Connect NodeJS to Oracle--say what!?

posted by Ted on

I know what you're thinking--why would you want to use Oracle for your node backend when you have perfectly good options like mongo and the like? You know the old saying: "When in Rome, etc.". The business enterprise is quite likely Rome, and Rome likes its Oracle, baby.

My coding buddy Aaron Frost tamed this beast (to mix metaphors), so credit where it's due. I mostly watched and told him to use "sudo" in a couple of places. In this article we'll walk you through how he did it using one of two available drivers (as of this writing) to connect up your Node-acle beast under Linux. It's up to you to tame it. You up to it? Let's go!

BusterJs with RequireJs/Backbone

posted by Jake on

BusterJs is a still-in-beta library that allows for testing your Javascript. It's got a wealth of cool features. The browser capturing is awesome for running your Javascript directly in the browsers you choose from one runner. You can also execute within Node. In short, it rocks. But, how to get this rockin' with your project, specifically your AMD RequireJs with BackboneJs combo project is the lock that must be opened before daily buster love can be had.

Setup Public/Private Key

posted by Jake on

When you connect to a remote server, you're connecting over ssh or scp or a similar protocol. In each case, you may have to provide some authentication credentials to prove you are who you say you are. This can come in the form of a user/password combo, but if you're connecting a lot or if you're trying to setup a non-interactive connection, this can become either really monotonous or really problematic. Public/private keys will come to our rescue, and we'll never need to enter our password again.
