CData Connect



Execute MySQL queries against Oracle Sales data from Node.js.

You can use CData Connect Cloud to query Oracle Sales data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to create a virtual database for Oracle Sales in Connect Cloud and start querying using Node.js.

CData Connect Cloud provides a pure MySQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for Oracle Sales, allowing you to easily query live Oracle Sales data in Node.js — without replicating the data to a natively supported database. As you query data in Node.js, CData Connect Cloud pushes all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to Oracle Sales, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return Oracle Sales data.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for Oracle Sales Data

CData Connect Cloud uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Connect Cloud and click Databases.
  2. Select "Oracle Sales" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to Oracle Sales.

    Oracle Sales uses Basic authentication over SSL; after setting the following connection properties, you are ready to connect:

    • Username: Set this to the user name that you use to log into your Oracle Cloud service.
    • Password: Set this to your password.
    • HostURL: Set this to the Web address (URL) of your Oracle Cloud service.

  4. Click Test Database.
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to Oracle Sales data from any MySQL client.

Query Oracle Sales from Node.js

The following example shows how to define a connection and execute queries to Oracle Sales with the MySQL module. You will need the following information:

  • Host name, or address, and port: The address of your instance of the Connect Cloud (myinstance.cdatacloud.net) and the port (3306)
  • Username and password: The username and password of a user you authorized on Connect Cloud
  • Database name: The database you configured for Oracle Sales (oraclesalesclouddb)

Connect to Oracle Sales data and start executing queries with the code below:

var mysql      = require('mysql');
var fs         = require('fs');
var connection = mysql.createConnection({
  host     : 'myinstance.cdatacloud.net',
  database : 'oraclesalesclouddb',
  port	   : '3306',
  user     : 'admin',
  password : 'password',
  ssl      : {
    ca : fs.readFileSync('C:/certs/myCA.pem')
  }
});
connection.connect();
connection.query('SELECT * FROM Opportunities', function(err, rows, fields) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(rows);
});

connection.end();
