In this tutorial, We are going to learn how to create a simple Hello World Node Js Application. We already have a basic information of Node.JS from our previous session. In this session, we will see how can we create a simple Hello World Node.JS Application.


Before getting started with Hello World Node.Js application we need to know about few major component related to a basic Node.JS application.

1- require directive – require directive is used to include required Node.JS module.

2-Create Server – The next thing we need to do is to create a server that will listen to the incoming request from the client.
