Connect to SAP HANA Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to SAP HANA data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for SAP HANA enables you to access SAP HANA as a JDBC data source, providing integration with rapid development tools in IDEs. This article shows how to use the data source configuration wizard to connect to SAP HANA data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for SAP HANA

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to SAP HANA data.

  1. In the Data Sources window, right-click and then click Add Data Source -> DB Data Source.
  2. In the Data Source Properties dialog that appears, the following properties are required:

    • JDBC Driver Files: Click the button next to this menu to add the JDBC Driver file cdata.jdbc.saphana.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.saphana.SAPHANADriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:saphana: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      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.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:saphana:User=system;Password=mypassword;Server=localhost;Database=systemdb;

Edit and Save SAP HANA Data

To discover schema information, right-click the data source you just created and click Refresh Tables. To query a table, right-click it and then click Open Tables Editor. You can also modify records in the Table Editor.
