|Db2 drivers turning bits into information|
Db2 and Node.js or PythonDb2 supports many programming languages for database application development, a good overview is in the Db2 Knowledge Center. Node.js and Python use the open source drivers for IBM Database Servers that are available on GitHub.
- Last year, I blogged about the Python drivers and that IBM actually provides four different ones. The reason is that there are different Python APIs and frameworks, including SQLAlchemy and Django. Both of them feature their own ORM layer.
- For Node.js, a popular framework is Sails with its Waterline ORM. Db2 is a supported database. A popular Node.js API framework is Loopback by the IBM company Strongloop. The Db2 connector can be found in this GitHub repository. Sequelize is a promise-based ORM, the Db2 driver team has started adding support.
