Methods


[METHOD](call)

Called to respond to the HTTP method same as the function's name. The returned value can be a ServiceResponse object, an Object, in which case it is serialized as JSON, a null to send back an HTTP 204 (No Content) response, or anything else, in which case it is converted to a string and sent back as plain text. The returned value can also be a Promise of any of the above. If the promise is rejected with a ServiceResponse, the response is sent back to the client. If rejected with anything else, an HTTP 500 (Internal Server Error) response is sent back.
