Promisfied Wrapper around @sap/hdbext

REUSE status

Description

With the standard @sap/hdbext you use nested events and callbacks like this:

let client = req.db;
client.prepare(
	`SELECT SESSION_USER, CURRENT_SCHEMA 
	    FROM "DUMMY"`,
	(err, statement) => {
		if (err) {
			return res.type("text/plain").status(500).send(`ERROR: ${err.toString()}`);
		}
		statement.exec([], (err, results) => {
			if (err) {
				return res.type("text/plain").status(500).send(`ERROR: ${err.toString()}`);
			} else {
				var result = JSON.stringify({
					Objects: results
				});
				return res.type("application/json").status(200).send(result);
			}
		});
		return null;
	});

However this module wraps the major features of @sap/hdbext in a ES6 class and returns promises. Therefore you could re-write the above block using the easier to read and maintain promise based approach. You just pass in an instance of the HANA Client @sap/hdbext module. In this example its a typical example that gets the HANA client as Express Middelware (req.db):

const dbClass = require("sap-hdbext-promisfied")
let db = new dbClass(req.db)
db.preparePromisified(`SELECT SESSION_USER, CURRENT_SCHEMA 
				            FROM "DUMMY"`)
	.then(statement => {
		db.statementExecPromisified(statement, [])
			.then(results => {
				let result = JSON.stringify({
					Objects: results
				})
				return res.type("application/json").status(200).send(result)
			})
			.catch(err => {
				return res.type("text/plain").status(500).send(`ERROR: ${err.toString()}`)
			})
	})
	.catch(err => {
		return res.type("text/plain").status(500).send(`ERROR: ${err.toString()}`)
	})

Or better yet if you are running Node.js 8.x or higher you can use the new AWAIT feature and the code is even more streamlined:

try {
	const dbClass = require("sap-hdbext-promisfied")
	let db = new dbClass(req.db);
	const statement = await db.preparePromisified(`SELECT SESSION_USER, CURRENT_SCHEMA 
				            							FROM "DUMMY"`)
	const results = await db.statementExecPromisified(statement, [])
	let result = JSON.stringify({
		Objects: results
	})
	return res.type("application/json").status(200).send(result)
} catch (e) {
	return res.type("text/plain").status(500).send(`ERROR: ${e.toString()}`)
}

There are even static helpers to load the HANA connection information from the environment (or local testing file like default-env.json or .env) and create the HANA client for you. We can adjust the above example for such a scenario:

try {
    const dbClass = require("sap-hdbext-promisfied")
    let db = new dbClass(await dbClass.createConnectionFromEnv(dbClass.resolveEnv(null)))
    const statement = await db.preparePromisified(`SELECT SESSION_USER, CURRENT_SCHEMA 
                                                     FROM "DUMMY"`)
    const results = await db.statementExecPromisified(statement, [])
    console.table(results)
} catch (e) {
    console.error(`ERROR: ${err.toString()}`)
}

Methods

The following @sap/hdbext functions are exposed as promise-based methods

prepare = preparePromisified(query)
statement.exec = statementExecPromisified(statement, parameters)
loadProcedure = loadProcedurePromisified(hdbext, schema, procedure)
storedProc = callProcedurePromisified(storedProc, inputParams)

We also have the simplified helper method to both prepare and execute a simple statement via one command:

execSQL(sql)

And finally there are static helpers

createConnectionFromEnv(envFile)
createConnection(options)
resolveEnv(options)
schemaCalc(options, db)
objectName(name)

Requirements / Download and Installation

npm config delete @sap:registry
  • Install the code sample as a reusable Node.js module
npm install -g sap-hdbext-promisfied

Or you can leverage this module by just listing as requirement in your own project's package.json.

Finally you can clone the repository from https://github.com/SAP-samples/hana-hdbext-promisified-example to study the source content and view the consumption examples (test.js)
