Announcing the release of node-oracledb 1.12.2
The node-oracledb driver connects Node.js to Oracle Database for fast and functional applications.
This release allows LOBs to be handled as Node.js Strings and Buffers, adding performance and ease of use. Larger LOBs can still be streamed to limit Node.js memory use. https://github.com/oracle/node-oracledb/blob/master/doc/api.md#lobhandling
Also added was a connection pool ping feature, improving the availability of applications. This allows idle, broken connections to be silently re-established ready for the next user. https://github.com/oracle/node-oracledb/blob/master/doc/api.md#connpoolpinging
Various other enhancements and bug fixes also landed.
