Compile with Oracle Client 10.0.5

I know that node-oracledb needs Oracle Client 11.2 or above as it states on the github repository. What I would like to know if it is possible to use the oracle client 10.0.5, even with less features.

I'm asking this because I have some oracle 9.0.1 databases in production and they won't be upgraded soon and I would like to use nodejs with them :-)

Event-loop and asynchronous access are perfect for what I need...

    There are some low level node-oracledb features not supported by 10g's client SDK.  For example the DRCP connection pooling support. You would have to spend some time reworking code paths in the code. In general, the answer is: upgrade those DBs!!!!

    I would love to upgrade :-)

    We're talking about 400 Oracle 7.3.4 Databases connected to 400 Oracle 9.0.1 databases, running Oracle Forms 3  and Forms 6 :-)

    I imagine that 5 years from now we will still have this situation, so my question about this possibility.

    Just to lighten up I was imagining node as a broker for all these databases :-)
