In the index.html i have included the jQuery library. And the file have two tables one for showing all the employees and another one is for showing particular employee details. The html file has a input field to input employee id and a button. While clicking on the button it will fetch the details for that particular employee id and display details in the table. Below is the entire code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
    <title>Product App</title>
</head>
<body>

    <div>
        <h2>All Employees</h2>
        <table id="tblEmployees" border="1" style="border-collapse:collapse;"></table>
    </div>
    <div>
        <h2>Search by ID</h2>
        <input type="text" id="employeeId" size="5" />
        <input type="button" value="Search" onclick="find();" />
        <p id="product" />
        <table id="tblEmployee" border="1" style="border-collapse:collapse;"></table>
    </div>

    <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script>
        var uri = 'api/employee';

        $(document).ready(function () {
            // Send an AJAX request
            $.getJSON(uri)
                .done(function (data) {
                    // On success, 'data' contains a list of products.
                    $('<tr>', { html: formHeader() }).appendTo($('#tblEmployees'));
                    $.each(data, function (key, item) {
                        // Add a row item for the product.
                        $('<tr>', { html: formatItem(item) }).appendTo($('#tblEmployees'));
                    });
                });
        });

        function formatItem(item) {
            return '<td>' + item.EmployeeId + '</td><td>' + item.EmployeeName + '</td><td>' + item.Department + '</td><td>' + item.Designation + '</td>';
        }
        function formHeader() {
            return '<th>EmployeeId </th><th>EmployeeName </th><th>Department </th><th>Designation</th>';
        }

        function find() {
            var id = $('#employeeId').val();
            $.getJSON(uri + '/' + id)
                .done(function (data) {
                    $('#tblEmployee').html(formHeader());
                    $('<tr>', { html: formatItem(data) }).appendTo($('#tblEmployee'));
                })
                .fail(function (jqXHR, textStatus, err) {
                    $('#tblEmployee').html('Error: ' + err);
