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

Integrate EnterpriseDB with External Services using SnapLogic



Use the CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB in SnapLogic to integrate EnterpriseDB with External Services.

SnapLogic is an integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) that allows users to create data integration flows with no code. When paired with the CData JDBC Drivers, users get access to live data from more than 250+ SaaS, Big Data and NoSQL sources, including EnterpriseDB, in their SnapLogic workflows.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live EnterpriseDB data. When platforms issue complex SQL queries to EnterpriseDB, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to EnterpriseDB and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations). Its built-in dynamic metadata querying lets you work with EnterpriseDB data using native data types.

Connect to EnterpriseDB in SnapLogic

To connect to EnterpriseDB data in SnapLogic, download and install the CData EnterpriseDB JDBC Driver. Follow the installation dialog. When the installation is complete, the JAR file can be found in the installation directory (C:/Program Files/CData/CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB/lib by default).

Upload the EnterpriseDB JDBC Driver

After installation, upload the JDBC JAR file to a location in SnapLogic (for example, projects/Jerod Johnson) from the Manager tab.

Configure the Connection

Once the JDBC Driver is uploaded, we can create the connection to EnterpriseDB.

  1. Navigate to the Designer tab
  2. Expand "JDBC" from Snaps and drag a "Generic JDBC - Select" snap onto the designer
  3. Click Add Account (or select an existing one) and click "Continue"
  4. In the next form, configure the JDBC connection properties:
    • Under JDBC JARs, add the JAR file we previously uploaded
    • Set JDBC Driver Class to cdata.jdbc.enterprisedb.EnterpriseDBDriver
    • Set JDBC URL to a JDBC connection string for the EnterpriseDB JDBC Driver, for example:

      jdbc:enterprisedb:User=postgres;Password=admin;Database=postgres;Server=127.0.0.1;Port=5444RTK=XXXXXX;

      NOTE: RTK is a trial or full key. Contact our Support team for more information.

      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.

      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.
  5. After entering the connection properties, click "Validate" and "Apply"

Read EnterpriseDB Data

In the form that opens after validating and applying the connection, configure your query.

  • Set Schema name to "EnterpriseDB"
  • Set Table name to a table for EnterpriseDB using the schema name, for example: "EnterpriseDB"."Orders" (use the drop-down to see the full list of available tables)
  • Add Output fields for each item you wish to work with from the table

Save the Generic JDBC - Select snap.

With connection and query configured, click the end of the snap to preview the data (highlighted below).

Once you confirm the results are what you expect, you can add additional snaps to funnel your EnterpriseDB data to another endpoint.

Piping EnterpriseDB Data to External Services

For this article, we will load data in a Google Spreadsheet. You can use any of the supported snaps, or even use a Generic JDBC snap with another CData JDBC Driver, to move data into an external service.

  1. Start by dropping a "Worksheet Writer" snap onto the end of the "Generic JDBC - Select" snap.
  2. Add an account to connect to Google Sheets
  3. Configure the Worksheet Writer snap to write your EnterpriseDB data to a Google Spreadsheet

You can now execute the fully configured pipeline to extract data from EnterpriseDB and push it into a Google Spreadsheet.

Piping External Data to EnterpriseDB

As mentioned above, you can also use the JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB in SnapLogic to write data to EnterpriseDB. Start by adding a Generic JDBC - Insert or Generic JDBC - Update snap to the dashboard.

  1. Select the existing "Account" (connection) or create a new one
  2. Configure the query:
    • Set Schema name to "EnterpriseDB"
    • Set Table name to a table for EnterpriseDB using the schema name, for example: "EnterpriseDB"."Orders" (use the drop-down to see the full list of available tables)
  3. Save the Generic JDBC - Insert/Update snap

At this point, you have configured a snap to write data to EnterpriseDB, inserting new records or updating existing ones.
