Hi All,

I am facing issue while installing oracle loopback connector.
I set the Path variable and ran install command.

Please find below error logs below:

This part of your output would appear to be the root cause:

loopback-connector-oracle@4.0.2: wanted: {"node":">=6.0.0"} (cur
rent: {"node":"4.4.7","npm":"2.15.8"})

IIB is providing Node.js at v4.4.7 but the minimum level for oracle loopback connector is v6.

Could you not interface to Oracle via supported JDBC / ODBC connections.

Thanks martinb. We have installed latest IIB fix pack and oracle client. After that was able to install oracle loopback connector successfully. Just trying to explore loopBackRequest node.
