TIBCO DV Adapters


Use the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for SAP Hybris C4C to create a SAP Hybris C4C data source in TIBCO Data Virtualization Studio and gain access to live SAP Hybris C4C data from your TDV Server.

TIBCO Data Virtualization (TDV) is an enterprise data virtualization solution that orchestrates access to multiple and varied data sources. When paired with the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for SAP Hybris C4C, you get federated access to live SAP Hybris C4C data directly within TIBCO Data Virtualization. This article walks through deploying an adapter and creating a new data source based on SAP Hybris C4C.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData TIBCO DV Adapter offers unmatched performance for interacting with live SAP Hybris C4C data. When you issue complex SQL queries to SAP Hybris C4C, the adapter pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to SAP Hybris C4C. Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze SAP Hybris C4C data using native data types.

Deploy the SAP Hybris C4C TIBCO DV Adapter

  1. In a console, navigate to the bin folder in the TDV Server installation directory. If there is a current version of the adapter installed, you will need to undeploy it.

    .\server_util.bat -server localhost -user admin -password ******** -undeploy -version 1 -name SAPHybrisC4C
    
  2. Extract the CData TIBCO DV Adapter to a local folder and deploy the JAR file (tdv.saphybrisc4c.jar) to the server from the extract location.

    .\server_util.bat -server localhost -user admin -password ******** -deploy -package /PATH/TO/tdv.saphybrisc4c.jar
    

You may need to restart the server to ensure the new JAR file is loaded properly, which can be accomplished by running the composite.bat script located at: C:\Program Files\TIBCO\TDV Server <version>\bin. Note that reauthenticating to the TDV Studio is required after restarting the server.

Sample Restart Call

.\composite.bat monitor restart
Once you deploy the adapter, you can create a new data source in TDV Studio for SAP Hybris C4C.

Create a SAP Hybris C4C Data Source in TDV Studio

With the CData TIBCO DV Adapter for SAP Hybris C4C, you can easily create a data source for SAP Hybris C4C and introspect the data source to add resources to TDV.

Create the Data Source

  1. Right-click on the folder you wish to add the data source to and select New -> New Data Source.
  2. Scroll until you find the adapter (e.g. SAP Hybris C4C) and click Next.
  3. Name the data source (e.g. CData SAP Hybris C4C Source).
  4. Fill in the required connection properties.

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

  5. Click Create & Close.

Introspect the Data Source

Once the data source is created, you can introspect the data source by right-clicking and selecting Open. In the dashboard, click Add/Remove Resources and select the Tables, Views, and Stored Procedures to include as part of the data source. Click Next and Finish to add the selected SAP Hybris C4C tables, views, and stored procedures as resources.

After creating and introspecting the data source, you are ready to work with SAP Hybris C4C data in TIBCO Data Virtualization just like you would any other relational data source. You can create views, query using SQL, publish the data source, and more.
