MariaDB Connector for Node.js

About technology

One of MariaDB’s greatest strengths is its accessibility and ease-of-use across programming languages and stacks. Developers selecting MariaDB for their projects know that future changes to their application stack will not require rethinking their database selection. Whether it is C, C++, Java/JDBC, ODBC, .Net, Python, PHP or a host of other languages, developers can find the solution they need and focus on building the applications that bring value to their businesses. The latest such solution is the MariaDB Connector for Node.js, which includes a number of APIs to provide a streamlined method for application development and faster performance using standard SQL. When benchmarked against other popular Node.js drivers, the MariaDB Connector performed 1.7 times faster in query mode and 35 times faster in batch mode. This increase in performance stems from the Connector’s Insert Streaming and Pipelining functions. These capabilities reduce network traffic and enable asynchronous processing of database queries from a Node.js application, greatly increasing the efficiency of processing multiple database queries. The Connector provides access to the latest MariaDB database features, such as JSON functionality, temporal processing, advanced data protection and ease of access to data for reporting and analytics. Working with MariaDB’s standard SQL layer, developers can harness the full power of SQL by writing queries with the MariaDB Connector. The MariaDB Connector for Node.js and other MariaDB language connectors are released under the LGPL v2.1 license so that they can be freely embedded in application code.
