Access SAP Hybris C4C Data in Anypoint Using SQL

Create a simple Mule Application that uses HTTP and SQL with the CData Mule Connector for SAP Hybris C4C to create a JSON endpoint for SAP Hybris C4C data.

The CData Mule Connector for SAP Hybris C4C connects SAP Hybris C4C data to Mule applications enabling read , write, update, and delete functionality with familiar SQL queries. The Connector allows users to easily create Mule Applications to backup, transform, report, and analyze SAP Hybris C4C data.

This article demonstrates how to use the CData Mule Connector for SAP Hybris C4C inside of a Mule project to create a Web interface for SAP Hybris C4C data. The application created allows you to request SAP Hybris C4C data using an HTTP request and have the results returned as JSON. The exact same procedure outlined below can be used with any CData Mule Connector to create a Web interface for the 170+ available data sources.

  1. Create a new Mule Project in Anypoint Studio.
  2. Add an HTTP Connector to the Message Flow.
  3. Configure the address for the HTTP Connector.
  4. Add a CData SAP Hybris C4C Connector to the same flow, after the HTTP Connector.
  5. Create a new Connection (or edit an existing one) and configure the properties to connect to SAP Hybris C4C (see below). Once the connection is configured, click Test Connection to ensure the connectivity to SAP Hybris C4C.

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

  6. Configure the CData SAP Hybris C4C Connector.
    1. Set the Operation to 'Select with Streaming'.
    2. Set the Query type to Dynamic.
    3. Set the SQL query to SELECT * FROM #[message.inboundProperties.'http.query.params'.get('table')] to parse the URL parameter table and use it as the target of the SELECT query. You can customize the query further by referencing other potential URL parameters.
  7. Add a Transform Message Component to the flow.
    1. Map the Payload from the input to the Map in the output.
    2. Set the Output script to the following to convert the payload to JSON:
      %dw 1.0
      %output application/json
      ---
      payload
              
  8. To view your SAP Hybris C4C data, navigate to the address you configured for the HTTP Connector (localhost:8081 by default) and pass a table name as the table URL parameter: http://localhost:8081?table=AccountCollection
    The AccountCollection data is available as JSON in your Web browser and any other tools capable of consuming JSON endpoints.

At this point, you have a simple Web interface for working with SAP Hybris C4C data (as JSON data) in custom apps and a wide variety of BI, reporting, and ETL tools. Download a free, 30 day trial of the Mule Connector for SAP Hybris C4C and see the CData difference in your Mule Applications today.
