Introduction to the Native SDK for Node.js
The InterSystems Native SDK for Node.js is a lightweight interface to powerful InterSystems IRIS® resources that were once available only through ObjectScript:
Work with Global Arrays — directly access globals, the tree-based sparse arrays used to implement the InterSystems multidimensional storage model.
Use InterSystems Transactions and Locking — use Native SDK implementations of embedded language transactions and locking methods to work with InterSystems databases.
InterSystems also supports Node.js relational access. The node-odbc open source Node.js module is supported on both Windows and UNIX® based systems. See “Support for Node.js Relational Access” in Using the InterSystems ODBC Driver for details.
Versions of the Native SDK are also available for Java, .NET, and Python:
The following book is highly recommended for developers who want to master the full power of globals:
Using Globals — describes how to use globals in ObjectScript, and provides more information about how multidimensional storage is implemented on the server.
