EnterpriseDB JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with EnterpriseDB.



Use the CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live EnterpriseDB data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB, you get live access to EnterpriseDB data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to EnterpriseDB through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the EnterpriseDB data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the EnterpriseDB JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to EnterpriseDB through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData EnterpriseDB Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for EnterpriseDB. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:enterprisedb: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.

    Built-In Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.enterprisedb.jar

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

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.enterprisedb.EnterpriseDBDriver
  • Username: Set this to the username for EnterpriseDB
  • Password: Set this to the password for EnterpriseDB

Create a Mapping for EnterpriseDB Data

With the connection to EnterpriseDB configured, we can now access EnterpriseDB data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for EnterpriseDB to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the EnterpriseDB table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live EnterpriseDB data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud. Download a free, 30-day trial of the CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB and start working with your live EnterpriseDB data in Informatica Cloud today.
