Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with HBase through Apache Phoenix.

Integrate Phoenix with External Services using SnapLogic



Use the CData JDBC Driver for Phoenix in SnapLogic to integrate Phoenix 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 Phoenix, in their SnapLogic workflows.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Phoenix data. When platforms issue complex SQL queries to Phoenix, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Phoenix 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 Phoenix data using native data types.

Connect to Phoenix in SnapLogic

To connect to Phoenix data in SnapLogic, download and install the CData Phoenix 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 Phoenix/lib by default).

Upload the Phoenix 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 Phoenix.

  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.apachephoenix.ApachePhoenixDriver
    • Set JDBC URL to a JDBC connection string for the Phoenix JDBC Driver, for example:

      jdbc:apachephoenix:Server=localhost;Port=8765;RTK=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 Phoenix JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.apachephoenix.jar

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

      Connect to Apache Phoenix via the Phoenix Query Server. Set the Server and Port (if different from the default port) properties to connect to Apache Phoenix. The Server property will typically be the host name or IP address of the server hosting Apache Phoenix.

      Authenticating to Apache Phoenix

      By default, no authentication will be used (plain). If authentication is configured for your server, set AuthScheme to NEGOTIATE and set the User and Password properties (if necessary) to authenticate through Kerberos.

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

Read Phoenix Data

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

  • Set Schema name to "ApachePhoenix"
  • Set Table name to a table for Phoenix using the schema name, for example: "ApachePhoenix"."MyTable" (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 Phoenix data to another endpoint.

Piping Phoenix 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 Phoenix data to a Google Spreadsheet

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