SAP HANA XS Advanced JDBC Driver

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



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

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

Integrate SAP HANA XS Advanced Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register SAP HANA XS Advanced 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.

    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.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:saphanaxsa:OAuthClientID=my-ouath-client-id;OAuthClientSecret=my-oauth-client-secret;URL=https://hxehost:51027/euro.xsodata;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to SAP HANA XS Advanced data. SAP HANA XS Advanced entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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