Naively Programmable Module

    node-mssql

    0.0.1 • Public • Published

    node-mssql Dependency Status NPM version

    An easy-to-use MSSQL database wrapper for Node.js / IO.js.

    There are some TDS modules which offer functionality to communicate with MSSQL databases but none of them does offer enough comfort - implementation takes a lot of lines of code. So I decided to create this module, that make work as easy as it could without losing any important functionality. node-mssql uses other TDS modules as drivers and offer easy to use unified interface. It also add extra features and bug fixes.

    Extra features:

    • Unified interface for multiple MSSQL drivers
    • Connection pooling with Transactions and Prepared statements
    • Parametrized Stored Procedures for all drivers
    • Serialization of Geography and Geometry CLR types
    • Smart JS data type to SQL data type mapper
    • Support both Promises and standard callbacks
    • Query building API by parameters

    At the moment it support three TDS modules:

    What's new (stable, npm)

    Installation

    npm install node-mssql
    

    Quick Example

    Insert Operation:
    var node_mssql = require('node-mssql');
     
    /* add configuration to query object */
    var queryObj = new node_mssql.Query({
        host: 'x.x.x.x',  // You can use 'x.x.x.x\\instance' to connect to named instance
        port: 1433,
        username: 'myuser',

            max: 10,
            min: 0,
            idleTimeoutMillis: 30000
        }
    }
    ### Basic configuration is same for all drivers.
    • driver - Driver to use (default: tedious). Possible values: tedious, msnodesql or tds.
    • user - User name to use for authentication.
    • password - Password to use for authentication.

    • domain - Once you set domain, driver will connect to SQL Server using domain login.
    • database - Database to connect to (default: dependent on server configuration).
    • connectionTimeout - Connection timeout in ms (default: 15000).
    • requestTimeout - Request timeout in ms (default: 15000).
    • stream - Stream recordsets/rows instead of returning them all at once as an argument of callback (default: false). You can also enable streaming for each request independently (request.stream = true). Always set to true if you plan to work with large amount of rows.
    • pool.max - The maximum number of connections there can be in the pool (default: 10).
    • pool.min - The minimun of connections there can be in the pool (default: 0).
    • pool.idleTimeoutMillis - The Number of milliseconds before closing an unused connection (default: 30000).
    ### Tedious
    • options.instanceName - The instance name to connect to. The SQL Server Browser service must be running on the database server, and UDP port 1444 on the database server must be reachable.
    • options.useUTC - A boolean determining whether or not use UTC time for values without time zone offset (default: true).
    • options.encrypt - A boolean determining whether or not the connection will be encrypted (default: false) Encryption support is experimental.

    • options.appName - Application name used for SQL server logging.
    • options.abortTransactionOnError - A boolean determining whether to rollback a transaction automatically if any error is encountered during the given transaction's execution. This sets the value for XACT_ABORT during the initial SQL phase of a connection.

    More information about Tedious specific options: http://pekim.github.io/tedious/api-connection.html

    ### Microsoft Driver for Node.js for SQL Server

    This driver is not part of the default package and must be installed separately by npm install msnodesql. If you are looking for compiled binaries, see node-sqlserver-binary.

    • connectionString - Connection string (default: see below).
    • options.trustedConnection - Use Windows Authentication (default: false).
    • options.useUTC - A boolean determining whether or not to use UTC time for values without time zone offset (default: true).

    Default connection string when connecting to port:

    Driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};Server={#{server},#{port}};Database={#{database}};Uid={#{user}};Pwd={#{password}};Trusted_Connection={#{trusted}};
    

    Default connection string when connecting to named instance:

    Driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};Server={#{server}\\#{instance}};Database={#{database}};Uid={#{user}};Pwd={#{password}};Trusted_Connection={#{trusted}};
    
    ### node-tds

    This driver is not part of the default package and must be installed separately by npm install tds.

    This module updates the node-tds driver with extra features and bug fixes by overriding some of its internal functions. If you want to disable this, require module with var sql = require('mssql/nofix').

        // ...
    });

    Version

    2.0


    ### query(command, [callback])

    Execute the SQL command. To execute commands like create procedure or if you plan to work with local temporary tables, use batch instead.

    Arguments

    • command - T-SQL command to be executed.
    • callback(err, recordset) - A callback which is called after execution has completed, or an error has occurred. Optional. If omited, returns Promise.

    Example

    var request = new sql.Request();
    request.query('select 1 as number', function(err, recordset) {
        // ... error checks
        
        console.log(recordset[0].number); // return 1
        
        // ...
    });

    Errors

    • ETIMEOUT (RequestError) - Request timeout.
    • EREQUEST (RequestError) - Message from SQL Server
    • ECANCEL (RequestError) - Canceled.
    • ENOCONN (RequestError) - No connection is specified for that request.
    • ENOTOPEN (ConnectionError) - Connection not yet open.
    • ECONNCLOSED (ConnectionError) - Connection is closed.
    • ENOTBEGUN (TransactionError) - Transaction has not begun.
    • EABORT (TransactionError) - Transaction was aborted (by user or because of an error).

    You can enable multiple recordsets in queries with the request.multiple = true command.

    var request = new sql.Request();
    request.multiple = true;
     
    request.query('select 1 as number; select 2 as number', function(err, recordsets) {
        // ... error checks
        
        console.log(recordsets[0][0].number); // return 1
        console.log(recordsets[1][0].number); // return 2
    });

    ### batch(batch, [callback])

    Execute the SQL command. Unlike query, it doesn't use sp_executesql, so is not likely that SQL Server will reuse the execution plan it generates for the SQL. Use this only in special cases, for example when you need to execute commands like create procedure which can't be executed with query or if you're executing statements longer than 4000 chars on SQL Server 2000. Also you should use this if you're plan to work with local temporary tables (more information here).

    NOTE: Table-Valued Parameter (TVP) is not supported in batch.

    Arguments

    • batch - T-SQL command to be executed.
    • callback(err, recordset) - A callback which is called after execution has completed, or an error has occurred. Optional. If omited, returns Promise.

    Example

    var request = new sql.Request();
    request.batch('create procedure #temporary as select * from table', function(err, recordset) {
        // ... error checks
    });

    Errors

    • ETIMEOUT (RequestError) - Request timeout.
    • EREQUEST (RequestError) - Message from SQL Server
    • ECANCEL (RequestError) - Canceled.
    • ENOCONN (RequestError) - No connection is specified for that request.
    • ENOTOPEN (ConnectionError) - Connection not yet open.
    • ECONNCLOSED (ConnectionError) - Connection is closed.
    • ENOTBEGUN (TransactionError) - Transaction has not begun.
    • EABORT (TransactionError) - Transaction was aborted (by user or because of an error).

    You can enable multiple recordsets in queries with the request.multiple = true command.


    ### bulk(table, [callback])

    Perform a bulk insert.

    Arguments

    Example

    var table = new sql.Table('table_name'); // or temporary table, e.g. #temptable
    table.create = true;
    table.columns.add('a', sql.Int, {nullable: true});
    table.columns.add('b', sql.VarChar(50), {nullable: false});
    table.rows.add(777, 'test');
     
    var request = new sql.Request();
    request.bulk(table, function(err, rowCount) {
        // ... error checks
    });

    IMPORTANT: Always indicate whether the column is nullable or not!

    TIP: If you set table.create to true, module will check if the table exists before it start sending data. If it doesn't, it will automatically create it.

    TIP: You can also create Table variable from any recordset with recordset.toTable().

    Errors

    • ENAME (RequestError) - Table name must be specified for bulk insert.
    • ETIMEOUT (RequestError) - Request timeout.
    • EREQUEST (RequestError) - Message from SQL Server
    • ECANCEL (RequestError) - Canceled.
    • ENOCONN (RequestError) - No connection is specified for that request.
    • ENOTOPEN (ConnectionError) - Connection not yet open.
    • ECONNCLOSED (ConnectionError) - Connection is closed.
    • ENOTBEGUN (TransactionError) - Transaction has not begun.
    • EABORT (TransactionError) - Transaction was aborted (by user or because of an error).

    ### cancel()

    Cancel currently executing request. Return true if cancellation packet was send successfully.

    Example

    var request = new sql.Request();
    request.query('waitfor delay \'00:00:05\'; select 1 as number', function(err, recordset) {
        console.log(err instanceof sql.RequestError);  // true
        console.log(err.message);                      // Canceled.
        console.log(err.code);                         // ECANCEL
        
        // ...
    });
     
    request.cancel();
    ## Transactions

    IMPORTANT: always use Transaction class to create transactions - it ensures that all your requests are executed on one connection. Once you call begin, a single connection is acquired from the connection pool and all subsequent requests (initialized with the Transaction object) are executed exclusively on this connection. Transaction also contains a queue to make sure your requests are executed in series. After you call commit or rollback, connection is then released back to the connection pool.

    var transaction = new sql.Transaction(/* [connection] */);

    If you omit connection argument, global connection is used instead.

    Example

    var transaction = new sql.Transaction(/* [connection] */);
    transaction.begin(function(err) {
        // ... error checks
     
        var request = new sql.Request(transaction);
        request.query('insert into mytable (mycolumn) values (12345)', function(err, recordset) {
            // ... error checks
     
            transaction.commit(function(err, recordset) {
                // ... error checks
                
                console.log("Transaction commited.");
            });
        });
    });

    Transaction can also be created by var transaction = connection.transaction();. Requests can also be created by var request = transaction.request();.

    Aborted transactions

    This example shows how you should correctly handle transaction errors when abortTransactionOnError (XACT_ABORT) is enabled. Added in 2.0.

    var transaction = new sql.Transaction(/* [connection] */);
    transaction.begin(function(err) {
        // ... error checks
        
        var rolledBack = false;
        
        transaction.on('rollback', function(aborted) {
            // emited with aborted === true
            
            rolledBack = true;
        });
     
        var request = new sql.Request(transaction);
        request.query('insert into mytable (bitcolumn) values (2)', function(err, recordset) {
            // insert should fail because of invalid value
     
            if (err) {
                if (!rolledBack) {
                    transaction.rollback(function(err) {
                        // ... error checks
                    });
                }
            } else {
                transaction.commit(function(err) {
                    // ... error checks
                });
            }
        });
    });

    Events

    • begin - Dispatched when transaction begin.
    • commit - Dispatched on successful commit.
    • rollback(aborted) - Dispatched on successful rollback with an argument determining if the transaction was aborted (by user or because of an error).

    ### begin([isolationLevel], [callback])

    Begin a transaction.

    Arguments

    Example

    var transaction = new sql.Transaction();
    transaction.begin(function(err) {
        // ... error checks
    });

    Errors

    • ENOTOPEN (ConnectionError) - Connection not yet open.
    • EALREADYBEGUN (TransactionError) - Transaction has already begun.

    ### commit([callback])

    Commit a transaction.

    Arguments

    Example

    var transaction = new sql.Transaction();
    transaction.begin(function(err) {
        // ... error checks
        
        transaction.commit(function(err) {
            // ... error checks
        })
    });

    Errors

    • ENOTBEGUN (TransactionError) - Transaction has not begun.
    • EREQINPROG (TransactionError) - Can't commit transaction. There is a request in progress.

    ### rollback([callback])

    Rollback a transaction. If the queue isn't empty, all queued requests will be canceled and the transaction will be marked as aborted.

    Arguments

    Example

    var transaction = new sql.Transaction();
    transaction.begin(function(err) {
        // ... error checks
        
        transaction.rollback(function(err) {
            // ... error checks
        })
    });

    Errors

    • ENOTBEGUN (TransactionError) - Transaction has not begun.
    • EREQINPROG (TransactionError) - Can't rollback transaction. There is a request in progress.
    ## PreparedStatement

    IMPORTANT: always use PreparedStatement class to create prepared statements - it ensures that all your executions of prepared statement are executed on one connection. Once you call prepare, a single connection is aquired from the connection pool and all subsequent executions are executed exclusively on this connection. Prepared Statement also contains a queue to make sure your executions are executed in series. After you call unprepare, the connection is then released back to the connection pool.

    var ps = new sql.PreparedStatement(/* [connection] */);

    If you omit the connection argument, the global connection is used instead.

    Example

    var ps = new sql.PreparedStatement(/* [connection] */);
    ps.input('param', sql.Int);
    ps.prepare('select @param as value', function(err) {
        // ... error checks
     
        ps.execute({param: 12345}, function(err, recordset) {
            // ... error checks
     
            ps.unprepare(function(err) {
                // ... error checks
                
            });
        });
    });

    IMPORTANT: Remember that each prepared statement means one reserved connection from the pool. Don't forget to unprepare a prepared statement!

    TIP: You can also create prepared statements in transactions (new sql.PreparedStatement(transaction)), but keep in mind you can't execute other requests in the transaction until you call unprepare.


    ### input(name, type)

    Add an input parameter to the prepared statement.

    Arguments

    • name - Name of the input parameter without @ char.
    • type - SQL data type of input parameter.

    ## CLI

    Before you can start using CLI, you must install mssql globally with npm install mssql -g. Once you do that you will be able to execute mssql command.

    Setup

    Create a .mssql.json configuration file (anywhere). Structure of the file is the same as the standard configuration object.

    {
        "user": "...",
        "password": "...",
        "server": "localhost",
        "database": "..."
    }

    Example

    echo "select * from mytable" | mssql /path/to/config

    Results in:

    [[{"username":"patriksimek","password":"tooeasy"}]]

    You can also query for multiple recordsets.

    echo "select * from mytable; slect * from myothertable" | mssql

    Results in:

    [[{"username":"patriksimek","password":"tooeasy"}],[{"id":15,"name":"Product name"}]]

    If you omit config path argument, mssql will try to load it from current working directory.

    Version

    2.0

    ## Geography and Geometry

    node-mssql has built-in serializer for Geography and Geometry CLR data types.

    select geography::STGeomFromText('LINESTRING(-122.360 47.656, -122.343 47.656 )'4326)
    select geometry::STGeomFromText('LINESTRING (100 100 10.3 12, 20 180, 180 180)'0)

    Results in:

    { srid: 4326,
      version: 1,
      points: [ { x: 47.656, y: -122.36 }, { x: 47.656, y: -122.343 } ],
      figures: [ { attribute: 1, pointOffset: 0 } ],
      shapes: [ { parentOffset: -1, figureOffset: 0, type: 2 } ],
      segments: [] }
      
    { srid: 0,
      version: 1,
      points: 
       [ { x: 100, y: 100, z: 10.3, m: 12 },
         { x: 20, y: 180, z: NaN, m: NaN },
         { x: 180, y: 180, z: NaN, m: NaN } ],
      figures: [ { attribute: 1, pointOffset: 0 } ],
      shapes: [ { parentOffset: -1, figureOffset: 0, type: 2 } ],
      segments: [] }
    ## Table-Valued Parameter (TVP)

    Supported on SQL Server 2008 and later. You can pass a data table as a parameter to stored procedure. First, we have to create custom type in our database.

    CREATE TYPE TestType AS TABLE ( a VARCHAR(50), b INT );

    Next we will need a stored procedure.

    CREATE PROCEDURE MyCustomStoredProcedure (@tvp TestType readonly) AS SELECT * FROM @tvp

    Now let's go back to our Node.js app.

    var tvp = new sql.Table()
     
    // Columns must correspond with type we have created in database.
    tvp.columns.add('a', sql.VarChar(50));
    tvp.columns.add('b', sql.Int);
     
    // Add rows
    tvp.rows.add('hello tvp', 777); // Values are in same order as columns.

    You can send table as a parameter to stored procedure.

    var request = new sql.Request();
    request.input('tvp', tvp);
    request.execute('MyCustomStoredProcedure', function(err, recordsets, returnValue) {
        // ... error checks
        
        console.dir(recordsets[0][0]); // {a: 'hello tvp', b: 777}
    });

    TIP: You can also create Table variable from any recordset with recordset.toTable().

    ## Promises

    You can retrieve a Promise when you omit a callback argument.

    var connection = new sql.Connection(config);
    connection.connect().then(function() {
        var request = new sql.Request(connection);
        request.query('select * from mytable').then(function(recordset) {
            // ...
        }).catch(function(err) {
            // ...
        });
    }).catch(function(err) {
        // ...
    });

    Native Promise is returned by default. You can easily change this with sql.Promise = require('myownpromisepackage').

    Version

    ## Errors

    There are three type of errors you can handle:

    • ConnectionError - Errors related to connections and connection pool.
    • TransactionError - Errors related to creating, commiting and rolling back transactions.
    • RequestError - Errors related to queries and stored procedures execution.
    • PreparedStatementError - Errors related to prepared statements.

    Those errors are initialized in node-mssql module and its original stack may be cropped. You can always access original error with err.originalError.

    SQL Server may generate more than one error for one request so you can access preceding errors with err.precedingErrors.

    Error Codes

    Each known error has code property.

    Type Code Description
    ConnectionError ELOGIN Login failed.
    ConnectionError ETIMEOUT Connection timeout.
    ConnectionError EDRIVER Unknown driver.
    ConnectionError EALREADYCONNECTED Database is already connected!
    ConnectionError EALREADYCONNECTING Already connecting to database!
    ConnectionError ENOTOPEN Connection not yet open.
    ConnectionError EINSTLOOKUP Instance lookup failed.
    ConnectionError ESOCKET Scoket error.
    ConnectionError ECONNCLOSED Connection is closed.
    TransactionError ENOTBEGUN Transaction has not begun.
    TransactionError EALREADYBEGUN Transaction has already begun.
    TransactionError EREQINPROG Can't commit/rollback transaction. There is a request in progress.
    TransactionError EABORT Transaction has been aborted.
    RequestError EREQUEST Message from SQL Server. Error object contains additional details.
    RequestError ECANCEL Canceled.
    RequestError ETIMEOUT Request timeout.
    RequestError EARGS Invalid number of arguments.
    RequestError EINJECT SQL injection warning.
    RequestError ENOCONN No connection is specified for that request.
    PreparedStatementError EARGS Invalid number of arguments.
    PreparedStatementError EINJECT SQL injection warning.
    PreparedStatementError EALREADYPREPARED Statement is already prepared.
    PreparedStatementError ENOTPREPARED Statement is not prepared.

    Detailed SQL Errors

    SQL errors (RequestError with err.code equal to EREQUEST) contains additional details.

    • err.number - The error number.
    • err.state - The error state, used as a modifier to the error number.
    • err.class - The class (severity) of the error. A class of less than 10 indicates an informational message. Detailed explanation can be found here.
    • err.lineNumber - The line number in the SQL batch or stored procedure that caused the error. Line numbers begin at 1; therefore, if the line number is not applicable to the message, the value of LineNumber will be 0.
    • err.serverName - The server name.
    • err.procName - The stored procedure name.
    ## Metadata

    Recordset metadata are accessible through the recordset.columns property.

    var request = new sql.Request();
    request.query('select convert(decimal(18, 4), 1) as first, \'asdf\' as second', function(err, recordset) {
        console.dir(recordset.columns);
        
        console.log(recordset.columns.first.type === sql.Decimal); // true
        console.log(recordset.columns.second.type === sql.VarChar); // true
    });

    Columns structure for example above:

    { first: { index: 0, name: 'first', length: 17, type: [sql.Decimal], scale: 4, precision: 18 },
      second: { index: 1, name: 'second', length: 4, type: [sql.VarChar] } }
    ## Data Types

    You can define data types with length/precision/scale:

    request.input("name", sql.VarChar, "abc");               // varchar(3)
    request.input("name", sql.VarChar(50), "abc");           // varchar(50)
    request.input("name", sql.VarChar(sql.MAX), "abc");      // varchar(MAX)
    request.output("name", sql.VarChar);                     // varchar(8000)
    request.output("name", sql.VarChar, "abc");              // varchar(3)
     
    request.input("name", sql.Decimal, 155.33);              // decimal(18, 0)
    request.input("name", sql.Decimal(10), 155.33);          // decimal(10, 0)
    request.input("name", sql.Decimal(10, 2), 155.33);       // decimal(10, 2)
     
    request.input("name", sql.DateTime2, new Date());        // datetime2(7)
    request.input("name", sql.DateTime2(5), new Date());     // datetime2(5)

    List of supported data types:

    sql.Bit
    sql.BigInt
    sql.Decimal ([precision], [scale])
    sql.Float
    sql.Int
    sql.Money
    sql.Numeric ([precision], [scale])
    sql.SmallInt
    sql.SmallMoney
    sql.Real
    sql.TinyInt
    
    sql.Char ([length])
    sql.NChar ([length])
    sql.Text
    sql.NText
    sql.VarChar ([length])
    sql.NVarChar ([length])
    sql.Xml
    
    sql.Time ([scale])
    sql.Date
    sql.DateTime

    sql.DateTimeOffset ([scale])
    sql.SmallDateTime
    
    sql.UniqueIdentifier
    
    sql.Binary
    sql.VarBinary ([length])
    sql.Image
    
    sql.UDT
    sql.Geography
    sql.Geometry
    

    To setup MAX length for VarChar, NVarChar and VarBinary use sql.MAX length.

    ## SQL injection

    This module has built-in SQL injection protection. Always use parameters to pass sanitized values to your queries.

    var request = new sql.Request();
    request.input('myval', sql.VarChar, '-- commented');
    request.query('select @myval as myval', function(err, recordset) {
        console.dir(recordset);
    });
    ## Verbose Mode

    You can enable verbose mode by request.verbose = true command.
