Database-js

DEPRECATED: Database-js2 has claimed the Database-js package name on NPM. This package will continue to get bug fixes, but will not get new features. All new development will be published to the Database-js package.

About

Database-js was started to implement a common, promise-based interface for SQL database access. The concept is to copy the Java pattern of using connection strings to identify the driver. Then provide wrappers around the implemented functionality to commonize the syntax and results.

Thus if SQLite, MySQL and PostgreSQL all have a database named test with a table named states we can access the data the same way.

Database-js has built-in prepared statements, even if the underlying driver does not support them. It is built on Promises, so it works well with ES7 async code.

Drivers

Currently available drivers:

See here how to add a new driver.

Install

npm install database-js2

Usage

SQLite

var Connection = require('database-js2').Connection;
 
var conn = new Connection("sqlite:///path/to/test.sqlite");
 
var statement = conn.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM states WHERE state = ?");
statement.query("South Dakota").then((results) => {
    console.log(results);
    conn.close().then(() => {
        process.exit(0);
    }).catch((reason) => {
        console.log(reason);
        process.exit(1);
    });
}).catch((reason) => {
    console.log(reaons);
    conn.close().then(() => {
        process.exit(0);
    }).catch((reason) => {
        console.log(reason);
        process.exit(1);
    });
});

MySQL

var Connection = require('database-js2').Connection;
 
var conn = new Connection("mysql://user:password@localhost/test");
 
var statement = conn.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM states WHERE state = ?");
statement.query("South Dakota").then((results) => {
    console.log(results);
    conn.close().then(() => {
        process.exit(0);
    }).catch((reason) => {
        console.log(reason);
        process.exit(1);
    });
}).catch((reason) => {
    console.log(reaons);
    conn.close().then(() => {
        process.exit(0);
    }).catch((reason) => {
        console.log(reason);
        process.exit(1);
    });
});

PostgreSQL

var Connection = require('database-js2').Connection;
 
var conn = new Connection("postgres://user:password@localhost/test");
 
var statement = conn.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM states WHERE state = ?");
statement.query("South Dakota").then((results) => {
    console.log(results);
    conn.close().then(() => {
        process.exit(0);
    }).catch((reason) => {
        console.log(reason);
        process.exit(1);
    });
}).catch((reason) => {
    console.log(reaons);
    conn.close().then(() => {
        process.exit(0);
    }).catch((reason) => {
        console.log(reason);
        process.exit(1);
    });
});

Notice that in all three examples, the only difference is the connection URL.

ES7 Compatibility: async

Because database-js is built on Promises, it works very well with ES7 async functions. Compare the following ES7 code to the SQLite code from above. They accomplish the same thing.

var Connection = require('database-js2').Connection;
 
(async function() {
    let conn, statement, results;
    
    try {
        conn = new Connection("sqlite:///path/to/test.sqlite");
        statement = conn.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM states WHERE state = ?");
        results = await statement.query("South Dakota");
        console.log(results);
    } catch (reason) {
        console.log(reason);
    } finally {
        if (conn) {
            await conn.close();
        }
        process.exit(0);
    }
})();
