SAP HANA XS Advanced JDBC Driver

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



Use the CData JDBC Driver for SAP HANA XS Advanced with the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent to access live SAP HANA XS Advanced data from Informatica Cloud.

Informatica Cloud allows you to perform extract, transform, and load (ETL) tasks in the cloud. With the Cloud Secure Agent and the CData JDBC Driver for SAP HANA XS Advanced, you get live access to SAP HANA XS Advanced data, directly within Informatica Cloud. In this article, we will walk through downloading and registering the Cloud Secure Agent, connecting to SAP HANA XS Advanced through the JDBC Driver and generating a mapping that can be used in any Informatica Cloud process.

Informatica Cloud Secure Agent

To work with the SAP HANA XS Advanced data through the JDBC Driver, install the Cloud Secure Agent.

  1. Navigate to the Administrator page in Informatica Cloud
  2. Select the Runtime Environments tab
  3. Click "Download Secure Agent"
  4. Make note of the Install Token
  5. Run the installer on the client machine and register the Cloud Secure Agent with your username and install token

NOTE: It may take some time for all of the Cloud Secure Agent services to get up and running.

Connecting to the SAP HANA XS Advanced JDBC Driver

With the Cloud Secure Agent installed and running, you are ready to connect to SAP HANA XS Advanced through the JDBC Driver. Start by clicking the Connections tab and clicking New Connection. Fill in the following properties for the connection:

  • Connection Name: Name your connection (i.e.: CData SAP HANA XS Advanced Connection)
  • Type: Select "JDBC_IC (Informatica Cloud)"
  • Runtime Environment: Select the runtime environment where you installed the Cloud Secure Agent
  • JDBC Connection URL: Set this to the JDBC URL for SAP HANA XS Advanced. Your URL will look similar to the following:

    jdbc:saphanaxsa: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.

    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.

  • JDBC Jar Directory: Set this to the lib folder in the installation location for the JDBC Driver (on Windows, typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for SAP HANA XS Advanced\)
  • Driver Class: Set this to cdata.jdbc.saphanaxsa.SAPHanaXSADriver
  • Username: Set this to a placeholder value (since SAP HANA XS Advanced does not require a username)
  • Password: Set this to a placeholder value (since SAP HANA XS Advanced does not require a password)

Create a Mapping for SAP HANA XS Advanced Data

With the connection to SAP HANA XS Advanced configured, we can now access SAP HANA XS Advanced data in any Informatica process. The steps below walk through creating a mapping for SAP HANA XS Advanced to another data target.

  1. Navigate to the Data Integration page
  2. Click New.. and select Mapping from the Mappings tab
  3. Click the Source Object and in the Source tab, select the Connection and set the Source Type
  4. Click "Select" to choose the table to map
  5. In the Fields tab, select the fields from the SAP HANA XS Advanced table to map
  6. Click the Target object and configure the Target source, table and fields. In the Field Mapping tab, map the source fields to the target fields.

With the mapping configured, you are ready to start integrating live SAP HANA XS Advanced data with any of the supported connections in Informatica Cloud.
