[erlang-questions] integrating nodejs with erlang code

Just curious, but what is the *least efficient* way of connecting node.js
to Erlang.

If I were doing this I'd start with the least efficient method, build my
app, measure, then optimize if
necessary.

If the optimization is not necessary you have saved yourself a whole lot of
work.

Alternatively, write the code and if it is not fast enough wait ten years.


Cheers

/Joe
