Hi,

Our application development team are currently trying out node.js (v6) as a proof of concept on our IBM i, but have hit a number of problems already with accessing local DB2 tables using the (new) DB2 toolkit functions.

Is anybody else trying it out and encountering the the sort of problems we have been, which are such things as...


1. Intermittent memory fault/core dump errors on repeated fetches.

2. Truncation occurring when retrieving the contents of text columns > 1024 characters.

3. Intermittent failure and error 'SQLSTATE=22504 SQLCODE=-191 Mixed data or UTF-8 data not properly formed.' when inserting a row into a table with an empty string ('') value for a text column.

The developer has had to do workarounds for the issues he's found, but they aren't ideal. Some involve having to use blocking functions instead of non-blocking.

I've opened PMRs for all of these which are being looked at but was wondering what others experiences have been and whether we are just unlucky, possibly doing something wrong, or others have found the same.

I'm trying to advocate IBM i as being the right platform to use for these sort of projects since 5733OPS was made available, but it's getting harder to justify with each issue that's found.

Thanks,

Mark.
