Visio Shapes とPhoenix Data を連携





Phoenix ODBC Driver

Phoenix ODBC Driver を使って、ODBC 接続をサポートするあらゆるアプリケーション・ツールからApache Phoenix 経由でHBase にデータ連携。

Phoenix に標準ODBC Driver インターフェースを使ってRDB と同感覚でアクセスして、読み書き更新を実行。

Visio master shapes での変更を自動的にPhoenix data に更新。

Automate the process of entering data into Visio diagrams and keeping your diagrams up to date with the CData ODBC Driver for Phoenix. The driver surfaces Phoenix data as an ODBC data source that can be accessed by applications with built-in ODBC support like Microsoft Office. This article shows how to create a simple diagram to start brainstorming about Visio projects linked to Phoenix data.

Connect to Phoenix as an ODBC Data Source

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

Phoenix Query Server 経由でApache Phoenix に接続します。デフォルトのポートと異なる場合は、Server とPort プロパティを設定してApache Phoenix に接続します。Servre プロパティは通常、Apache Phoenix をホストしているサーバーのホスト名またはIP アドレスです。

Apache Phoenix への認証

デフォルトでは、認証は使用されません(プレーン)。サーバーに認証が設定されている場合は、AuthScheme をNEGOTIATE に設定して、 必要な場合にはUser とPassword プロパティを設定して、Kerberos で認証します。

Connect Phoenix Data to Diagrams

Follow the steps below to use the Data Selector Wizard to import data into your diagram.

  1. Open Visio and click File -> New. Open the Brainstorming template.
  2. On the Data tab, click Link Data to Shapes.
  3. Select the ODBC option and select ODBC DSN.
  4. Select the DSN for Phoenix, select the table you want to import, and finish the wizard. This article uses MyTable as an example.

Link Phoenix Entities to Shapes

Follow the steps below to create a simple diagram that shows how to create shapes from your data, one of the ways to link Phoenix entities to shapes:

  1. Click Brainstorming Shapes and drag a main topic onto the drawing page. Enter MyTable as the text of the main topic.
  2. Click Topic.
  3. Select a row in the External Data window and drag it onto the drawing page.
  4. Right-click the Topic shape and click Data -> Edit Data Graphic.
  5. Click New Item.
  6. In the Data Field menu, select a column. In the Displayed As menu, select how to display them.
  7. Drag a few other Phoenix entities onto the drawing page and add association lines back to the main topic, MyTable. New topics have the same configuration: Numeric columns displayed in data bars stand out in contrast to other MyTable entities.

You can refresh your diagram from the Data tab, synchronizing your shapes with the external Phoenix data.
