Usage

Falconer = require('falconer').Falconer

// Create a Falconer instance for the upstream application
var upstreamApp = new Falconer({
    host: 'myApp.example.com',
    port: 80
});

// The falconer client will proxy express/connect requests to your upstream app
var app = require('express').createServer();
// or
// var app = require('connect').createServer();

// Add the client as a middleware to your app to enable proxy
app.use(upstreamApp);
app.listen(4000);

// The falconer client will emit any events received from the upstream app
upstreamApp.on('someUpstreamEvent', function(payload1, payload2){
    // handle events from upstream app
});

// You can also easily send HTTP requests to the upstream app
// These will also query for events from the upstream app
upstreamApp.get('/some/endpoint.json').complete(function(response){
    // response is an http.ClientResponse
    // response.body contains response body as a string
});

// More requests
upstreamApp.post('/users.json').
    .json({user: {name: 'Jim Hoskins'}})
    .header('Accept', 'text/html, */*')
    .header({
        'Cookie': 'name=value',
        'custom-header': 'value'
    })
    .on('response', function(res){
        // before response data events
    })
    .complete(function(res){
        // response after response end event. 
        // includes response.body
    });
