Using server side Javascript with node.js and DB2

4 Jan

One relatively new alternative we see folks considering for app servers is server side JavaScript with node.js. My colleague Praveen has created a blog entry with a step by step description of setting up node.js and using it with the node-odbc interface, the Unix open source driver manager and our DB2 ODBC driver.

This specific example just happens to reference DB2 Express, but any of our client packages (for example IBM Data Server Driver Package – ds driver) can be used. This will also work with DB2 LUW and with a DB2 Connect license DB2 for z/OS and IBM i. Our common drivers also support Informix servers.

I am interested in any feedback folks have on the use and importance of solutions such as this.

Brent.
