Connect to Oracle Eloqua Data in as an External Source in Dremio



Use the CData JDBC Driver to connect to Oracle Eloqua as an External Source in Dremio.

The CData JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua implements JDBC Standards and allows various applications, including Dremio, to work with live Oracle Eloqua data. Dremio is a data lakehouse platform designed to empower self-service, interactive analytics on the data lake. With the CData JDBC Driver, you can include live Oracle Eloqua data as a part of your enterprise data lake. This article describes how to connect to Oracle Eloqua data from Dremio as an External Source.

The CData JDBC Driver enables high-speed access to live Oracle Eloqua data in Dremio. Once you install the driver, authenticate with Oracle Eloqua and gain immediate access to Oracle Eloqua data within your data lake. By surfacing Oracle Eloqua data using native data types and handling complex filters, aggregations, & other operations automatically, the CData JDBC Driver grants seamless access to Oracle Eloqua data.

Build the ARP Connector

To use the CData JDBC Driver in Dremio, you need to build an Advanced Relation Pushdown (ARP) Connector. You can view the source code for the Connector on GitHub or download the ZIP file (GitHub.com) directly. Once you copy or extract the files, run the following command from the root directory of the connector (the directory containing the pom.xml file) to build the connector.

mvn clean install

Once the JAR file for the connector is built (in the target directory), you are ready to copy the ARP connector and JDBC Driver to your Dremio instance.

Installing the Connector and JDBC Driver

Install the ARP Connector to %DREMIO_HOME%/jars/ and the JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua to %DREMIO_HOME%/jars/3rdparty. You can use commands similar to the following:

ARP Connector

docker cp PATH\TO\dremio-oracleeloqua-plugin-20.0.0.jar dremio_image_name:/opt/dremio/jars/

JDBC Driver for Oracle Eloqua

docker cp PATH\TO\cdata.jdbc.oracleeloqua.jar dremio_image_name:/opt/dremio/jars/3rdparty/

Connecting to Oracle Eloqua

Oracle Eloqua will now appear as an External Source option in Dremio. The ARP Connector built uses a JDBC URL to connect to Oracle Eloqua data. The JDBC Driver has a built-in connection string designer that you can use (see below).

Built-in Connection String Designer

For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Oracle Eloqua JDBC Driver. Double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command line.

java -jar cdata.jdbc.oracleeloqua.jar

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

There are two authentication methods available for connecting to Oracle Eloqua: Login and OAuth. The Login method requires you to have the Company, User, and Password of the user.

If you do not have access to the username and password or do not wish to require them, you can use OAuth authentication. OAuth is better suited for allowing other users to access their own data. Using login credentials is better suited for accessing your own data.

NOTE: To use the JDBC Driver in Dremio, you will need a license (full or trial) and a Runtime Key (RTK). For more information on obtaining this license (or a trial), contact our sales team.

Add the Runtime Key (RTK) to the JDBC URL. You will end up with a JDBC URL similar to the following:

jdbc:oracleeloqua:RTK=5246...;User=user;Password=password;Company=CData;

Access Oracle Eloqua as an External Source

To add Oracle Eloqua as an External Source, click to add a new source and select OracleEloqua. Copy the JDBC URL and paste it into the New OracleEloqua Source wizard.

Save the connection and you are ready to query live Oracle Eloqua data in Dremio, easily incorporating Oracle Eloqua data into your data lake.
