Change Log

node-oracledb v3.0.0-dev (DD Mon YYYY)

  • Added support for specifying the number of iterations to executeMany() instead of always requiring an input binds array. This is useful when there are no binds, or only OUT binds.

  • Eliminated a memory leak when fetching LOBs and more than one internal fetch occurs.

  • Removed the queueRequests property and altered the internal pool connection acquisition logic to work better with Oracle 18c pool changes. Now pool.getConnection() calls are always queued if the pool is fully in use.

  • Unused properties in objects such as the execute() result are no longer set. Previously some were set to undefined.

  • Change the binary package filename format from '...-node-vXX...' to to '...-node-abiXX...' to reduce Node version and ABI confusion.

  • Added binary installer proxy authentication support. Reuse npm config proxy. PR #919 (Cemre Mengu)

node-oracledb v2.3.0 (7 Jun 2018)

  • The stated compatibility is now for Node.js 6, 8, and 10 due to EOL of Node.js 4, and the release of Node 10.

  • Added support for heterogeneous connection pooling and for proxy support in connection pools. This allows each connection in the pool to use different database credentials.

  • Added support for Oracle Database Continuous Query Notifications, allowing JavaScript methods to be called when database changes are committed.

  • Added support to fetchAsString and fetchInfo for fetching RAW columns as STRING (hex-encoded).

  • Added Windows support for building binary packages for self-hosting on internal networks. PR #891 (Danilo Silva).

  • Eliminated a memory leak when binding LOBs as oracledb.BIND_INOUT.

  • Added an error message indicating that batchErrors and dmlRowCounts can only be used with INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE and MERGE statements.

  • Fixed a bug that caused queryStream() to emit multiple close events in Node.js 10.

  • Fixed a crash when getting the list of names for an undefined object with Node.js 6.

  • Remove deprecated Buffer() function in tests in order to eliminate a deprecation warning with Node.js 10.

  • Upgraded NAN dependency from 2.8 to 2.10.

  • Made some internal changes to fix NAN 2.10 deprecations: Replaced v8::String::Utf8Value with Nan::Uft8String. Replaced MakeCallback() with runInAsyncScope().

  • Mention that queueRequests is deprecated and will be removed in a future version; connection pool queuing will always be enabled in that future version.

node-oracledb v2.2.0 (3 Apr 2018)

  • Added oracledb.oracleClientVersionString and connection.oracleServerVersionString to complement the existing numeric properties.

  • Added oracledb.edition to support Edition-Based Redefinition. This removes the need to use an ALTER SESSION command or ORA_EDITION environment variable.

  • Added oracledb.events to allow the Oracle client library to receive Oracle Database service events, such as FAN and RLB events. This removes the need to use an oraaccess.xml file to enable event handling.

  • Added connection.changePassword() for changing passwords, and also added support for changing the password during oracledb.getConnection().

  • Added connection.executeMany() for efficient batch DML (e.g. INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE) and PL/SQL execution with multiple records.

  • Added connection.getStatementInfo() to find information about a SQL statement without executing it.

  • Added connection.ping() to support system health checks.

  • Added support for binding RAW types into Buffers in DML RETURNING statements.

  • Created GitHub 'pages' for hosting documentation. See:

  • Simplified the binary installer messages to reduce user uncertainty.

  • Improved the text for the NJS-045 runtime loader failure error.

  • Made the implementations of connection.close() and pool.close() the primary code paths in place of their respective aliases connection.release() and pool.terminate().

  • An empty object for fetchInfo no longer produces an error.

  • Updated database abstraction layer to ODPI-C 2.3

  • Fixed compilation warnings on Windows.

  • Updated the node-oracledb implementation to replace V8 deprecations.

node-oracledb v2.1.2 (21 Feb 2018)

  • Fixed regression with end-to-end tracing attributes not being set.

  • Fix binary installer proxy 403 (Bruno Jouhier)

node-oracledb v2.1.1 (16 Feb 2018)

node-oracledb v2.1.0 (15 Feb 2018)

  • Added support for privileged standalone connections: SYSDBA, SYSOPER, SYSASM, SYSBACKUP, SYSDG, SYSKM, and SYSRAC

  • Improved the Error object with new errorNum and offset properties for Oracle errors.

  • Added new versionString and versionSuffix attributes to aid showing node-oracledb version and release status.

  • Added connectionString as an alias for connectString in oracledb.createPool() and oracledb.getConnection() (Sagie Gur-Ari).

  • Updated the ODPI-C layer:

    • Eliminate DPI-1054 errors, allowing connections to be closed when ResultSets and Lobs are open.
    • Avoid unnecessary roundtrips for rollbacks at connection close.
  • Replaced obsolete NAN API calls in internal implementation and fixed other static analysis warnings. This means node-oracledb 2.1 no longer builds with Node.js 0.10 or Node.js 0.12.

  • Improved queryStream() streaming:

    • Add support for the Stream destroy() method available with Node 8.

    • Simplified the internal implementation by reusing ResultSet.getRow().

    • Fixed some timing and race issues.

    • Made sure the 'close' event is emitted after the 'end' event.

  • Simplified query direct fetch implementation and improved performance by reusing ResultSet code.

  • Exceptions are no longer raised when accessing attributes on closed Connections, Pools, Lobs or ResultSets.

  • ResultSets are now closed on error to free resources earlier.

  • Improved NJS-010 message content by adding the position and invalid data type number.

  • Fixed support for integers that are larger than Node.js's 32-bit integer is capable of handling.

  • Updated INSTALL to mention:

  • Correct the error message text when attempting to set oracledb.oracleClientVersion.

node-oracledb v2.0.15 (15 Dec 2017) changes since node-oracledb version 1

  • Release testing is now done for Node.js 4, 6, 8 and 9.

  • Node-oracledb now uses the ODPI-C database abstraction library.

  • Upgraded NAN build dependency to 2.8.

  • Installation has significantly improved. Some pre-built binaries are available for convenience, or the add-on can be continue to built from source code. Refer to INSTALL.

    • Added utilities to /package for building binaries for distribution, and for installing them.

    • When building from source code:

      • Oracle header files are no longer needed.
      • The OCI_LIB_DIR and OCI_INC_DIR environment variables are not needed.
    • A single node-oracledb binary now works with any of the Oracle 11.2, 12.1 or 12.2 clients. This improves portability when the node-oracledb add-on is copied between machines. Applications should be tested with their target environment to make sure expected Oracle functionality is available.

    • At run time, users of macOS must put the Oracle client libraries in ~/lib or /usr/local/lib. Linux users of Instant Client RPMs must always set LD_LIBRARY_PATH or use ldconfig - the previous RPATH linking option is not available. Other Linux users should continue to use LD_LIBRARY_PATH or ldconfig. Windows users should continue to put Oracle client libraries in PATH.

    • On non-Windows platforms, if Oracle client libraries are not located in the system library search path (e.g. LD_LIBRARY_PATH), then node-oracledb attempts to use libraries in $ORACLE_HOME/lib.

    • A new Troubleshooting section was add to INSTALL.

    • Improvements were made to require('oracledb') failure messages to help users resolve problems.

    • Changed the installation message prefix in binding.gyp from 'node-oracledb' to 'oracledb'.

  • Improved query handling:

    • Enhanced direct fetches to allow an unlimited number of rows to be fetched. This occurs when oracledb.maxRows = 0

    • Changed the default value of oracledb.maxRows to 0, meaning unlimited.

    • Replaced prefetchRows (used for internal fetch buffering and tuning) with a new property fetchArraySize. This affects direct fetches, ResultSet getRow() and queryStream().

    • getRows(numRows,...) internal fetch buffering is now only tuned by the numRows value.

    • Implemented getRow() in JavaScript for better performance.

  • Tightened up checking on in-use ResultSets and Lobs to avoid leaks and threading issues by making sure the application has closed them before connections can be closed. The error DPI-1054 may now be seen if connections are attempted to be closed too early.

  • Added support for fetching columns types LONG (as String) and LONG RAW (as Buffer). There is no support for streaming these types, so the value stored in the database may not be able to be completely fetched if Node.js and V8 memory limits are reached.

  • Added support for TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE date type. These are mapped to a Date object in node-oracledb using LOCAL TIME ZONE. The TIME ZONE component is not available in the Date object.

  • Added support for ROWID data type. Data is fetched as a String.

  • Added support for UROWID data type. Data is fetched as a String.

  • Added query support for NCHAR and NVARCHAR2 columns. Note binding these types for DML may not insert data correctly, depending on the database character set and the database national character set.

  • Added query support for NCLOB columns. NCLOB data can be streamed or fetched as String. Note binding NCLOB for DML may not insert data correctly, depending on the database character set and the database national character set.

  • Removed node-oracledb size restrictions on LOB fetchAsString and fetchAsBuffer queries, and also on LOB binds. Node.js memory restrictions will still prevent large LOBs being manipulated in single chunks.

  • In LOB binds, the bind val can now be a String when type is CLOB, and val can now be a Buffer when type is BLOB.

  • Improved validation for invalid attribute and parameter values.

  • The error parameter of function callbacks is now always null if no error occurred.

  • Database error messages no longer have an extra newline.

  • Statements that generate errors are now dropped from the statement cache. Applications running while table definitions change will no longer end up with unusable SQL statements due to stale cache entries. Note that Oracle best-practice is never to change table definitions while applications are executing.

  • Prevent use of NaN with Oracle numbers to avoid data corruption.

  • For LOB streaming, make sure 'close' is the very last event, and doesn't occur before an 'error' event.

  • Fix duplicate 'close' event for error conditions when streaming LOBs in Node 8.

  • connection.createLob() now uses Oracle Call Interface's (OCI) underlying 'cache' mode.

  • Lob.close() now marks LOBs invalid immediately rather than during the asynchronous portion of the close() method, so that all other attempts are no-ops.

  • Relaxed the restriction preventing oracledb.connnectionClass being used with dedicated connections; it previously gave ORA-56609. Now DRCP can now be used with dedicated connections but the CLIENT_DRIVER value in V$SESSION_CONNECT_INFO will not be set in this case. The recommendation is still to use a session pool when using DRCP.

  • Fixed a crash with LOB out binds in DML RETURNING statements when the number of rows returned exceeds the number of rows originally allocated internally.

  • Empty arrays can now be used in PL/SQL Collection Associative Array (Index-by) binds.

  • Some NJS and DPI error messages and numbers have changed. This is particularly true of DPI errors due to the use of ODPI-C.

  • Many new tests have been created.

  • Updated examples for new functionality.

  • Documentation has been updated and improved.

node-oracledb v2.0.15 (15 Dec 2017)

  • The stated compatibility is now for Node.js 4, 6, 8 and 9.

  • Improved query handling:

    • Enhanced direct fetches to allow an unlimited number of rows to be fetched. This occurs when oracledb.maxRows = 0

    • Changed the default value of oracledb.maxRows to 0, meaning unlimited.

    • Replaced prefetchRows (used for internal fetch buffering and tuning) with a new property fetchArraySize. This affects direct fetches, ResultSet getRow() and queryStream().

    • getRows(numRows,...) internal fetch buffering is now only tuned by the numRows value.

    • Implemented getRow() in JavaScript for better performance.

    • Moved operations on REF CURSORS out of the main thread in order to improve performance and memory usage.

  • Fixed proxy support in the binary installer.

  • Ensured the callback error parameter is null, not undefined, when no error occurred.

  • Improvements were made to require('oracledb') failure messages to help users resolve installation and usage problems.

  • Fixed compiler deprecation warnings regarding Nan::ForceSet.

node-oracledb v2.0.14 Development (20 Nov 2017)

  • Added infrastructure to /package for creating binary installs. Updated INSTALL.md.

  • Improved validation for invalid attribute and parameter values.

  • In LOB binds, the bind "val" can now be a String when "type" is CLOB, and "val" can now be a Buffer when "type" is BLOB.

  • Changed binding.gyp message prefix from 'node-oracledb' to 'oracledb'.

  • Fix compiler warning with va_start

  • Eliminate memory leak when processing result sets containing LOBs that require more than one fetch operation (regression from v1).

  • Move fetch buffer allocation to reduce memory use for Result Sets (regression from v1).

  • Upgraded NAN dependency from 2.5 to 2.8.

  • Updated ODPI-C submodule:

    • Reinstate safe size limit for LOB bind to PL/SQL (node-oracledb regression from v1).
    • Fix valgrind byte overrun when loading libclntsh from $ORACLE_HOME.
    • Do not prevent connections from being explicitly closed when a fatal error has taken place.
    • Eliminate race condition on initialization. Add finalization code.
    • Eliminate use of OCI wrappers for use of mutexes, which improves performance (now uses native threading, e.g. pthreads).
    • Prevent use of NaN with Oracle numbers to avoid data corruption.
    • Prevent ORA-1010 during connection ping to pre 10g Oracle Database.
    • Improve debug trace output format.
    • Prevent crash for DML RETURNING of variables that require dynamic binding.
  • Updated examples to avoid "DPI-1054: connection cannot be closed when open statements or LOBs exist" and to avoid duplicate callbacks on stream errors.

  • Check for JavaScript exceptions and if one is found, ensure that the error is passed correctly to the callback and is not raised when the C++ method has finished.

  • Added code to handle invalid object properties.

  • Make sure 'close' is the very last event, and doesn't occur before an 'error' event. Also emit 'close' after 'error' event for queryStream()

  • Changed default sample connect string to "localhost/orclpdb" which is the Oracle Database 12.2 default for pluggable databases.

  • Moved NJS code from /src/njs/src to /src to remove obsolete directory nesting.

  • Perform error cleanup as soon as possible in order to avoid possible race conditions when errors take place.

  • Move operations on REF CURSORS out of the main thread in order to improve performance and memory usage.

  • Relaxed the restriction preventing oracledb.connnectionClass being used with dedicated connections; it previously gave ORA-56609. Now DRCP can now be used with dedicated connections but the CLIENT_DRIVER value in V$SESSION_CONNECT_INFO will not be set in this case. The recommendation is still to use a session pool when using DRCP.

  • Tighten up checking on in-use ResultSets and Lobs to avoid leaks and threading issues by making sure the application has closed them before connections can be closed. The error DPI-1054 may now be seen if connections are attempted to be closed too early.

  • On Windows, disable ODPI-C thread cleanup to resolve a thread timing issue, since Node.js creates all threads at startup and never terminates them.

  • Added extra message text to NJS-045 to give potential causes for require('oracledb') failures when the ODPI-C layer can't detect the issue.

  • Updated ODPI-C submodule: various changes including improved initialization error messages, and runtime-enabled debug tracing.

  • Fix duplicate 'close' event for error conditions when streaming Lobs in Node 8.

  • Fix LOB streaming 'close' and 'end' event order (regression from v1).

  • Fixed crash with LOB out binds in DML RETURNING statements when the number of rows returned exceeds the number of rows originally allocated internally.

  • Improve handling of invalid externalAuth, fetchAsString, and fetchAsBuffer attribute values.

  • Fix support for connectionClass (regression from v1).

node-oracledb v2.0.13 Development (19 Jun 2017)

  • Node-oracledb now uses the ODPI-C database abstraction library.

  • Installation instructions have changed. Refer to INSTALL. Distribution is still via source code.

    Oracle header files are no longer needed. The OCI_LIB_DIR and OCI_INC_DIR environment variables are not needed.

    At run time, Oracle 11.2, 12.1 or 12.2 client libraries should still be in PATH (for Windows) or LD_LIBRARY_PATH (for Linux) or similar platform library loading path. Users of macOS must put the Oracle client libraries in ~/lib or /usr/local/lib. Linux users of Instant Client RPMs must always set LD_LIBRARY_PATH or use ldconfig - the previous RPATH linking option is not available.

    On non-Windows platforms, if Oracle client libraries are not located in the system library search path (e.g. LD_LIBRARY_PATH), then node-oracledb attempts to use libraries in $ORACLE_HOME/lib.

    A single node-oracledb binary now works with any of the Oracle client 11.2, 12.1 or 12.2 libraries. This improves portability when node-oracledb builds are copied between machines.

  • Lob.close() now marks LOBs invalid immediately rather than during the asynchronous portion of the close() method, so that all other attempts are no-ops.

  • Incorrect application logic in version 1 that attempted to close a connection while certain LOB, ResultSet or other database operations were still occurring gave an NJS-030, NJS-031 or NJS-032 "connection cannot be released" error. Now in version 2 the connection will be closed but any operation that relied on the connection being open will fail.

  • Some NJS and DPI error messages and numbers have changed. This is particularly true of DPI errors due to the use of ODPI-C.

  • Stated compatibility is now for Node.js 4, 6 and 8.

  • Added support for fetching columns types LONG (as String) and LONG RAW (as Buffer). There is no support for streaming these types, so the value stored in the DB may not be able to be completely fetched if Node.js and V8 memory limits are reached.

  • Added support for TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE date type. These are mapped to a Date object in node-oracledb using LOCAL TIME ZONE. The TIME ZONE component is not available in the Date object.

  • Added support for ROWID data type. Data is fetched as a String.

  • Added support for UROWID data type. Data is fetched as a String.

  • Added query support for NCHAR and NVARCHAR2 columns. Binding for DML may not insert data correctly, depending on the database character set and the database national character set.

  • Added query support for NCLOB columns. NCLOB data can be streamed or fetched as String. Binding for DML may not insert data correctly, depending on the database character set and the database national character set.

  • Removed node-oracledb size restrictions on LOB fetchAsString and fetchAsBuffer queries, and also on LOB binds. Node.js and V8 memory restrictions will still prevent large LOBs being manipulated in single chunks.

  • Statements that generate errors are now dropped from the statement cache. Applications running while table definitions change will no longer end up with unusable SQL statements due to stale cache entries. Note that Oracle best-practice is never to change table definitions while applications are executing.

  • Empty arrays can now be used in PL/SQL Collection Associative Array (Index-by) binds.

  • connection.createLob() now uses OCI's underlying 'cache' mode.

  • Database errors no longer have an extra newline.

  • Upgraded NAN dependency from 2.5 to 2.6.

node-oracledb v1.13.1 (12 Apr 2017)

  • Fix regression with NULL values to PL/SQL procedures with multiple parameters.

node-oracledb v1.13.0 (15 Mar 2017)

  • Added support for fetching BLOBs as Buffers, using fetchAsBuffer and fetchInfo.

  • Improved PL/SQL Index-by array binding error messages based on PR #470 (Hariprasad Kulkarni).

  • Fixed several crashes and a memory leak using CLOBs with fetchAsString.

  • Fixed several issues including a crash using NULLs and empty strings for LOB BIND_INOUT binds.

  • Automatically clean up sessions in the connection pool when they become unusable after an ORA-56600 occurs.

  • Updated NAN dependency from 2.4 to 2.5.

node-oracledb v1.12.2 (21 Dec 2016)

  • Fix memory allocation with Oracle 11g client libraries when querying CLOBs using fetchAsString and fetchInfo.

node-oracledb v1.12.1 Development (16 Dec 2016)

  • Added support for fetching CLOBs as Strings, using fetchAsString and fetchInfo.

  • Added BIND_INOUT support for temporary LOBs.

node-oracledb v1.12.0 Development (3 Dec 2016)

  • Significantly enhanced LOB support:

    • Added BIND_IN support for DML
    • Added BIND_IN, BIND_OUT, BIND_INOUT support for PL/SQL
    • Added a connection.createLob() method to create temporary LOBs
    • Added a lob.close() method
    • Made enhancements to allow binding String or Buffer data as STRING or BUFFER to LOB database types
    • Writeable LOB Streams now conclude with a 'close' event
  • Added a connection pool 'ping' feature controlled with oracledb.poolPingInterval and a corresponding createPool() option. This validates pooled connections when they are returned from a getConnection() call. Values are:

    • zero: always ping for every pooled getConnection()
    • negative: never ping
    • positive: time in seconds the connection must be idle in the pool before getConnection() does a ping. Default is 60 seconds

    The setting is a no-op when node-oracledb is built with Oracle Database 12.2 client libraries, where a new, lower-level OCI feature provides an always-on, lightweight connection check.

  • Upgraded NAN dependency from 2.3 to 2.4.

  • Stated compatibility is now for Node.js 0.12, 4, 6 and 7.

  • Fixed return value of the DATE type bound as BIND_INOUT.

  • Fixed passing NULL values bound as BIND_INOUT for several data types.

  • Fixed compilation warnings with newer Node.js versions due to V8 deprecations.

  • Fixed some Windows and OS X compilation warnings.

  • Linted JavaScript files, standardizing code, example and test files.

  • Updated various examples and created new ones.

  • Updated README.md and api.md introductory examples, based on a patch proposed by Leigh Schrandt.

  • Updated README.md thanks to Nick Heiner.

  • Updated documentation links to point to the Oracle Database 12.2 documentation.

  • Made some internal changes to the DPI layer to avoid name space collisions and fix session tagging. These are not visible / exposed through node-oracledb.

node-oracledb v1.11.0 (19 Aug 2016)

  • Added a connection pool cache feature allowing pools to have aliases and be more easily used.

  • Improved the bootstrap error message when the node-oracledb binary cannot be loaded.

  • Fixed memory leaks with DATE and TIMESTAMP bind values.

  • Fixed external authentication which broke in 1.10.

  • Fixed metadata scale and precision values on AIX.

  • Made an internal change to replace std::string.data() with std::string.c_str().

  • Made an internal change to remove an unused parameter from the NJS_SET_EXCEPTION macro.

node-oracledb v1.10.1 (21 Jul 2016)

  • Fixed a bug that prevented a null value being passed from JavaScript into an IN OUT bind.

  • Fixed a memory leak introduced in 1.10 with REF CURSORs.

  • Fixed a memory leak in error handling paths when using REF CURSORs.

  • Made an internal change for queries selecting unsupported column types allowing them to report an error earlier.

  • Made an internal change to use std::string& for string lengths.

  • Fixed a compilation warning on Windows.

  • Added a mocha configuration file for the test suite.

node-oracledb v1.10.0 (8 Jul 2016)

  • Enhanced query and REF CURSOR metadata is available when a new oracledb.extendedMetaData or execute() option extendedMetaData property is true. (Leonardo Olmi).

  • Fixed an issue preventing the garbage collector cleaning up when a query with LOBs is executed but LOB data isn't actually streamed.

  • Fixed a bug where an error event could have been emitted on a QueryStream instance prior to the underlying ResultSet having been closed. This would cause problems if the user tried to close the connection in the error event handler as the ResultSet could have prevented it.

  • Fixed a bug where the public close() method was invoked on the ResultSet instance that underlies the QueryStream instance if an error occurred during a call to getRows(). The public method would have thrown an error had the QueryStream instance been created from a ResultSet instance via the toQueryStream() method. Now the underlying C++ layer's close() method is invoked directly.

  • Updated Pool._logStats() to throw an error instead of printing to the console if the pool is not valid.

  • Report an error earlier when a named bind object is used in a bind-by-position context. A new error NJS-044 is returned. Previously errors like ORA-06502 were given.

  • Added GitHub Issue and Pull Request templates.

  • Some enhancements were made to the underlying DPI data access layer. These are not exposed to node-oracledb users.

    • Allow SYSDBA connections
    • Allow session tagging
    • Allow the character set and national character set to be specified via parameters to the DPI layer.
    • Support heterogeneous pools (in addition to existing homogeneous pools)

node-oracledb v1.9.3 (24 May 2016)

  • Fix error with OCI_ERROR_MAXMSG_SIZE2 when building with Oracle client 11.2.0.1 and 11.2.0.2.

node-oracledb v1.9.2 (23 May 2016)

  • Fix results.metaData for queries with {resultSet: true}.

node-oracledb v1.9.1 (18 May 2016)

  • Upgraded to NAN 2.3 for Node 6 support.

  • Added a persistent reference to JavaScript objects during Async operations to prevent crashes due to premature garbage collection.

  • Added a persistent reference to the internal Lob buffer to prevent premature garbage collection.

  • Fixed memory leaks when using ResultSets.

  • Fixed memory leak with the Pool queue timer map.

  • Fixed memory release logic when querying LOBs and an error occurs.

  • Improved some null pointer checking.

  • Altered some node-oracledb NJS-xyz error message text for consistency.

  • Improved validation for fetchInfo usage.

  • Increased the internal buffer size for Oracle Database error messages.

  • Call pause() internally when closing a query Stream with _close().

  • Fixed a symbol redefinition warning for DATA_BLOB when compiling on Windows.

  • The test suite is no longer installed with npm install oracledb. The tests remain available in GitHub.

node-oracledb v1.9.0 Development (19 Apr 2016)

  • Added Promise support. All asynchronous functions can now return promises. By default the standard Promise library is used for Node 0.12, 4 and 5. This can be overridden.

  • Added a toQueryStream() method for ResultSets, letting REF CURSORS be transformed into Readable Streams.

  • Added an experimental query Stream _close() method. It allows query streams to be closed without needing to fetch all the data. It is not for production use.

  • Added aliases pool.close() and connection.close() for pool.terminate() and connection.release() respectively.

  • Some method parameter validation checks, such as the number or types of parameters, will now throw errors synchronously instead of returning errors via the callback.

  • Removed an extra call to getRows() made by queryStream() at end-of-fetch.

  • Some random crashes caused by connections being garbage collected while still in use should no longer occur.

  • Regularized NJS error message capitalization.

node-oracledb v1.8.0 (24 Mar 2016)

  • Added connection.queryStream() for returning query results using a Node Readable Stream (Sagie Gur-Ari).

  • Connection strings requesting DRCP server can now only be used with a node-oracledb connection pool. They will give ORA-56609 when used with oracledb.getConnection().

  • Set the internal driver name to node-oracledb : 1.8.0. This is visible to DBAs, for example in V$SESSION_CONNECT_INFO.

  • Added up-time to pool queue statistics.

  • Fixed creation of Windows debug builds.

  • Bumped NAN dependency to NAN 2.2.

  • Added .editorconfig file (Sagie Gur-Ari).

  • Improved test date and time checks (Antonio Bustos).

  • Improved some parameter checks for maxArraySize and maxSize.

node-oracledb v1.7.1 (1 Mar 2016)

  • Made public methods over-writable in the new JavaScript layer

node-oracledb v1.7.0 (29 Feb 2016)

  • Added a JavaScript wrapper around the C++ API to allow for easier extension.

  • Added a connection pool queue configured with queueRequests and queueTimeout attributes. The queue is enabled by default.

  • Added connection pool option attribute _enableStats and method pool._logStats() to display pool and queue statistics. Note: these may change in future.

  • Added "bind by position" syntax for PL/SQL Index-by array binds (Dieter Oberkofler).

  • Allowed node-oracledb class instances to be tested with 'instanceof'.

  • Fixed some bind issues when bind values are not set by the database.

  • Replaced internal usage of info.This() with info.Holder() for Node.js 0.10.

  • Fixed some compilation warnings with some Windows compilers.

node-oracledb v1.6.0 (30 Jan 2016)

  • Added support for binding PL/SQL Collection Associative Array (Index-by) types containing numbers and strings (Dieter Oberkofler).

  • Fixed a LOB problem causing an uncaught error to be generated.

  • Removed the 'close' event that was incorrectly emitted for LOB Writable Streams. The Node.js Streams documentation specifies it only for Readable Streams.

  • Updated the LOB examples to show connection release.

  • Updated README so first-time users see pre-requisites earlier.

  • Extended the OS X install instructions with a way to install that doesn't need root access for Instant Client 11.2 on El Capitan.
