1) This world shows a simple example of how to make a request:


2) Lets say you created a simple subserver "MyServer" with

module.exports = function(route, app) {
    app.get(route, function(req, res) {
        res.end("MyServer is running!");

To make a request to the handler run:


(in an older version of Lively:
new URL(Config.nodeJSURL + '/MyServer/').asWebResource().get().content)
