how to call an functoin on XSJS from sapui5?

Let's say I have a file myFile.xsjs and I have a function myFunction(param){ ...logic inside}

How can I call this function from sapui5 controller? All the examples I've seen follow this format which doesn't really solve my problem.

jQuery.ajax({
    url : "url/to/your/Service.xsjs?" + query,
    success : function(response) {
        // will be called once the xsjs file sends a response
        console.log(response);
    },
    error : function(e) {
        // will be called in case of any errors:
        console.log(e);
    }
});

In this case there is a parameter being passed but not directly to the function. This casse works fine when you have only a few parameters that are single values. I'm going to have several parameters which are arrays, how can I accomplish this?

    for your scenario, you need to do an AJAX post from your UI and pass your arrays or other parameters to the XSJS service

    on the XSJS side - you get query string params as:

    var paramHello = $.request.parameters.get("hello");

    and you get the body of your post as:

    var body = $.request.body.asString();

    then you can get the properties of your JSON object..

    here is the documentation

    hope this helps
