Connect to Sage 200 Data and Transfer Data in Talend

Integrate Sage 200 data with standard components and data source configuration wizards in Talend Open Studio.

This article shows how you can easily integrate the CData JDBC driver for Sage 200 into your workflow in Talend. This article uses the CData JDBC Driver for Sage 200 to transfer Sage 200 data in a job flow in Talend.

Connect to Sage 200 in Talend as a JDBC Data Source

You can follow the procedure below to establish a JDBC connection to Sage 200:

  1. Add a new database connection to Sage 200 data: To add a new connection, expand the Metadata node, right-click the Db Connections node, and then click Create Connection.
  2. In the resulting wizard, enter a name for the connection.
  3. On the next page, select Generic JDBC from the DB Type menu and enter the JDBC URL.

    • Schema: Determines which Sage 200 edition you are connecting to. Specify either StandardUK or ProfessionalUK.
    • Subscription Key: Provides access to the APIs that are used to establish a connection. You will first need to log into the Sage 200 API website and subscribe to the API edition that matches your account. You can do so here: https://developer.columbus.sage.com/docs/services/api/uk. Afterwards, the subscription key may be found in your profile after logging into Sage 200.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Sage 200 JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.sage200.jar

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

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:sage200:SubscriptionKey=12345;Schema=StandardUK;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.sage200.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Right-click the connection and then click Retrieve Schema.
  6. Click Next with the default options to select the tables you want to import.
  7. Finish the wizard with the default options.

Output the Banks Table to a Flat File

You can follow the procedure below to transfer the Banks table to a flat file output component:

  1. In the Table Schemas node, drag the tables to the workspace.
  2. In the dialog that is displayed, select the tJDBCInput component.
  3. Next, drag a tFileOutputDelimited component from the Business Intelligence tab of the Palette into the workspace.
  4. Right-click the Banks tJDBCInput component and drag a vector to the output file.

Run the project to transfer the data.
