Yes, the browser calls the service directly. No it's not necessary. Like they say, "the shortest distance between two points is a straight line". A more circuitous route will still work. I guess I can pipe the results thru my existing app. It just seems wasteful.

Another option would be a reverse proxy using Apache. I "believe" that would allow me to call the service using the same host/port as the app.

By the way it sounds like you are calling the node service from the client. Is that necessary? If so you could use web sockets. But why not route the call through your web app and have it call the node service (like a proxy)?
