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。



Provide connectivity to Epicor ERP data through an SAP BusinessObjects universe.

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

Create the JDBC Connection to Epicor ERP

Follow the steps below to create a connection to the Epicor ERP 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:epicorerp: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

    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、https://myserver.EpicorSaaS.com
    • 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。

    また、オプションで次の接続プロパティを指定することもできます。

    • 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。

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:epicorerp:Service=Erp.BO.CustomerSvc;ERPInstance=MyInstance;URL=https://myaccount.epicorsaas.com;User=username;Password=password;
  6. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.epicorerp.EpicorERPDriver
  7. Finish the wizard with the default values for connection pooling and custom parameters.

Analyze Epicor ERP Data in the Information Design Tool

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

  1. In the Local Projects view, double-click the connection (the .cnx file) to open the Epicor ERP 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 Epicor ERP

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 Epicor ERP Data in Web Intelligence

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

  1. Copy the cdata.jdbc.epicorerp.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 Epicor ERP universe. This opens a Query Panel. Drag objects to the Result Objects pane to use them in the query.
