Any reason not to pass request / response as a parameter?

In express I have a handler for a route ex:

router.get(`${api}/path/:params/entrypoint`, routeHandler);

In this example 'routeHandler' function has a lot of logic doing various things. I'd like to break 'routeHandler' into smaller methods to ease readability and testability. So instead of:

routeHandler(req, res) {
    //many lines of code
}

We could have:

routeHandler(req, res) {
    helperOne(req, res);
    helperTwo(req, res);
}

helperOne(req, res) {
//do stuff
}

helper2(req, res) {
//do stuff
}

I am being told not to do this by a coworker who is pretty senior, but I do not understand why. Does anyone know of any issues that can arise by passing the response or request objects into helpers? I can not think of any and google isn’t revealing any clear answer.

Thanks!

Yes you may run into some problems when passing those parameters, especially res. For example you may res.send multiple times (one in each function) which will raise an exception.

Scenario

A more concrete example is this

routeHandler((req, res) => {
    helperOne(req, res);
    helperTwo(req, res);
});

Based on some conditions, I want to stop and return an error from helperOne and not go execute any code from helperTwo. My definitions of these functions are like this

helperOne = (req, res) => {
    const dataPoint = req.body.dataPoint; // a number for example
    if (number > 10) {
        return res.send("This is not valid. Stopping here...");
    } else {
        console.log("All good! Continue..");
    }
}

helperTwo = (req, res) => {
    res.send("Response from helperTwo");
}

Then let’s say I do have req.body.dataPoint = 10, and I’m now expecting my routeHandler to stop after the return res.send in the first block of my if statement in helperOne.

This will not work as expected though, because the return will concern only helperOne which is the returning function. In other terms it won’t propagate to routeHandler.

In the end an exception will be raised because routeHandler will call helperTwo and try to send a response again.

Solution

  • Don’t send req or res. Just pass the data you need and handle the reponse in your mainhandler
  • An even better alternative is to use Express middlewares. Since you have multiple *“sequential”*handlers, you can chain multiple middlewares, which is closer to the standard Express.JS way

Is Java “pass by value” or “pass by reference” ?

Friends , in this article I’ll be explaining about whether Java uses pass by value or pass by reference ? After reading this article you will be able to grasp the concept about pass by value and pass by reference .While reading this article try to focus on example codes and associated comments .

Java is always pass by value and not pass by reference .

What does pass by value actually mean ?

As the name says , pass by value simply means , we pass the value of an Object and not actual/original reference variable of an Object from main function to the called function but the copy of reference variable of this object is passed to the called function which ultimately points to same object .
