ODBC Connectivity from Java Icon JDBC-ODBC Bridge Driver

The JDBC-ODBC Bridge provides JDBC access from any Java App to ODBC data sources on Windows, Linux and Mac. Whether your organization uses Java-based tools for reporting and analytics, or builds custom Java solutions, the CData JDBC-ODBC Bridge provides an easy way to connect with any ODBC data source.

Integrate JDBC-ODBC Bridge with External Services using SnapLogic

Use CData JDBC drivers in SnapLogic to integrate JDBC-ODBC Bridge with External Services.

SnapLogic is an integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) that allows users to create data integration flows with no code. When paired with the CData JDBC Drivers, users get access to live data from more than 250+ SaaS, Big Data and NoSQL sources, including JDBC-ODBC Bridge, in their SnapLogic workflows.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live JDBC-ODBC Bridge data. When platforms issue complex SQL queries to JDBC-ODBC Bridge, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to JDBC-ODBC Bridge and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations). Its built-in dynamic metadata querying lets you work with JDBC-ODBC Bridge data using native data types.

Connect to JDBC-ODBC Bridge in SnapLogic

To connect to JDBC-ODBC Bridge data in SnapLogic, download and install the CData JDBC-ODBC Bridge JDBC Driver. Follow the installation dialog. When the installation is complete, the JAR file can be found in the installation directory (C:/Program Files/CData/CData JDBC-ODBC Bridge Driver/lib by default).

Upload the JDBC-ODBC Bridge JDBC Driver

After installation, upload the JDBC JAR file to a location in SnapLogic (for example, projects/Jerod Johnson) from the Manager tab.

Configure the Connection

Once the JDBC Driver is uploaded, we can create the connection to JDBC-ODBC Bridge.

  1. Navigate to the Designer tab
  2. Expand "JDBC" from Snaps and drag a "Generic JDBC - Select" snap onto the designer
  3. Click Add Account (or select an existing one) and click "Continue"
  4. In the next form, configure the JDBC connection properties:
    • Under JDBC JARs, add the JAR file we previously uploaded
    • Set JDBC Driver Class to cdata.jdbc.jdbcodbc.JDBCODBCDriver
    • Set JDBC URL to a JDBC connection string for the JDBC-ODBC Bridge JDBC Driver, for example:


      NOTE: RTK is a trial or full key. Contact our Support team for more information.

      Built-In Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.jdbcodbc.jar

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

      To connect to an ODBC data source, specify either the DSN (data source name) or specify an ODBC connection string: Set Driver and the connection properties for your ODBC driver.
  5. After entering the connection properties, click "Validate" and "Apply"

Read JDBC-ODBC Bridge Data

In the form that opens after validating and applying the connection, configure your query.

  • Set Schema name to "JDBCODBC"
  • Set Table name to a table for JDBC-ODBC Bridge using the schema name, for example: "JDBCODBC"."Account" (use the drop-down to see the full list of available tables)
  • Add Output fields for each item you wish to work with from the table

Save the Generic JDBC - Select snap.

With connection and query configured, click the end of the snap to preview the data (highlighted below).

Once you confirm the results are what you expect, you can add additional snaps to funnel your JDBC-ODBC Bridge data to another endpoint.

Piping JDBC-ODBC Bridge Data to External Services

For this article, we will load data in a Google Spreadsheet. You can use any of the supported snaps, or even use a Generic JDBC snap with another CData JDBC Driver, to move data into an external service.

  1. Start by dropping a "Worksheet Writer" snap onto the end of the "Generic JDBC - Select" snap.
  2. Add an account to connect to Google Sheets
  3. Configure the Worksheet Writer snap to write your JDBC-ODBC Bridge data to a Google Spreadsheet

You can now execute the fully configured pipeline to extract data from JDBC-ODBC Bridge and push it into a Google Spreadsheet.

Piping External Data to JDBC-ODBC Bridge

As mentioned above, you can also use the JDBC Driver for JDBC-ODBC Bridge in SnapLogic to write data to JDBC-ODBC Bridge. Start by adding a Generic JDBC - Insert or Generic JDBC - Update snap to the dashboard.

  1. Select the existing "Account" (connection) or create a new one
  2. Configure the query:
    • Set Schema name to "JDBCODBC"
    • Set Table name to a table for JDBC-ODBC Bridge using the schema name, for example: "JDBCODBC"."Account" (use the drop-down to see the full list of available tables)
  3. Save the Generic JDBC - Insert/Update snap

At this point, you have configured a snap to write data to JDBC-ODBC Bridge, inserting new records or updating existing ones.
