In this tutorial, learn how to REST-enable your data source via JDBC in just eight minutes and six steps.
Do you need to RESTify your data source? Use DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline for OData REST access to relational JDBC data sources. Hybrid Data Pipeline is a self-hostable hybrid connectivity solution that you can run in the cloud or on-premises for SQL (ODBC, JDBC) or REST (OData) connectivity to your data.
REST APIs allow you to leverage existing investment in data storage, while securely opening that data to web and mobile apps without actually moving or copying the data. HTML5, web or mobile applications can access the data in real-time via the REST APIs.
But because every database REST API is different, you need OData. OData is an open protocol to allow the creation and consumption of query-able and interoperable REST-ful APIs in a simple and standard way. While every database REST API is unique, OData is both an industry standard and an international standard, and is sometimes called “SQL for the web.”
Progress DataDirect delivers a single point of OData configuration for all data sources. With one interface, you can create OData endpoints to each of your data stores. Then, connect to those endpoints with your application.
Hybrid Data Pipeline now enables end users to plug-in JDBC drivers and access data using those drivers, alone or in combination with any other data sources supported by Hybrid Data Pipeline. This means that you can create an OData endpoint using a JDBC connector.
The following steps are shown in the video:
Watch the short video to see each detailed step for setting up your JDBC connection, configuring OData, creating a Salesforce Connect External Object and returning real-time data. In just eight minutes, you can learn how to REST-enable your data source via JDBC!
