SAP HANA XS Advanced JDBC Driver

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



Integrate SAP HANA XS Advanced data with standard components and data source configuration wizards in Talend Open Studio.

This article shows how you can easily integrate the CData JDBC driver for SAP HANA XS Advanced into your workflow in Talend. This article uses the CData JDBC Driver for SAP HANA XS Advanced to transfer SAP HANA XS Advanced data in a job flow in Talend.

Connect to SAP HANA XS Advanced in Talend as a JDBC Data Source

You can follow the procedure below to establish a JDBC connection to SAP HANA XS Advanced:

  1. Add a new database connection to SAP HANA XS Advanced data: To add a new connection, expand the Metadata node, right-click the Db Connections node, and then click Create Connection.
  2. In the resulting wizard, enter a name for the connection.
  3. On the next page, select Generic JDBC from the DB Type menu and 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
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.saphanaxsa.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Right-click the connection and then click Retrieve Schema.
  6. Click Next with the default options to select the tables you want to import.
  7. Finish the wizard with the default options.

Output the Table to a Flat File

You can follow the procedure below to transfer the table to a flat file output component:

  1. In the Table Schemas node, drag the tables to the workspace.
  2. In the dialog that is displayed, select the tJDBCInput component.
  3. Next, drag a tFileOutputDelimited component from the Business Intelligence tab of the Palette into the workspace.
  4. Right-click the tJDBCInput component and drag a vector to the output file.

Run the project to transfer the data.
