Just passing along that Node.js was released 12/12 for the IBM i.
Keep the enhancements coming......
Node.js on IBM i
An exciting new day has dawned. The latest in Open Source Technologies
for IBM i is now available. It was announced as part of the IBM i 7.1
TR9 and IBM I 7.2 TR1 RFA back in October and it reached GA today Dec
12! The Node.js engine is now available on IBM i. Since the announce in
October, I have received large number of requests asking for the
details. Seems there is a fair amount of interest in this new technology.
What is Node.js and Why do I care?
Long term, you will be able to reuse code across both environments. One
of the other huge benefits of Node.js, is its ability to work in a
non-blocking event driven environment. It provides a very lightweight
and efficient way to deal with data-intensive real time applications.
Now, for sure Node.js is not great for every situation. It is not all
that good at CPU intensive operations, that is why RPG was invented!
