Use the CData JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua to create a virtual data source for Oracle Eloqua data in the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator.

Denodo Platform is a data virtualization product providing a single point of contact for enterprise database data. When paired with the CData JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua, Denodo users can work with live Oracle Eloqua data alongside other enterprise data sources. This article walks through creating a virtual data source for Oracle Eloqua in the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Oracle Eloqua data. When you issue complex SQL queries to Oracle Eloqua, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Oracle Eloqua and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations). Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze Oracle Eloqua data using native data types.

Create an Oracle Eloqua Virtual Port

To connect to live Oracle Eloqua data from Denodo, you need to copy the JDBC Driver JAR file to the external library directory for Denodo and create a new JDBC Data Source from the Virtual DataPort Administrator tool.

  1. Download the CData JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua installer, unzip the package, and run the JAR file to install the driver.
  2. Copy the JAR File (and license file if it exists) from the installation location (typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua\lib\) to the Denodo external library directory (C:\Denodo\Denodo Platform\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\cdata-oracleeloqua-19).
  3. Open the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator tool and navigate to the Server Explorer tab.
  4. Right-click "admin" and select New -> Data source -> JDBC.
  5. Configure the JDBC Connection:
    • Name: your choice, e.g.: oracleeloqua
    • Database adapter: Generic
    • Driver class path: C:\Denodo\Denodo Platform\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\cdata-oracleeloqua-19
    • Driver class: cdata.jdbc.oracleeloqua.OracleEloquaDriver
    • Database URI: Set this to a JDBC URL using the necessary connection properties. For example,


      Information on creating the Database URI follows:

      Built-In Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.oracleeloqua.jar

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

      Oracle Eloqua への標準的な認証方法は、ログインメソッドによるものです。ログインメソッドでは、Company を設定し、User およびPassword をログインに使用するクレデンシャルに設定する必要があります。このメソッドは、SSL でHTTP Basic 認証を使用します。

      あるいは、Oracle Eloqua OAuth 認証を使用して接続することもできます。これは、ユーザー名やパスワードへのアクセスを保有していない場合や、それらを使いたくない場合に使用できます。OAuth は、他のユーザーが彼らのデータにアクセスできるようにするのに適しています。ログインクレデンシャルを使う方法は、自分のデータへのアクセスに適しています。

  6. Click the "Test connection" button to confirm the configuration and click Save.

View Oracle Eloqua Data in the VirtualPort Administrator Tool

After creating the data source, you can create a base view of Oracle Eloqua data for use in the Denodo Platform.

  1. Click the "Create base view" button in the newly created VirtualPort (admin.OracleEloqua).
  2. Expand the object tree and select the objects (tables) you wish to import.
  3. Click the "Create selected" button to create views of the Oracle Eloqua data.
    Optional: Click "Create associations from foreign keys" to define relationships between the objects.
  4. With the view(s) created, navigate to a table (cdata_oracleeloqua_campaign) in the Server Explorer and double-click the selected table.
  5. In the new tab, click "Execution panel" to open a query panel.
  6. Customize the query in the "Execute" tab or use the default:
    SELECT * FROM cdata_oracleeloqua_campaign CONTEXT ('i18n'='us_est', 'cache_wait_for_load'='true')
  7. Click Execute to view the data.

With the base view created, you can now work with live Oracle Eloqua data like you would any other data source in Denodo Platform, for example, querying Oracle Eloqua in the Denodo Data Catalog.
