Create an Epicor ERP Data Source for Denodo Platform





Epicor ERP JDBC Driver

Epicor ERP のSales Orders、Purchase Orders、Accounts データに連携するJava アプリケーションを素早く、簡単に開発できる便利なドライバー。

Use the CData JDBC Driver for Epicor ERP to create a virtual data source for Epicor ERP 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 Epicor ERP, Denodo users can work with live Epicor ERP data alongside other enterprise data sources. This article walks through creating a virtual data source for Epicor ERP in the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Epicor ERP data. When you issue complex SQL queries to Epicor ERP, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Epicor ERP 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 Epicor ERP data using native data types.

Create an Epicor ERP Virtual Port

To connect to live Epicor ERP 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 Epicor ERP 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 Epicor ERP\lib\) to the Denodo external library directory (C:\Denodo\Denodo Platform\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\cdata-epicorerp-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.: epicorerp
    • Database adapter: Generic
    • Driver class path: C:\Denodo\Denodo Platform\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\cdata-epicorerp-19
    • Driver class: cdata.jdbc.epicorerp.EpicorERPDriver
    • 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 Epicor ERP JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.epicorerp.jar

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

      ERP インスタンスに接続するには、次の接続プロパティを指定してください。

      • Url:ERP インスタンスをホストしているサーバーのURL。例えば、
      • ERPInstance:ERP インスタンス名。
      • User:アカウントのユーザー名。
      • Password:アカウントのパスワード。
      • Service:データを取得するサービス。例えば、BaqSvc。


      • ApiKey:アカウント設定に応じて、いくつかのサービスへの接続に必要となるオプションのキー。
      • ApiVersion:デフォルトはv1。新しいEpicor API を使用するにはv2 に設定してください。
      • Company:ApiVersion をv2 に設定した場合は必須になります。
  6. Click the "Test connection" button to confirm the configuration and click Save.

View Epicor ERP Data in the VirtualPort Administrator Tool

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

  1. Click the "Create base view" button in the newly created VirtualPort (admin.EpicorERP).
  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 Epicor ERP 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_epicorerp_customers) 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_epicorerp_customers 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 Epicor ERP data like you would any other data source in Denodo Platform, for example, querying Epicor ERP in the Denodo Data Catalog.
