  3. 3. Agenda >> What is a promise >> How it works >> Advantages of promise >> Real life implementation (Demo) >> Q & A >> Some frequently used methods
  4. 4. What is a promise >> Schedule work for future >> Asynchronous programming approach >> Runs in background thread >> Foreground works without blocking >> Methods exposed by convention ends with “Async”
  5. 5. How it works Application Give me stuffs (via XHR call) MoveNext Promisestogetback Search I will manipulate the stuff if I get it HereisyourStuff Got it :) Let's manipulate
  6. 6. Some frequently used Methods >> then : Allows to define tasks to be done after promise fulfilled. >> done : Allows to define tasks to be done after promise fulfilled. >> any : Allows to define tasks to be done after any of the task performed among a set of promises. >> join : Allows to define tasks to be done after all of the tasks performed among a set of promises. >> cancel : Allows to cancel an in progress promise
  7. 7. then vs done >> Both of them are used after the completion of promised task >> Both the methods takes the same kind of parameters completed, error and in progress handlers >> “then” returns a promise object where as “done” returns an undefined >> In case any exception occurred in the promised block, “then” puts the error in the promise object and return it to outside. But “done” throws the same to outside as a normal exception. So better place for “done” is at the end of the promise chain
  8. 8. Advantages of promise >> No blocking of main thread for long running XHR calls. This can be handled in the background >> Ability to define the tasks after a long running XHR is over >> Can chain multiple calls >> Tasks can be defined to be done after the completion of multiple parallel processes or any process out the set processes
