Sybase BizTalk Adapter

Powerful BizTalk Adapters that allow you to easily connect BizTalk Server with live Sybase databases through standard orchestrations.

Use the Sybase Adapters to synchronize with data stored in Sybase databases. Perfect for data synchronization, local back-ups, workflow automation, and more!



Use the adapter for Sybase with a solicit-response send port to execute updategrams and data manipulation SQL in BizTalk.

This section provides step-by-step instructions for creating, configuring, and testing a static solicit-response send port using the CData BizTalk Adapter for Sybase. You can use a static solicit-response send port to execute commands and access the results in BizTalk. You can use send ports to execute updategram commands, SQL commands, and stored procedure operations.

Create and Configure the Send Port

Create a static solicit-response send port and configure it to use the adapter as its transport type.

  1. If you have not already done so, open your BizTalk application in the BizTalk Administration Console.
  2. In the node for your BizTalk application, right-click Send Ports and select New -> Static Solicit-Response Send Port. The Send Port Properties dialog is displayed.
  3. In the Send Port properties, enter a name for the receive port.
  4. In the Transport Type menu, select CData.Sybase;.
  5. In the Send pipeline menu, select the default option, PassThruTransmit.
  6. In the Receive pipeline menu, select the default option, PassThruReceive.

Configure the Adapter

Define the command the adapter will execute in the Transport Properties dialog.

  1. In the send port properties, click the Configure button. The Adapter Transport Properties dialog is displayed.
  2. In the CommandType property, select the command type you want.
  3. If you want to execute an SQL command, enter the command in the SQL Command box.
Refer to the "Adapter Configuration" chapter in the help documentation for a description of the various properties and their functions.

Configure the Connection to Sybase

Configure credentials and other properties required to connect to Sybase in the Connection String Options dialog.

  1. In the send port properties, click Configure. The adapter properties dialog is displayed.
  2. Click the button in the Connection String property. The Connection String Options dialog is displayed.
  3. Enter the connection properties. Below is a typical connection string: User=myuser;Password=mypassword;Server=localhost;Database=mydatabase;Charset=iso_1;

    To authenticate with Sybase, set User and Password. Additionally, set IntegratedSecurity to true to use Windows authentication. Otherwise, Sybase authentication is used. Set the Server and Database properties. To secure connections with TLS/SSL, set Encrypt to true.

    Enable jConnect

    In order to work with your Sybase data, enable the jConnect option on your Sybase instance. If you are unsure whether jConnect is enabled, you can run the following command: alter database upgrade JCONNECT ON ;

  4. Click Test Connection to verify the values and test connectivity.
Refer to the "Connection String Options" chapter in the help documentation for a description of the various properties and their functions. The updategram tutorial for the adapter for Sybase walks through the steps to create a simple application that uses a solicit-response send port to execute an insert updategram to Sybase.
