Connect to Google Contacts Data from PowerBuilder





Google Contacts ODBC Driver

Google Contacts ODBC Driver は、ODBC 接続をサポートするさまざまなアプリケーションからGoogle Contacts のリアルタイムデータ連携を実現するパワフルなツールです.

データベースにアクセスするときと同感覚でGoogle Contacts データにアクセスし、標準ODBC Driver インターフェースを通じてContacts、Groups、etc. にアクセス。

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

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


Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for Google Contacts

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

  1. If you have not already done so, create an ODBC DSN for Google Contacts. The DSN contains the connection properties required to connect to Google Contacts 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:

    Google Contacts はOAuth 認証標準を利用しています。各ユーザー やドメイン内のユーザーの代わりに、本製品がGoogle API にアクセスすることを許可できます。 接続すると、本製品はデフォルトブラウザでOAuth エンドポイントを開きます。ログインして、アプリケーションにアクセス許可を与えます。本製品がOAuth プロセスを完了します。


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

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

SQLCA.DBMS = "ODBC" SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectString='DSN=CData Google Contacts Source'" CONNECT USING SQLCA; dw_friends.SetTransObject(SQLCA); dw_friends.Retrieve();
