How to view Oracle Sales data in RAD Studio Data Explorer using the CData FireDAC Components for Oracle Sales.

Embarcadero RAD Studio provides a development environment for Delphi and C++Builder applications. With the CData FireDAC Components for Oracle Sales, you gain access to live Oracle Sales data within RAD Studio, abstracting the data into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to both retrieve and update Oracle Sales data. This article will walk through connecting to Oracle Sales using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to Oracle Sales Data Using Data Explorer

You can create a simple application for displaying Oracle Sales data by utilizing the CData FireDAC Components for Oracle Sales and a new VCL Forms Application:

  1. Open the Data Explorer in RAD Studio and expand FireDAC.
  2. Right-click on CData Oracle Sales Data Source and click Add New Connection.

  3. Name the connection.
  4. Fill in the necessary connection parameters and click OK.

    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.

  5. Back in the Data Explorer, expand the tables for the connection.
  6. Create a new VCL Forms application and drag a table (for example: Opportunities) onto the form.

  7. Select the OpportunitiesTable object on the form and set the Active property to true.
  8. Right-click on the object, bind visually, and link everything (*) to a new control (TStringGrid).

  9. Arrange the TStringGrid on the form and run the application to see the Opportunities data.
