I understand that node.js is a single thread and is a single process in the memory, I’m working on a project employing state machine and wondering how that will work in this context. I’m feeling the states will be shared across users because it’s a single thread or a single process. Calling out for directions/advices.
let’s say I’ve state A, state B, state C
Application can only transition in this sequence, A -> B -> C
Initial state is A,
user 1 requests and as a result the state machine moves to state B and then finally state C
user 2 requests, will the state machine for this new user be in state A or state C?
Here is Solutions:
We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
This article has a very interesting approach on how to deal with the FSM abstraction under an event based environment.
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
