node-red-contrib-oracledb 0.5.1

Node-RED oracle database nodes

npm install node-red-contrib-oracledb

node-red-contrib-oracledb is a Node-RED package that connects directly to an Oracle database server. It currently contains a query and a configuration node to connect to Oracle databases for Node-RED storage.

It uses the oracledb library for the Oracle database connectivity.

Table of Contents


If you have installed Node-RED as a global node.js package (you use the command node-red anywhere to start it), you need to install node-red-contrib-oracledb as a global package as well:

$[sudo] npm install -g node-red-contrib-oracledb

If you have installed the .zip or cloned your own copy of Node-RED from github, you can install it as a normal npm package inside the Node-RED project directory:

<path/to/node-red>$ npm install node-red-contrib-oracledb


This is a Node-Red Oracle database input/output node. The function it provides depends on the query that is sent to the oracle database. An INSERT query stores data in the database and a SELECT query can send data to another node.
