Connect to SAP HANA Data in RazorSQL

Connect to SAP HANA from wizards and query SAP HANA data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for SAP HANA enables standards-based access from third-party tools, from wizards in IDEs to data management and analysis tools. This article shows how to connect to SAP HANA using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for SAP HANA Data

  1. Open the RazorSQL application and, in the Connections menu, select Add Connection Profile -> Other -> JDBC.
  2. In the Connection Wizard that appears, set the following properties:
    • Driver Location: Set this property to the path to the lib subfolder in the installation directory.
    • Driver Class: Set the driver class to cdata.jdbc.saphana.SAPHANADriver.
    • Username: Enter the username. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • Password: Enter the password. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • JDBC URL: Enter connection parameters. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:saphana: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      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;

Query SAP HANA Data and Select Tables

After establishing a connection, the wizard will close and the connection will be available in the connections panel. You can then query the tables.
