        res.end('Page One');
    });
    
    dispatcher.onPost("/page2", function(req, res) {
        res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
        res.end('Page Two');
    });
    
    dispatcher.beforeFilter(/\//, function(req, res, chain) { //any url 
        console.log("Before filter");
        chain.next(req, res, chain);
    });
    
    dispatcher.afterFilter(/\//, function(req, res) { //any url 
        console.log("After filter");
        chain.next(req, res, chain);
    });
    
    dispatcher.onError(function(req, res) {
        res.writeHead(404);
    });
    
    http.createServer(function (req, res) {
        dispatcher.dispatch(req, res);
    }).listen(1337, '127.0.0.1');
