Node.js Client

The Node.js Client is an independent component that InterSystems provides for use with InterSystems products. Currently this component is available only as part of the product installation, but InterSystems plans to make it available on an independent release schedule.


The Node.js Client, formerly called the Native API for Node.js, provides direct access to globals, the tree-based sparse arrays that form the basis of the InterSystems multidimensional storage model and underlie the object and SQL interfaces. The Native API exposes these native data structures, which provide very fast, flexible storage and retrieval. The Native API also includes the ability to call class methods and routines.

Available Versions

This component is available as part of the product installation for release 2019.2 and later for IRIS, IRIS for Health, and Health Connect.
