Create an SAP BusinessObjects Universe on the CData JDBC Driver for Sybase





Sybase JDBC Driver

Sybase データベースに連携するJava アプリケーションを簡単に構築。

Provide connectivity to Sybase data through an SAP BusinessObjects universe.

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

Create the JDBC Connection to Sybase

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

    Sybase は、Basic 認証、Kerberos 認証、LDAP 認証などの認証方法をいくつかサポートしています。

    Basic 認証を使用した接続

    次を設定してデータを認証し接続します。User およびPassword を設定してSybaseIQ 認証を使用します。

    • User:認証Sybase ユーザーのユーザー名に設定。
    • Password:認証Sybase ユーザーのパスワードに設定。
    • Server:SybaseIQ またはSAP SQL Anywhere データベースインスタンスの名前またはネットワークアドレスに設定。
    • Database:指定されたサーバーで実行されているSybaseIQ またはSAP SQL Anywhere データベースの名前に設定。

    オプションで、UseSSL をtrue に設定することにより、TLS/SSL で接続を保護できます。

    Note: 上記の本製品 設定でSAP SQL Anywhere のインスタンスに接続することもできます。

    Kerberos 認証を使用した接続

    Kerberos 認証を活用するには、次の接続プロパティを使用してそれを有効にすることから始めます。

    • AuthScheme:Kerberos に設定すると、Sybase への認証に使用されます。

    Kerberos 認証用に設定する必要がある接続プロパティに関しては、Kerberos の使用 情報を参照してください。



    LDAP 認証を使用した接続

    LDAP 認証で接続するには、LDAP 認証メカニズムを使用するようにSybase サーバーサイドを設定する必要があります。

    LDAP 用にSybase を設定したら、Basic 認証と同じクレデンシャルを使用して接続できます。

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

  6. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.sybase.SybaseDriver
  7. Finish the wizard with the default values for connection pooling and custom parameters.

Analyze Sybase Data in the Information Design Tool

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

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

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 Sybase Data in Web Intelligence

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

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