A Promise is an object that represents either the completion or failure of a user task. A promise in JavaScript can be in three states pending, fulfilled, or rejected. 

The main advantage of using a Promise in JavaScript is that a user can assign callback functions to the promises in case of a rejection or fulfillment of a Promise, also by using promises one can easily handle the control flow of all the Asynchronous events or data upcoming. As the name suggests a promise is either kept or broken. So, a promise is either completed(kept) or rejected(broken).

Promise resolve() method 

The promise.resolve() method in JS returns a Promise object that is resolved with a given value. Any of the three things can happen: 

  • If the value is a promise then the promise is returned.
  • If the value has a “then” attached to the promise, then the returned promise will follow that “then” to the final state.
  • The promise fulfilled with its value will be returned.




Value(s) to be resolved by this Promise.

Return Value: 

Either the promise of the promise fulfilled with its value is returned.

Example 1:  In this example, we will see a basic example of a promise. resolve method.


let promise = Promise.resolve(17468);
promise.then(function (val) {
    //Output: 17468



The above example is made using the old version approach we may also use the newest arrow function-based approach and also try to avoid writing var datatype since it may mix up several other variables and may produce incorrect results. Below is the shortest approach for the above-stated approach.

Example 2: Following is the code snippet that shows the other version of the above-illustrated approach-


Promise.resolve(17468).then((value) => console.log(value));



Example 3: In this example, we will be using a timer function called setTimeout() will be responsible for the execution of the values which are passed inside resolve() which is passed inside that timer function.


const promise = new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
    setTimeout(() => {
        resolve([89, 45, 323]);
    }, 5000);
promise.then(values => {



Example 4: In this example, we will be resolving the first promise inside another newly created promise in which we have defined one timer function (setTimeout).


const promise = Promise.resolve(3126);
const promise1 = new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
    setTimeout(() => {
        promise.then(val => console.log(val));
    }, 5000);
promise1.then(vals => {
