Connect to EDGAR Online Data and Transfer Data in Talend

Integrate EDGAR Online data with standard components and data source configuration wizards in Talend Open Studio.

This article shows how you can easily integrate the CData JDBC driver for EDGAR Online into your workflow in Talend. This article uses the CData JDBC Driver for EDGAR Online to transfer EDGAR Online data in a job flow in Talend.

Connect to EDGAR Online in Talend as a JDBC Data Source

You can follow the procedure below to establish a JDBC connection to EDGAR Online:

  1. Add a new database connection to EDGAR Online data: To add a new connection, expand the Metadata node, right-click the Db Connections node, and then click Create Connection.
  2. In the resulting wizard, enter a name for the connection.
  3. On the next page, select Generic JDBC from the DB Type menu and enter the JDBC URL.

    1. Navigate to https://developer.edgar-online.com/ and create an account.
    2. Register a new application and retrieve the AppKey. You should select one of the available Web APIs this application will use like HackPack, Insider Trades or Institutional Ownership.
      Note: HackPack is the most important Web API that an application can use since it supports a large number of endpoints. If you are getting the "Access Denied" error you must create a new app and select the correct Web API which supports the resource you are querying.
    3. After successfully creating a new app, you can access your keys through your "my account" area. Set the AppKey connection property value equal to the Key of your application.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.edgaronline.jar

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

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:edgaronline:AppKey=20dd8ce9904d422ed89ebde1ad40d
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.edgaronline.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Right-click the connection and then click Retrieve Schema.
  6. Click Next with the default options to select the tables you want to import.
  7. Finish the wizard with the default options.

Output the Subscriptions Table to a Flat File

You can follow the procedure below to transfer the Subscriptions table to a flat file output component:

  1. In the Table Schemas node, drag the tables to the workspace.
  2. In the dialog that is displayed, select the tJDBCInput component.
  3. Next, drag a tFileOutputDelimited component from the Business Intelligence tab of the Palette into the workspace.
  4. Right-click the Subscriptions tJDBCInput component and drag a vector to the output file.

Run the project to transfer the data.
