Google Data Catalog JDBC Driver

Google Data Catalog 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 Google Data Catalog with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live Google Data Catalog data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for Google Data Catalog, you get live access to Google Data Catalog data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to Google Data Catalog through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the Google Data Catalog data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the Google Data Catalog JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to Google Data Catalog through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData Google Data Catalog Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for Google Data Catalog. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:googledatacatalog:ProjectId=YourProjectId;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH;

    Google Data Catalog uses the OAuth authentication standard. Authorize access to Google APIs on behalf on individual users or on behalf of users in a domain.

    Before connecting, specify the following to identify the organization and project you would like to connect to:

    • OrganizationId: The ID associated with the Google Cloud Platform organization resource you would like to connect to. Find this by navigating to the cloud console.

      Click the project selection drop-down, and select your organization from the list. Then, click More -> Settings. The organization ID is displayed on this page.

    • ProjectId: The ID associated with the Google Cloud Platform project resource you would like to connect to.

      Find this by navigating to the cloud console dashboard and selecting your project from the Select from drop-down. The project ID will be present in the Project info card.

    When you connect, the OAuth endpoint opens in your default browser. Log in and grant permissions to the application to completes the OAuth process. For more information, refer to the OAuth section in the Help documentation.

    Built-In Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Google Data Catalog JDBC Driver. Either double-click the .jar file or execute the .jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.googledatacatalog.jar

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

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Google Data Catalog\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.googledatacatalog.GoogleDataCatalogDriver
  • Username: Set this to a placeholder value (since Google Data Catalog does not require a username)
  • Password: Set this to a placeholder value (since Google Data Catalog does not require a password)

Create a Mapping for Google Data Catalog Data

With the connection to Google Data Catalog configured, we can now access Google Data Catalog data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for Google Data Catalog to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the Google Data Catalog table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live Google Data Catalog data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud.
