Understanding data sources Overview The diagram illustrates the relationship between LoopBack Model, DataSource, and Connector. Define the model. Create an instance of ModelBuilder or DataSource. DataSource extends from ModelBuilder. ModelBuilder is responsible for compiling model definitions to JavaScript constructors...
Building a connector LoopBack provides connectors for many popular relational and NoSQL databases as well as other backend data sources such as SOAP and REST services.
Connecting models to data sources Overview   LoopBack models connect to backend systems such as databases via data sources that provide create, retrieve, update, and delete (CRUD) functions. LoopBack also generalizes other backend services, such as REST APIs, SOAP web services, and storage services, and so on, as data sources. Data sources...
LoopBack data source connectors LoopBack connectors implement the data exchange logic to communicate with backend systems such as relational or NoSQL databases, or other REST, or SOAP API.
Data source generator Important: Before running this generator, you must create an application using the application generator. Then you must run the command from the root directory of the application. Synopsis Adds a new data source definition to a LoopBack application.
Database connectors overview LoopBack provides connectors for popular relational and NoSQL databases.
Discovering models from relational databases Overview LoopBack makes it simple to create models from an existing relational database. This process is called discovery and is supported by the following connectors: Cassandra MySQL Oracle PostgreSQL SQL Server IBM Cloudant IBM DB2 IBM DashDB IBM DB2...
Other connectors LoopBack supports a number of connectors to backend systems beyond databases.
