Viewing Oracle Eloqua Data in RAD Studio Data Explorer

How to view Oracle Eloqua data in RAD Studio Data Explorer using the CData FireDAC Components for Oracle Eloqua.

Embarcadero RAD Studio provides a development environment for Delphi and C++Builder applications. With the CData FireDAC Components for Oracle Eloqua, you gain access to live Oracle Eloqua data within RAD Studio, abstracting the data into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to both retrieve and update Oracle Eloqua data. This article will walk through connecting to Oracle Eloqua using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to Oracle Eloqua Data Using Data Explorer

You can create a simple application for displaying Oracle Eloqua data by utilizing the CData FireDAC Components for Oracle Eloqua and a new VCL Forms Application:

  1. Open the Data Explorer in RAD Studio and expand FireDAC.
  2. Right-click on CData Oracle Eloqua Data Source and click Add New Connection.

  3. Name the connection.
  4. Fill in the necessary connection parameters and click OK.

    There are two authentication methods available for connecting to Eloqua: Login and OAuth. The Login method requires you to have the Company, User, and Password of the user.

    If you do not have access to the username and password or do not wish to require them, you can use OAuth authentication. OAuth is better suited for allowing other users to access their own data. Using login credentials is better suited for accessing your own data.

  5. Back in the Data Explorer, expand the tables for the connection.
  6. Create a new VCL Forms application and drag a table (for example: Campaign) onto the form.

  7. Select the CampaignTable object on the form and set the Active property to true.
  8. Right-click on the object, bind visually, and link everything (*) to a new control (TStringGrid).

  9. Arrange the TStringGrid on the form and run the application to see the Campaign data.
