SAP HANA XS Advanced ADO.NET Provider

Rapidly create and deploy powerful .NET applications that integrate with SAP HANA XS Advanced.



This article demonstrates how to access SAP HANA XS Advanced data from PowerBuilder using the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP HANA XS Advanced.

The CData ADO.NET providers are easy-to-use, standards-based controls that can be used from any platform or development technology that supports Microsoft .NET, including PowerBuilder. This article shows how to use the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP HANA XS Advanced in PowerBuilder.

This article shows how to create a basic PowerBuilder application that uses the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP HANA XS Advanced to retrieve data.

  1. In a new WPF Window Application solution, add all the Visual Controls needed for the connection properties. Below is a typical connection string:

    OAuthClientID=my-ouath-client-id;OAuthClientSecret=my-oauth-client-secret;URL=https://hxehost:51027/euro.xsodata;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

    SAP HANA XSA uses the OAuth authentication standard. Before connecting, it is necessary to establish an SAP HANA XSA OData Service. See the OAuth section in the Help documentation for a guide.

  2. Add the DataGrid control from the .NET controls.
  3. Configure the columns of the DataGrid control. Below are several columns from the Account table: <DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Margin="13,249,12,14" Name="datagrid1" TabIndex="70" ItemsSource="{Binding}"> <DataGrid.Columns> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="idColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=Id}" Header="Id" Width="SizeToHeader" /> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="nameColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=}" Header="" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP HANA XS Advanced assembly.

Connect the DataGrid

Once the visual elements have been configured, you can use standard ADO.NET objects like Connection, Command, and DataAdapter to populate a DataTable with the results of an SQL query:

System.Data.CData.SAPHanaXSA.SAPHanaXSAConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.SAPHanaXSA.SAPHanaXSAConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.SAPHanaXSA.SAPHanaXSACommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.SAPHanaXSA.SAPHanaXSACommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.SAPHanaXSA.SAPHanaXSADataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.SAPHanaXSA.SAPHanaXSADataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

The code above can be used to bind data from the specified query to the DataGrid.
