Integration of “Oracle 11G R2” with “Node.js” in Ubuntu

Tags: oracle sudo echo
Node.js and Oracle database are very powerful tool for the development of any dependent system, But to provide incorporation between these two is always a challenge. I would like to share the procedure that could help anybody who is suffering from incorporation and integration of both systems. This piece of writing is going to cover :
  1. Installation of oracle java 7
  2. Installation of Oracle 11g R2
  3. Configure Oracle
  4. Installation of Node.js
  5. Use of node-oracle db plug-in to access oracleDB.
Let start!!!

1.Installation of oracle java 7

let’s start with oracle java installation of machine.                         sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java                         sudo apt-get update                         sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer After installing java you need to set JAVA_HOME in bashrc, Do the following to set it:                        sudo gedit /etc/bash.bashrc After opening this file add below lines after the last line of bashrc:                       export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-oracle                       export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH Load the changes by doing:                      source /etc/bash.bashrc Now check JAVA_HOME                     echo $JAVA_HOME It should be like:                   /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-oracle Here you are done with the Installation of oracle java 7 Now we’ll go for the installation of Oracle 11g 

2.Installation of Oracle 11g

Before starting the installation process there are some additional packages which are needed  to be install, They can be installed by :                         sudo apt-get install alien libaio1 unixodbc Once you are done with that you have to download oracle 11G from :               After download do the following:                      unzip                      cd Disk1 Now we have to convert “rpm” to “deb”, For that use the command below:                      sudo alien –scripts -d oracle-xe-11.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm The “/sbin/chkconfig file” is always needed by Red Hat package, which is not used in Ubuntu. To successfully install Oracle XE we use a simple trick.  First you need to create this file “/sbin/chkconfig” by using:                      sudo gedit /sbin/chkconfig Then you need to put below code in “chkconfig file”:                    #!/bin/bash                   # Oracle 11gR2 XE installer chkconfig hack for Ubuntu                       file=/etc/init.d/oracle-xe                       if [[ ! `tail -n1 $file | grep INIT` ]]; then                       echo >> $file                       echo ‘### BEGIN INIT INFO’ >> $file                       echo ‘# Provides: OracleXE’ >> $file                       echo ‘# Required-Start: $remote_fs $syslog’ >> $file                       echo ‘# Required-Stop: $remote_fs $syslog’ >> $file                       echo ‘# Default-Start: 2 3 4 5’ >> $file                       echo ‘# Default-Stop: 0 1 6’ >> $file                       echo ‘# Short-Description: Oracle 11g Express Edition’ >> $file                       echo ‘### END INIT INFO’ >> $file                        fi                       update-rc.d oracle-xe defaults 80 01                       #EOF Then you need to give permission to the file by:                        sudo chmod 755 /sbin/chkconfig Now you have to set the additional kernel parameters, So create the file                    /etc/sysctl.d/60-oracle.conf by :                    sudo gedit /etc/sysctl.d/60-oracle.conf Copy and paste the following into the file.“Kernel.shmmax” is the maximum possible value of physical RAM in bytes. 536870912 / 1024 /1024 = 512 MB.                    # Oracle 11g XE kernel parameters                        fs.file-max=6815744                       net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range=9000 65000                       kernel.sem=250 32000 100 128                       kernel.shmmax=536870912 Load the kernel parameters:                       sudo service procps start After this, execute the following statements to make further changes required:                      sudo ln -s /usr/bin/awk /bin/awk                      mkdir /var/lock/subsys                      touch /var/lock/subsys/listener Now run this command to install oracle 11G:                      sudo dpkg –install oracle-xe_11.2.0-2_amd64.deb Execute the following to avoid getting ORA-00845: MEMORY_TARGET error.  Note: replace “size=4096m” with the size of your (virtual) machine’s RAM in Mbs.                     sudo rm -rf /dev/shm                     sudo mkdir /dev/shm                     sudo mount -t tmpfs shmfs -o size=4096m /dev/shm Create the file “/etc/rc2.d/S01shm_load”                     sudo gedit /etc/rc2.d/S01shm_load Copy and paste the following in the file. Note: replace “size=4096m” with the size of your machine’s RAM in Mbs.                       #!/bin/sh                      case “$1” in                      start) mkdir /var/lock/subsys 2>/dev/null                      touch /var/lock/subsys/listener                      rm /dev/shm 2>/dev/null                      mkdir /dev/shm 2>/dev/null                      mount -t tmpfs shmfs -o size=4096m /dev/shm ;;                      *) echo error                      exit 1 ;;                     esac Save the file and close.                     sudo chmod 755 /etc/rc2.d/S01shm_load

3.Configuring oracle

After successful installation of Oracle you need to configure it, to configure use the command below:                   sudo /etc/init.d/oracle-xe configure Now you have to set environment variable just to set everything properly.                   sudo gedit /etc/bash.bashrc Paste below code at the end of “bashrc file”:                    export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/xe                    export ORACLE_SID=XE                    export NLS_LANG=`$ORACLE_HOME/bin/`                    export ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle                    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH                    export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH Now reload bashrc:                    source /etc/bash.bashrc Finally start the service:                   sudo service oracle-xe start Now your are done with oracle !!!! After successfully installing & configuring Oracle ,let’s start with nodejs. 

4.Installation of Node.js

Go to                        and download linux binaries 64 bit. After downloading create node directory on home by:                                  mkdir node And move  node gz to node folder:                                  mv ~/Downloads/node-v0.12.7-linux-x64.tar.gz   ~/node                                  cd ~/ node Unzip the file by:                                 tar -zvf node-v0.12.7-linux-x64.tar.gz After that you need to set node path to “bashrc” to access it globally, to do this use below command:                                sudo gedit /etc/bash.bashrc                               export PATH=/home/amit/node/node-v0.12.7-linux-x64/bin:$PATH Now try to access node command from terminal, it should work.                               node -v 

5.Use of node-oracledb plugin to access oracleDB

First of all you need to download node oracle driver from below URL:                         Unzip file into “node-oracledb” folder at home directory. Now you have to change directory to “node-oracledb-master” directory:                                  cd ~/node-oracledb/node-oracledb-master Before installing the driver you need to set below parameter into “bashrc” :                                  export OCI_LIB_DIR=$ORACLE_HOME/lib                                  export OCI_INC_DIR=$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/public As you are in node-oracledb-master directory, now you have to run below command to install all dependencies:                                  npm install -g Note : “-g” is for set it globally. Now NODE_PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH should be exported to “bashrc”.                                 export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH                                 export NODE_PATH=/home/amit/node/node-v0.12.7-linux-x64/lib/node_modules Here you are done, Now you can run nodejs code with oracle. There are several example available. You can refer                        . I hope you enjoy it.
