Achieve: JavaScript Servlets on Node.js

Achieve is a modern HTTP server that runs on Node.js and uses JavaScript Servlets to initiate backend processing. (npm, GitHub) JS Servlets are fast, very easy to use, and do not limit your ability to develop sophisticated backend applications; perfect for the rapid development of microservices or complete Node.js-based web applications. You can even use it just to serve web pages.
A servlet is a small program that runs on a server. The term has long since been associated with Java. Java Servlets provide the interface between servers and backend application programs written in Java. This new server implementation, named Achieve, provides a JavaScript Servlet implementation on Node.js. If you are familiar with Java Servlets, you should easily see general similarities in the new JS Servlet design.
