Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with SAP HANA databases.

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for SAP HANA.

The CData JDBC Driver for SAP HANA seamlessly integrates SAP HANA data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access SAP HANA data as a database. This article shows how to create a JDBC source for SAP HANA in DBArtisan. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate SAP HANA Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register SAP HANA data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    Set the Server, Database and Port properties to specify the address of your SAP Hana database to interact with. Set the User and the Password properties to authenticate to the server.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.saphana.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

  6. Finish the wizard to connect to SAP HANA data. SAP HANA entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with SAP HANA data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the SAP HANA API.
