SAP Business One DI JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with SAP Business One DI.



Use the CData JDBC Driver for SAP Business One DI with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live SAP Business One DI data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for SAP Business One DI, you get live access to SAP Business One DI data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to SAP Business One DI through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the SAP Business One DI data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the SAP Business One DI JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to SAP Business One DI through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData SAP Business One DI Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for SAP Business One DI. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:sapbusinessonedi:Server=ServerName;DBServerType=MSSQL_2016;CompanyDB=SBODemoCA;User=manager;Password=manager;

    To connect to SAP Business One DI data, specify the following connection properties:

    • DBServerType: The type of server being connected to.
    • Server: The name or IP address of the Business One DI server to connect to.
    • CompanyDB: The company to connect to.
    • User: The username used when connecting to the LicenseServer.
    • Password: The password used when connecting to the LicenseServer.
    • LicenseServer (optional): Set this if your License Server is different from the Server.
    • UseTrusted (optional): Set to TRUE to connect using Windows credentials.

    Built-In Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the SAP Business One DI JDBC Driver. Either double-click the .jar file or execute the .jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.sapbusinessonedi.jar

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

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for SAP Business One DI\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.sapbusinessonedi.SAPBusinessOneDIDriver
  • Username: Set this to the username for SAP Business One DI
  • Password: Set this to the password for SAP Business One DI

Create a Mapping for SAP Business One DI Data

With the connection to SAP Business One DI configured, we can now access SAP Business One DI data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for SAP Business One DI to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the SAP Business One DI table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live SAP Business One DI data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud.
