Connect to Kintone Data from PowerBuilder

This article demonstrates how to use the CData ODBC Driver for Kintone to connect to Kintone data and execute queries in PowerBuilder.

The CData ODBC Driver for Kintone can be used from any platform or development technology that supports ODBC, including Sybase PowerBuilder. This article shows how to connect to Kintone data and execute queries from the Database Painter and controls such as the DataWindow.

Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for Kintone

Follow the steps below to use the Database Painter tool to create a database profile based on an ODBC DSN (data source name) for Kintone. In the Database Painter, you can use wizards and the UI to work with Kintone data.

  1. If you have not already done so, create an ODBC DSN for Kintone. The DSN contains the connection properties required to connect to Kintone data. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure DSNs. This is the last step of installing the driver. Required connection properties are the following:
    • Username
    • Password
    • URL
    • GuestSpaceId
    • ApiToken

    &service; に接続するには、&rpUser; および&rpPassword; を設定します。さらに、&rpUrl; を設定します。例: または。

    See the help documentation for a guide to creating a Kintone DSN.

  2. In PowerBuilder, click Tools -> Database Painter.
  3. In the Objects window in the Database Painter, right-click the ODBC node and click New Profile.
  4. On the Connection tab, enter a name for the profile and select the Kintone DSN in the Data Source menu.
  5. To view and modify a table, right-click a table and then click Edit Data -> Grid.

Using Kintone Data with PowerBuilder Controls

You can use standard PowerBuilder objects to connect to ODBC data sources and execute queries. The following example shows how to retrieve Kintone data into a DataWindow. You can add the following code to the open method:

SQLCA.DBMS = "ODBC" SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectString='DSN=CData Kintone Source'" CONNECT USING SQLCA; dw_comments.SetTransObject(SQLCA); dw_comments.Retrieve();
