This article demonstrates how to access Oracle Financials Cloud data from Appeon PowerBuilder using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Oracle Financials Cloud.

This article demonstrates using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Oracle Financials Cloud in PowerBuilder, showcasing the ease of use and compatibility of these standards-based controls across various platforms and development technologies that support Microsoft .NET, including Appeon PowerBuilder.

This article shows how to create a basic PowerBuilder application that uses the CData ADO.NET Provider for Oracle Financials Cloud to retrieve data.

  1. In a new WPF Window Application solution, add all the Visual Controls needed for the connection properties. Below is a typical connection string:


    Using Basic Authentication

    You must set the following to authenticate to Oracle ERP:

    • Url: The Url of the account to connect to. Typically, the URL of your Oracle Cloud service. For example,
    • User: The username of your account.
    • Password: The password of your account.

  2. Add the DataGrid control from the .NET controls.
  3. Configure the columns of the DataGrid control. Below are several columns from the Account table: <DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Margin="13,249,12,14" Name="datagrid1" TabIndex="70" ItemsSource="{Binding}"> <DataGrid.Columns> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="idColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=Id}" Header="Id" Width="SizeToHeader" /> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="nameColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=InvoiceId}" Header="InvoiceId" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for Oracle Financials Cloud assembly.

Connect the DataGrid

Once the visual elements have been configured, you can use standard ADO.NET objects like Connection, Command, and DataAdapter to populate a DataTable with the results of an SQL query:

System.Data.CData.OracleERP.OracleERPConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.OracleERP.OracleERPConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.OracleERP.OracleERPCommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.OracleERP.OracleERPCommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.OracleERP.OracleERPDataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.OracleERP.OracleERPDataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

The code above can be used to bind data from the specified query to the DataGrid.
