Hi and thanks all


I am discouraged ..

with inspector i can't debug my source, with VS neither,, i have tried to install REPL (npm install node-repl -g) but when i run "node-repl server.js" i receive "node-repl: not found" ?? i have exhausted all<http://context.reverso.net/traduzione/inglese-italiano/they+have+exhausted+all> options ..

pheraps ibm released PTF for inspector problem or are there other options ?

Thanks in advance

Hi Kevin,

I wanted to clarify something...

VS Code is running your app locally on your PC, so it can't load stuff
that resides in your IBMi IFS.

What's important to note/contrast is VSCode is using the Node.js runtime on
your local PC and ~not~ the IBM i Node.js runtime. Further, this means you
~can~ load the source from the IFS via mapped drive**, but it will be run
in the local PC's Node.js runtime. In John's case it couldn't resolve path
/QOpenSys... which can be fixed. What ~can't~ be fixed is that the Node.js
DB2 adapter/driver is a native extension (compiled for PASE SQL CLIs on IBM
i). So even after resolving the path, it still most likely won't work.

The next question might be "What if I run Node.js v6.9.1 on both my local
PC and IBM i and don't use the native IBM i Node.js DB2 adapter/driver,
will I still have issues?" The answer is "it depends". For example, some
npms call out to OS file system commands/APIs (i.e futime) and not all of
those exist on IBM i. This means that it could work on your local PC while
in development but fail once deployed to production on IBM i. It's worth
nothing that some npms are only required during development so this isn't
an issue (i.e. devDependencies in package.json). The short answer is you
should also use the production Node.js runtime for your development Node.js
runtime to save from surprises. What I do is use the VSCode debugger in
small scenarios where I need to figure out what is going on and then I move
back to using the IBM i Node.js runtime for development once the issue has
been resolved.

** I use SSHFS. Learn more here: http://krengel.tech/mcpress-edit-ifs-files

I hope what I said makes sense.

You missed the bit earlier in the email trail that said that this option
is only possible if your code is platform agnostic. Yours is not because
it is trying to load IBMi code from the IFS. VS Code is running your app

You would need to have copies of this stuff within your project and
load/require it from there.

Make sure you are using VS Code (not VS). The two are completely
different.

When you are using the debug option you are running the code within VS -
it prompts you to create a profile to describe how it should launch the
application (i.e. which module to run). You don't need a browser for
debugging. You only need that if your application is a browser-based
application, so you would use the browser to interact with your app.

You'd be much better off following a VS Code debugging tutorial than
asking on here.

We also use VS Code for debugging. It is a very easy debugging
environment.

I use VS code for debugging because our stuff is generally platform
agnostic. We also use winston for logging - so you can output debug logs
when running in debug mode that don't clutter logs in prod mode.

Hi John,

Debugging Node.js can be done in a variety of fashions. Here's what I
currently do...

- REPL. The Node.js REPL is great for quickly testing smaller chunks
of code in PASE. I use this frequently to test my iterations of
formulating the correct parm lists for calling RPG programs.

- console.log(). Not ideal, but it works.

- If the code is platform agnostic then you can use the VSCode step
debugger (note this will eventually work for Node.js in PASE once IBM
addresses the node-inspector issue).

- Certain web frameworks have debug output capabilities while in
development mode. For example, ExpressJs debugging
