Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Oracle Sales marketing automation platform including Leads, Contacts, Opportunities, Accounts, and more!



Integrate Oracle Sales data with standard components and data source configuration wizards in RapidMiner Studio.

This article shows how you can easily integrate the CData JDBC driver for Oracle Sales into your processes in RapidMiner. This article uses the CData JDBC Driver for Oracle Sales to transfer Oracle Sales data to a process in RapidMiner.

Connect to Oracle Sales in RapidMiner as a JDBC Data Source

You can follow the procedure below to establish a JDBC connection to Oracle Sales:

  1. Add a new database driver for Oracle Sales: Click Connections -> Manage Database Drivers.
  2. In the resulting wizard, click the Add button and enter a name for the connection.
  3. Enter the prefix for the JDBC URL: jdbc:oraclesalescloud:
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.oraclesalescloud.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.oraclesalescloud.OracleSalesCloudDriver
  6. Create a new Oracle Sales connection: Click Connections -> Manage Database Connections.
  7. Enter a name for your connection.
  8. For Database System, select the Oracle Sales driver you configured previously.
  9. Enter your connection string in the Host box.

    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.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.oraclesalescloud.jar

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

    A typical connection string is below:

    HostURL=https://my.host.oraclecloud.com; Username=abc123; Password=abcdef;
  10. Enter your username and password if necessary.

You can now use your Oracle Sales connection with the various RapidMiner operators in your process. To retrieve Oracle Sales data, drag the Retrieve operator from the Operators view. With the Retrieve operator selected, you can then define which table to retrieve in the Parameters view by clicking the folder icon next to the "repository entry." In the resulting Repository Browser, you can expand your connection node to select the desired example set.

Finally, wire the output to the Retrieve process to a result, and run the process to see the Oracle Sales data.
