SAP HANA XS Advanced JDBC Driver

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



Transfer SAP HANA XS Advanced data using the visual workflow in the CloverDX data integration tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for SAP HANA XS Advanced enables you to use the data transformation components in CloverDX (formerly CloverETL) to work with SAP HANA XS Advanced as sources. In this article, you will use the JDBC Driver for SAP HANA XS Advanced to set up a simple transfer into a flat file.

Connect to SAP HANA XS Advanced as a JDBC Data Source

  1. Create the connection to SAP HANA XS Advanced data. In a new CloverDX graph, right-click the Connections node in the Outline pane and click Connections -> Create Connection. The Database Connection wizard is displayed.
  2. Click the plus icon to load a driver from a JAR. Browse to the lib subfolder of the installation directory and select the cdata.jdbc.saphanaxsa.jar file.
  3. Enter the JDBC URL.

    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.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.saphanaxsa.jar

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

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

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

Query SAP HANA XS Advanced Data with the DBInputTable Component

  1. Drag a DBInputTable from the Readers selection of the Palette onto the job flow and double-click it to open the configuration editor.
  2. In the DB connection property, select the SAP HANA XS Advanced JDBC data source from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter the SQL query. For example: SELECT , FROM WHERE = ''

Write the Output of the Query to a UniversalDataWriter

  1. Drag a UniversalDataWriter from the Writers selection onto the jobflow.
  2. Double-click the UniversalDataWriter to open the configuration editor and add a file URL.
  3. Right-click the DBInputTable and then click Extract Metadata.
  4. Connect the output port of the DBInputTable to the UniversalDataWriter.
  5. In the resulting Select Metadata menu for the UniversalDataWriter, choose the table. (You can also open this menu by right-clicking the input port for the UniversalDataWriter.)
  6. Click Run to write to the file.
