In article “Riding ExpressJs and Node.js to the Web,” you learned how to create a simple ExpressJs application complete with database access and a view layer. With this newfound knowledge, I thought it would be good to produce a tool for internal use that utilizes IBM’s ever-growing list of DB2 for i Services.
“Wow, that was significantly simpler than I thought it would be,” said no web programmer ever.
One of the primary uses of Node.js is for creating Web applications. When it comes to popular Web frameworks for Node.js, Expressjs.com is at the top of the list. In this article, I’ll show how to get up and running quickly with a simple app that displays a listing of customers and explain the various technologies involved along the way.
Recently I came across a scenario for a customer where I was asked, “How do we interact with our existing DDS-based, composite key, database tables?” That’s going to be a very common trait of most all IBM i shops using Ruby, and this article will cover some common situations you will come across as you use Ruby to interact with existing DB2 for i tables.

“Due Diligence” and “Risk Assessment” are phrases that should be running through your head anytime technology decisions are being made where new tooling or ideas are being put into production. The same is true when considering whether the Ruby language has a place in your shop – after-all, it is a significant change in direction when introducing a new language to your technology stack. What many people don’t know is the adoption of Ruby (and the Rails web framework) can be done in incremental fashion if that is what works best for you. What I mean by that is not only can you make use of your existing DB2 tables but also your significant investment in RPG code. How? Well, that’s what this article is all about. Let’s dive in.
