Hi Ramjeevan,

I see you asked this in the Developer Community and they replied with the following:


You don’t need to include‘jugglingdb’, require(‘jugglingdb-sqlite3’)); into your app.js file, also i’d suggest you using sequelize since jugglingdb is not maintained (last commit 1 year ago).

If that helps please accept the answer here and in the developer community so others can benefit from this solution if they are running into the same issue.



Thanks for your quick response!

Yes, I have changed the adapter to "sequelize", type: sqlite3, database: store.db, then giving the error as "url should be defined"

Then changed the type: postgres

url: "postgres://localhost:8080/my_data_base", then gives the error as "Unhandled error: SequelizeConnectionRefusedError: connect ECONNREFUSED"

Please find the attached pictures. As you can see in first pic, if there is a url, we get one type of error...

If there is no url, you can see the error in the next picture...
