Create an SAP BusinessObjects Universe on the CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB





EnterpriseDB JDBC Driver

EnterpriseDB 連携のパワフルなJava アプリケーションを素早く作成して配布。

Provide connectivity to EnterpriseDB data through an SAP BusinessObjects universe.

This article shows how to use the CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB to connect to EnterpriseDB from SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence applications. You will use the Information Design Tool to analyze EnterpriseDB data and create a universe on the CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB. You will then connect to the universe from Web Intelligence.

Create the JDBC Connection to EnterpriseDB

Follow the steps below to create a connection to the EnterpriseDB JDBC data source in the Information Design Tool.

  1. Copy the CData JAR and .lic file into the following subfolder in the installation directory for BusinessObjects: dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\drivers\jdbc. The CData JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  2. Right-click your project and click New -> New Relational Connection.
  3. In the wizard that results, click Generic -> Generic JDBC datasource -> JDBC Drivers.
  4. On the next page of the wizard enter the connection details.
  5. On the next page, set the Authentication Mode option to "Use specified username and password". Enter the username, password, and JDBC URL. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:enterprisedb: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.


    • Server: EnterpriseDB データベースをホスティングしているサーバーのホスト名またはIP アドレス。
    • Port: EnterpriseDB データベースをホスティングしているサーバーのポート。


    • Database: EnterpriseDB サーバーに接続する場合のデフォルトのデータベース。設定されていない場合は、ユーザーのデフォルトデータベースが使用されます。

    Basic 認証による接続

    Basic 認証を使って認証するには、以下を設定します。

    • User:EnterpriseDB サーバーに認証する際に使われるユーザー。
    • Password:EnterpriseDB サーバーに認証する際に使われるパスワード。

    SSL 認証による接続

    SSL 認証を利用して、セキュアなセッションを介してEnterpriseDB データに接続できます。以下の接続プロパティを設定して、データに接続します。

    • SSLClientCert:クライアント証明書のための証明書ストア名に設定します。クライアントとサーバーの両方のマシンでトラストストアとキーストアが保持される2-way SSL の場合に使用されます。
    • SSLClientCertPassword:クライアント証明書ストアがパスワードで保護されている場合、この値をストアのパスワードに設定します。
    • SSLClientCertSubject:TLS/SSL クライアント証明書のSubject。ストア内の証明書を検索するために使用されます。
    • SSLClientCertType:クライアントストアの証明書タイプ。
    • SSLServerCert:サーバーが受け入れ可能な証明書。

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

  6. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.enterprisedb.EnterpriseDBDriver
  7. Finish the wizard with the default values for connection pooling and custom parameters.

Analyze EnterpriseDB Data in the Information Design Tool

You can use the JDBC connection to analyze EnterpriseDB data in the Information Design Tool.

  1. In the Local Projects view, double-click the connection (the .cnx file) to open the EnterpriseDB data source.
  2. On the Show Values tab, you can load table data and enter SQL queries. To view table data, expand the node for the table, right-click the table, and click Show Values. Values will be displayed in the Raw Data tab.
  3. On the Analysis tab, you can then analyze data by dragging and dropping columns onto the axes of a chart.

Publish the Local Connection

To publish the universe to the CMS, you additionally need to publish the connection.

  1. In the Local Projects view, right-click the connection and click Publish Connection to a Repository.
  2. Enter the host and port of the repository and connection credentials.
  3. Select the folder where the connection will be published.
  4. In the success dialog that results, click Yes to create a connection shortcut.

Create a Universe on the JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB

You can follow the steps below to create a universe on the JDBC driver. The universe in this example will be published to a repository, so it uses the published connection created in the previous step.

  1. In the Information Design Tool, click File->New Universe.
  2. Select your project.
  3. Select the option to create the universe on a relational data source.
  4. Select the shortcut to the published connection.
  5. Enter a name for the Data Foundation.
  6. Import tables and columns that you want to access as objects.
  7. Enter a name for the Business Layer.

Publish the Universe

You can follow the steps below to publish the universe to the CMS.

  1. In the Local Projects view, right-click the business layer and click Publish -> To a Repository.
  2. In the Publish Universe dialog, enter any integrity checks before importing.
  3. Select or create a folder on the repository where the universe will be published.

Query EnterpriseDB Data in Web Intelligence

You can use the published universe to connect to EnterpriseDB in Web Intelligence.

  1. Copy the cdata.jdbc.enterprisedb.lic file to the following subfolder in the BusinessObjects installation directory: \dataAccess\connectionServer\jdbc\drivers\jdbc. The license file is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  2. Open Web Intelligence from the BusinessObjects launchpad and create a new document.
  3. Select the Universe option for the data source.
  4. Select the EnterpriseDB universe. This opens a Query Panel. Drag objects to the Result Objects pane to use them in the query.
