Dropbox Data にSQL を使ってAnypoint からデータ連携

CData Mule Connector for Dropbox を使って、Dropbox data のJSON エンドポイントを作成するシンプルなMule アプリケーションを作成。

CData Mule Connector for Dropbox は、Dropbox data をMule アプリケーションから標準SQL でのread、write、update、およびdeleteを可能にします。コネクタを使うことで、Mule アプリケーションでDropbox data のバックアップ、変換、レポート、および分析を簡単に行えます。

This article demonstrates how to use the CData Mule Connector for Dropbox inside of a Mule project to create a Web interface for Dropbox data. The application created allows you to request Dropbox data using an HTTP request and have the results returned as JSON. The exact same procedure outlined below can be used with any CData Mule Connector to create a Web interface for the 200+ available data sources.

  1. Create a new Mule Project in Anypoint Studio.
  2. Add an HTTP Connector to the Message Flow.
  3. Configure the address for the HTTP Connector.
  4. Add a CData Dropbox Connector to the same flow, after the HTTP Connector.
  5. Create a new Connection (or edit an existing one) and configure the properties to connect to Dropbox (see below). Once the connection is configured, click Test Connection to ensure the connectivity to Dropbox.

    Dropbox uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you can use the embedded credentials or register an app with Dropbox.

    See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.

  6. Configure the CData Dropbox Connector.
    1. Set the Operation to 'Select with Streaming'.
    2. Set the Query type to Dynamic.
    3. Set the SQL query to SELECT * FROM #[message.inboundProperties.'http.query.params'.get('table')] to parse the URL parameter table and use it as the target of the SELECT query. You can customize the query further by referencing other potential URL parameters.
  7. Add a Transform Message Component to the flow.
    1. Map the Payload from the input to the Map in the output.
    2. Set the Output script to the following to convert the payload to JSON:
      %dw 1.0
      %output application/json
      ---
      payload
              
  8. To view your Dropbox data, navigate to the address you configured for the HTTP Connector (localhost:8081 by default) and pass a table name as the table URL parameter: http://localhost:8081?table=Files
    The Files data is available as JSON in your Web browser and any other tools capable of consuming JSON endpoints.

At this point, you have a simple Web interface for working with Dropbox data (as JSON data) in custom apps and a wide variety of BI, reporting, and ETL tools. Download a free, 30 day trial of the Mule Connector for Dropbox and see the CData difference in your Mule Applications today.
