Straightforward SAP Hybris C4C integration. Now accessing SAP Hybris C4C Accounts, Activities, Orders, Customers, etc. from any JDBC client is as easy as querying a database.



Create a simple JRuby app with access to live SAP Hybris C4C data.

JRuby is a high-performance, stable, fully threaded Java implementation of the Ruby programming language. The CData JDBC Driver for SAP Hybris C4C makes it easy to integrate connectivity to live SAP Hybris C4C data in JRuby. This article shows how to create a simple JRuby app that connects to SAP Hybris C4C data, executes a query, and displays the results.

Configure a JDBC Connection to SAP Hybris C4C Data

Before creating the app, note the installation location for the JAR file for the JDBC Driver (typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for SAP Hybris C4C\lib).

JRuby natively supports JDBC, so you can easily connect to SAP Hybris C4C and execute SQL queries. Initialize the JDBC connection with the getConnection function of the java.sql.DriverManager class.

SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer uses basic authentication. Set the User and Password to your login credentials.

Built-in Connection String Designer

For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the SAP Hybris C4C JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

java -jar cdata.jdbc.saphybrisc4c.jar

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

Below is a typical JDBC connection string for SAP Hybris C4C:

jdbc:saphybrisc4c:User=user;Password=password;

Create a JRuby App with Connectivity to SAP Hybris C4C Data

Create a new Ruby file (for example: SAPHybrisC4CSelect.rb) and open it in a text editor. Copy the following code into your file:

require 'java' require 'rubygems' require 'C:/Program Files/CData/CData JDBC Driver for SAP Hybris C4C 2018/lib/cdata.jdbc.saphybrisc4c.jar' url = "jdbc:saphybrisc4c:User=user;Password=password;" conn = java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url) stmt = conn.createStatement rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT ObjectID, AccountName FROM AccountCollection") while (rs.next) do puts rs.getString(1) + ' ' + rs.getString(2) end

With the file completed, you are ready to display your SAP Hybris C4C data with JRuby. To do so, simply run your file from the command line:

jruby -S SAPHybrisC4CSelect.rb
