install

requierd modules

install the tds modul manually by copying the tds folder into the node_modules folder (npm coming soon) edit default.js, configure your database connection

module.exports = {

        ConnectionString : {
            /** database server */
            Server:'yourServer',

            /** database user's name */
            Login: 'yourUser',
            /** name of database to connect */
            Database: 'yourDatabase',
            /** database user's password */
            Password: 'yourPassword',
            /** database port */
            Port: 1433,
            /** socket-connection timeout */
            Timeout:10000
        },

        /** number of connections to use in connection pool
                0 will disable connection pooling
        */
        poolSize: 0,
        /** duration of node-pool timeout */
        poolIdleTimeout: 30000000,
        /** port on that the tds server is listen */
        tdsServerPort: 8888
    }
  1. open a commad shell
  2. navigate to your node folder (i.e. "c:\program files\nodejs\")
  3. cd node_modules
  4. cd tds4node
  5. start the tds server: node tds_server

normally tds_server listen at port 8888
to test your installation, start your browser and fire a simple request like:
http://localhost:8888/tds?select getdate() as d

on a working system the response of the example request looks like the following JSON data with the actual date:

{

    "result": [
        {
            "colData": [
                {
                    "value": "d",
                    "precision": null,
                    "scale": null,
                    "type": 61
                }
            ],
            "rows": [
                [
                    "2012-11-02T16:15:48.716Z"
                ]
            ],
            "outputParams": [ ],
            "returnStatus": null
        }
    ],
    "error": {
        "sqlErrNo": null,
        "message": ""
    }

}
