EnterpriseDB BizTalk Adapter

Powerful BizTalk Adapters that allow you to easily connect BizTalk Server with live EnterpriseDB data through standard orchestrations.

Use the EnterpriseDB Adapters to synchronize with EnterpriseDB databases. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!



Use the adapter for EnterpriseDB with a solicit-response send port to execute updategrams and data manipulation SQL in BizTalk.

This section provides step-by-step instructions for creating, configuring, and testing a static solicit-response send port using the CData BizTalk Adapter for EnterpriseDB. You can use a static solicit-response send port to execute commands and access the results in BizTalk. You can use send ports to execute updategram commands, SQL commands, and stored procedure operations.

Create and Configure the Send Port

Create a static solicit-response send port and configure it to use the adapter as its transport type.

  1. If you have not already done so, open your BizTalk application in the BizTalk Administration Console.
  2. In the node for your BizTalk application, right-click Send Ports and select New -> Static Solicit-Response Send Port. The Send Port Properties dialog is displayed.
  3. In the Send Port properties, enter a name for the receive port.
  4. In the Transport Type menu, select CData.EnterpriseDB;.
  5. In the Send pipeline menu, select the default option, PassThruTransmit.
  6. In the Receive pipeline menu, select the default option, PassThruReceive.

Configure the Adapter

Define the command the adapter will execute in the Transport Properties dialog.

  1. In the send port properties, click the Configure button. The Adapter Transport Properties dialog is displayed.
  2. In the CommandType property, select the command type you want.
  3. If you want to execute an SQL command, enter the command in the SQL Command box.
Refer to the "Adapter Configuration" chapter in the help documentation for a description of the various properties and their functions.

Configure the Connection to EnterpriseDB

Configure credentials and other properties required to connect to EnterpriseDB in the Connection String Options dialog.

  1. In the send port properties, click Configure. The adapter properties dialog is displayed.
  2. Click the button in the Connection String property. The Connection String Options dialog is displayed.
  3. Enter the connection properties. Below is a typical connection string: User=postgres;Password=admin;Database=postgres;Server=127.0.0.1;Port=5444

    The following connection properties are required in order to connect to data.

    • Server: The host name or IP of the server hosting the EnterpriseDB database.
    • Port: The port of the server hosting the EnterpriseDB database.

    You can also optionally set the following:

    • Database: The default database to connect to when connecting to the EnterpriseDB Server. If this is not set, the user's default database will be used.

    Connect Using Standard Authentication

    To authenticate using standard authentication, set the following:

    • User: The user which will be used to authenticate with the EnterpriseDB server.
    • Password: The password which will be used to authenticate with the EnterpriseDB server.

    Connect Using SSL Authentication

    You can leverage SSL authentication to connect to EnterpriseDB data via a secure session. Configure the following connection properties to connect to data:

    • SSLClientCert: Set this to the name of the certificate store for the client certificate. Used in the case of 2-way SSL, where truststore and keystore are kept on both the client and server machines.
    • SSLClientCertPassword: If a client certificate store is password-protected, set this value to the store's password.
    • SSLClientCertSubject: The subject of the TLS/SSL client certificate. Used to locate the certificate in the store.
    • SSLClientCertType: The certificate type of the client store.
    • SSLServerCert: The certificate to be accepted from the server.

  4. Click Test Connection to verify the values and test connectivity.
Refer to the "Connection String Options" chapter in the help documentation for a description of the various properties and their functions. The updategram tutorial for the adapter for EnterpriseDB walks through the steps to create a simple application that uses a solicit-response send port to execute an insert updategram to EnterpriseDB.
