Connect to Email Data from PowerBuilder





Email ODBC Driver

Email ODBC ドライバーは、ODBC 接続をサポートする任意のアプリケーションからリアルタイムなインターネット電子メールに直接接続できるパワフルなツールです。標準のODBC ドライバーインタフェースを使用して、データベースのように電子メールデータにアクセスし、電子メールの読み出し、書き込み、および送信を実行できます。

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

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


Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for Email

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

  1. If you have not already done so, create an ODBC DSN for Email. The DSN contains the connection properties required to connect to Email 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:
    • User
    • Password
    • Server
    • Port
    • SMTP Server
    • SMTP Port
    • SSL Mode
    • Protocol
    • Mailbox

    Authentication セクションのUser プロパティとPassword プロパティに、有効な認証情報を設定する必要があります。 E メールを取得するには、Server を指定する必要があります。E メールを送信するにはSMTPServer を指定する必要があります。

    See the help documentation for a guide to creating a Email 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 Email DSN in the Data Source menu.
  5. To view and modify a table, right-click a table and then click Edit Data -> Grid.

Using Email 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 Email data into a DataWindow. You can add the following code to the open method:

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