FTP JDBC ドライバーでOBIEE レポートとデータ連携

エンタープライズ全体にリアルタイムのレポートを提供するために、OBIEE にFTP JDBC ドライバーをデプロイします。

CData JDBC driver for FTP は、FTP data データ連携をJava ベースのレポートサーバーにから実現する標準データベースドライバーです。ここでは、ドライバーをOracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition(OBIEE )にデプロイし、リアルタイムFTP data レポートを作成する方法を説明します。

JDBC ドライバーをデプロイ

Follow the steps below to add the JDBC driver to WebLogic's classpath.

For WebLogic 12.2.1, simply place the driver JAR and .lic file into DOMAIN_HOME\lib; for example, ORACLE_HOME\user_projects\domains\MY_DOMAIN\lib.These files will be added to the server classpath at startup.

You can also manually add the driver to the classpath:This is required for earlier versions.Prepend the following to PRE_CLASSPATH in setDomainEnv.cmd (Windows) or setDomainEnv.sh (Unix).This script is located in the bin subfolder of the folder for that domain.For example:ORACLE_HOME\user_projects\domains\MY_DOMAIN\bin.

set PRE_CLASSPATH=your-installation-directory\lib\cdata.jdbc.ftp.jar;%PRE_CLASSPATH%

Restart all servers; for example, run the stop and start commands in DOMAIN_HOME\bitools\bin.

FTP のJDBC データソースを作成

After deploying the JDBC driver, you can create a JDBC data source from BI Publisher.

  1. Log into BI Publisher, at the URL http://localhost:9502/analytics, for example, and click Administration -> Manage BI Publisher.
  2. Click JDBC Connection -> Add Data Source.
  3. Enter the following information:
    • Data Source Name:Enter the name that users will create connections to in their reports.
    • Driver Type:Select Other.
    • Database DriverClass:Enter the driver class, cdata.jdbc.ftp.FTPDriver.
    • Connection String:Enter the JDBC URL.

      To connect to FTP or SFTP servers, specify at least RemoteHost and FileProtocol. Specify the port with RemotePort.

      Set User and Password to perform Basic authentication. Set SSHAuthMode to use SSH authentication. See the Getting Started section of the data provider help documentation for more information on authenticating via SSH.

      Set SSLMode and SSLServerCert to secure connections with SSL.

      The data provider lists the tables based on the available folders in your FTP server. Set the following connection properties to control the relational view of the file system:

      • RemotePath: Set this to the current working directory.
      • TableDepth: Set this to control the depth of folders to list as views.
      • FileRetrievalDepth: Set this to retrieve and list files recursively from the root table.

      Stored Procedures are available to download files, upload files, and send protocol commands. See the Data Model chapter of the FTP data provider documentation for more information.

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.ftp.jar

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

      When you configure the JDBC URL, you may also want to set the Max Rows connection property.This will limit the number of rows returned, which is especially helpful for improving performance when designing reports and visualizations.

      A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:ftp:RemoteHost=MyFTPServer;
    • Username:Enter the username.
    • Password:Enter the password.
  4. In the Security section, select the allowed user roles.

リアルタイムのFTP レポートを作成

You can now create reports and analyses based on real-time FTP data.Follow the steps below to use the standard report wizard to create an interactive report that reflects any changes to FTP data.

  1. On the global header, click New -> Data Model.
  2. On the Diagram tab, select SQL query in the menu.
  3. Enter a name for the query and in the Data Source menu select the FTP JDBC data source you created.
  4. Select standard SQL and enter a query like the following: SELECT Filesize, Filename FROM MyDirectory
  5. Click View Data to generate the sample data to be used as you build your report.
  6. Select the number of rows to include in the sample data, click View, and then click Save As Sample Data.
  7. Click Create Report -> Use Data Model.
  8. Select Guide Me and on the Select Layout page select the report objects you want to include.In this example we select Chart and Table.
  9. Drop a numeric column like Filename onto the Drop Value Here box on the y-axis.Drop a dimension column like Filesize onto the Drop Label Here box on the x-axis.
  10. Click Refresh to pick up any changes to the FTP data.
