The Node.js driver for Oracle Database, node-oracledb, is pretty low level – as a good driver should be! But that doesn’t mean you have to work at that level all the time. Perhaps you’d like to…
- use promises rather than callbacks
- have a simplified execute method that doesn’t require getting and releasing connections
- ensure that certain buildup and teardown procedures are used to keep connections clean and consistent
All of these are great reasons to create a wrapper module for the driver that gives you what you want without having to wait to see if these features are added to the driver itself (which they may never be). I wrote a sample application that uses such a wrapper module that implements all of the functionality listed above.
