.substring(startPosOfEMail, endIndexOfStr);

console.log("::response Body string : string from mailto: = " + emailAddr);

});

return emailAddr;

}
}

Backendless.ServerCode.addService( StdNodeService );

Thanks
Paul
