SAP Hybris C4C Icon SAP Hybris JDBC Driver

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.

A PostgreSQL Interface for SAP Hybris C4C Data

Use the Remoting features of the SAP Hybris C4C JDBC Driver to create a PostgreSQL entry-point for data access.

There are a vast number of PostgreSQL clients available on the Internet. From standard Drivers to BI and Analytics tools, PostgreSQL is a popular interface for data access. Using our JDBC Drivers, you can now create PostgreSQL entry-points that you can connect to from any standard client.

To access SAP Hybris C4C data as a PostgreSQL database, use the CData JDBC Driver for SAP Hybris C4C and a JDBC foreign data wrapper (FDW). In this article, we compile the FDW, install it, and query SAP Hybris C4C data from PostgreSQL Server.

Connect to SAP Hybris C4C Data as a JDBC Data Source

To connect to SAP Hybris C4C as a JDBC data source, you will need the following:

  • Driver JAR path: The JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  • Driver class: cdata.jdbc.saphybrisc4c.SAPHybrisC4CDriver

  • JDBC URL: The URL must start with "jdbc:saphybrisc4c:" and can include any of the connection properties in name-value pairs separated with semicolons.

    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.

    A typical JDBC URL is below:


Build the JDBC Foreign Data Wrapper

The Foreign Data Wrapper can be installed as an extension to PostgreSQL, without recompiling PostgreSQL. The jdbc2_fdw extension is used as an example (downloadable here).

  1. Add a symlink from the shared object for your version of the JRE to /usr/lib/ For example: ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/lib/amd64/server/ /usr/lib/
  2. Start the build: make install USE_PGXS=1

Query SAP Hybris C4C Data as a PostgreSQL Database

After you have installed the extension, follow the steps below to start executing queries to SAP Hybris C4C data:

  1. Log into your database.
  2. Load the extension for the database: CREATE EXTENSION jdbc2_fdw;
  3. Create a server object for SAP Hybris C4C: CREATE SERVER SAPHybrisC4C FOREIGN DATA WRAPPER jdbc2_fdw OPTIONS ( drivername 'cdata.jdbc.saphybrisc4c.SAPHybrisC4CDriver', url 'jdbc:saphybrisc4c:User=user;Password=password;', querytimeout '15', jarfile '/home/MyUser/CData/CData\ JDBC\ Driver\ for\ Salesforce MyDriverEdition/lib/cdata.jdbc.saphybrisc4c.jar');
  4. Create a user mapping for the username and password of a user known to the MySQL daemon. CREATE USER MAPPING for postgres SERVER SAPHybrisC4C OPTIONS ( username 'admin', password 'test');
  5. Create a foreign table in your local database: postgres=# CREATE FOREIGN TABLE accountcollection ( accountcollection_id text, accountcollection_ObjectID text, accountcollection_AccountName numeric) SERVER SAPHybrisC4C OPTIONS ( table_name 'accountcollection');
You can now execute read/write commands to SAP Hybris C4C: postgres=# SELECT * FROM accountcollection;
