TIBCO DV Adapters


Use the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for Oracle Eloqua to create a Oracle Eloqua data source in TIBCO Data Virtualization Studio and gain access to live Oracle Eloqua data from your TDV Server.

TIBCO Data Virtualization (TDV) is an enterprise data virtualization solution that orchestrates access to multiple and varied data sources. When paired with the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for Oracle Eloqua, you get federated access to live Oracle Eloqua data directly within TIBCO Data Virtualization. This article walks through deploying an adapter and creating a new data source based on Oracle Eloqua.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData TIBCO DV Adapter offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Oracle Eloqua data. When you issue complex SQL queries to Oracle Eloqua, the adapter pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Oracle Eloqua. Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze Oracle Eloqua data using native data types.

Deploy the Oracle Eloqua TIBCO DV Adapter

  1. In a console, navigate to the bin folder in the TDV Server installation directory. If there is a current version of the adapter installed, you will need to undeploy it.

    .\server_util.bat -server localhost -user admin -password ******** -undeploy -version 1 -name OracleEloqua
    
  2. Extract the CData TIBCO DV Adapter to a local folder and deploy the JAR file (tdv.oracleeloqua.jar) to the server from the extract location.

    .\server_util.bat -server localhost -user admin -password ******** -deploy -package /PATH/TO/tdv.oracleeloqua.jar
    

You may need to restart the server to ensure the new JAR file is loaded properly, which can be accomplished by running the composite.bat script located at: C:\Program Files\TIBCO\TDV Server <version>\bin. Note that reauthenticating to the TDV Studio is required after restarting the server.

Sample Restart Call

.\composite.bat monitor restart
Once you deploy the adapter, you can create a new data source in TDV Studio for Oracle Eloqua.

Create a Oracle Eloqua Data Source in TDV Studio

With the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for Oracle Eloqua, you can easily create a data source for Oracle Eloqua and introspect the data source to add resources to TDV.

Create the Data Source

  1. Right-click on the folder you wish to add the data source to and select New -> New Data Source.
  2. Scroll until you find the adapter (e.g. Oracle Eloqua) and click Next.
  3. Name the data source (e.g. CData Oracle Eloqua Source).
  4. Fill in the required connection properties.

    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.

  5. Click Create & Close.

Introspect the Data Source

Once the data source is created, you can introspect the data source by right-clicking and selecting Open. In the dashboard, click Add/Remove Resources and select the Tables, Views, and Stored Procedures to include as part of the data source. Click Next and Finish to add the selected Oracle Eloqua tables, views, and stored procedures as resources.

After creating and introspecting the data source, you are ready to work with Oracle Eloqua data in TIBCO Data Virtualization just like you would any other relational data source. You can create views, query using SQL, publish the data source, and more.
