Creates Middleware object.

Middleware is a very useful concept which allows to perform preprocessing of requests and post-processing of responses. Middleware has an access to both request and response objects and can modify them. This way each request can be checked/modified before passing handler and response can be post processed (for example this way we developer can set up custom error messages).
