Connect to SAP HANA Data from PowerBuilder

This article demonstrates how to access SAP HANA data from Appeon PowerBuilder using the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP HANA.

This article demonstrates using the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP HANA in PowerBuilder, showcasing the ease of use and compatibility of these standards-based controls across various platforms and development technologies that support Microsoft .NET, including Appeon PowerBuilder.

This article shows how to create a basic PowerBuilder application that uses the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP HANA to perform reads and writes.

  1. In a new WPF Window Application solution, add all the Visual Controls needed for the connection properties. Below is a typical connection string:


    Set the Server, Database and Port properties to specify the address of your SAP Hana database to interact with. Set the User and the Password properties to authenticate to the server.

  2. Add the DataGrid control from the .NET controls.
  3. Configure the columns of the DataGrid control. Below are several columns from the Account table: <DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Margin="13,249,12,14" Name="datagrid1" TabIndex="70" ItemsSource="{Binding}"> <DataGrid.Columns> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="idColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=Id}" Header="Id" Width="SizeToHeader" /> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="nameColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=Name}" Header="Name" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP HANA assembly.

Connect the DataGrid

Once the visual elements have been configured, you can use standard ADO.NET objects like Connection, Command, and DataAdapter to populate a DataTable with the results of an SQL query:

System.Data.CData.SAPHANA.SAPHANAConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.SAPHANA.SAPHANAConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.SAPHANA.SAPHANACommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.SAPHANA.SAPHANACommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.SAPHANA.SAPHANADataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.SAPHANA.SAPHANADataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

The code above can be used to bind data from the specified query to the DataGrid.
