NodeJS

Post by drysg » Fri 30 Aug 2013 14:24

I have been a happy user of dotConnect for PostGRESQL. But we are moving from C#/.NET development for some of our lighter weight backend services, and we need a NodeJS connector for PostGRESQL. The open source stuff leaves a lot to be desired. https://github.com/brianc/node-postgres

NodeJS lets us do Rapid design by web designers with code sharing with the backend system. (JavaScript).

I suggest this as a business area for you, since I think your codebase could be leveraged for this community.

dotConnect for PostgreSQL is ADO.NET data provider and can be used on .NET Framework. Our roadmap does not include providers for NODE.JS.

Just in case I was not clear, or anyone else is looking for a possible path to connecting NodeJS code to a ADO.NET database.

1. Microsoft created an API for Microsoft SQL Server for NodeJS code writers:

2. You can Run .NET and Node.js code in-process with Edge.js = http://www.infoq.com/articles/the_edge_of_net_and_node

At the page you refer to the SQL Server Native Client 11.0 provider is used which is not a ADO.NET provider. dotConnect team roadmap includes only ADO.NET providers under .NET Framework.

If you can run .NET code with Node.js, then you can try using dotConnect Universal in this .NET code. We have not tested dotConnect Universal with Node.js code in-process with Edge.js, and cannot guarantee their compatibility.
