Facebook JDBC Driver

任意のWeb、デスクトップ、またはモバイルJava / J2EE アプリケーションをイベント、グループ、スポット、投稿などのFacebook データに接続できます。



Use the CData JDBC Driver for Facebook with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live Facebook data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for Facebook, you get live access to Facebook data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to Facebook through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the Facebook data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the Facebook JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to Facebook through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData Facebook Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for Facebook. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:facebook:InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH;

    Facebook はユーザー認証にOAuth 標準を使用しています。 ユーザー資格情報の接続プロパティを設定せずに接続できます。 接続すると、本製品はデフォルトブラウザでFacebook OAuth エンドポイントを開きます。ログインして、本製品にアクセス許可を与えます。本製品がOAuth プロセスを完了します。 他のOAuth 認証フローについては、ヘルプドキュメントの「OAuth 認証の使用」を参照してください。

    Built-In Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Facebook JDBC Driver. Either double-click the .jar file or execute the .jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.facebook.jar

    Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Facebook\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.facebook.FacebookDriver
  • Username: Set this to a placeholder value (since Facebook does not require a username)
  • Password: Set this to a placeholder value (since Facebook does not require a password)

Create a Mapping for Facebook Data

With the connection to Facebook configured, we can now access Facebook data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for Facebook to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the Facebook table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live Facebook data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud. Download a free, 30-day trial of the CData JDBC Driver for Facebook and start working with your live Facebook data in Informatica Cloud today.
