Database integration can be lengthy and tricky as it stores heaps of important data about the customers, inventories, or any other company information. This data is revoked and used by the business users to draw actionable insights through analytics and to make business decisions. A database integration helps in centralizing your data and provides easy data access to multiple stakeholders.
In most of the cases, an enterprise uses JDBC connection to access various database types. To support real-time integration, many solution providers offer pre-built JDBC connector to establish a connection with underlying database and enterprise applications.
But the JDBC connector provides by DXchange integration platform is different as it provides a pre-built JDBC connector that can be established with a wizard-driven approach to quickly establish a database connection with the popular database. It saves you time to write lengthy queries to perform database operations. You can easily use a DXchange JDBC Connector to run various SQL queries such as select, insert, update and delete queries on the JDBC compliant Database. This JDBC Connector currently supports four Database out of the box (Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL and PostgreSQL), and any other JDBC compliant database by loading the necessary driver classes.
Not this, DXchange JDBC connector one can easily explore and browse database schemas and tables. Let’s see some of the highlighting features of JDBC connector provided by DXchange Integration Cloud in detail –
1. Wizard-driven Database/JDBC connector – You can easily access your database schemas and tables, along with Join and Where clauses with the DXchange Database connector, that too with a simple wizard. It lets you access your database to a granular level where you can browse a column or field from a table to perform operations on them for integration. Now, a business user can quickly generate a query without knowing writing SQL queries.
The following video describes the process of accessing a MySQL database with DXchange Database connector.
This executes the database directly with a click and configure approach and makes the integration process quicker and smoother.
2. Custom SQL Queries – Database queries can be complicated sometimes with the need for nested SQL statements. For such scenarios, DXchange Database connector provides a provision to write custom SQL queries. While most of the database execution can be done with the wizard-based functionality, the remaining complicated cases like nested queries can be done with the custom SQL queries operation.
3. Access to Custom Databases – DXchange Integration Cloud supports Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL and PostgreSQL Databases out-of-the-box. However, customers can still connect to other JDBC compliant databases. They can import the appropriate database driver class and write queries to perform operations on those databases. The configurations required for such connections is easy and can be deployed with a few clicks on the integration platform interface. The connector has the functionality to connect to all the JDBC compliant databases and is not restricted to just the four databases that are provided by default.
4. DX Plugs – A plug defines how you interact with an application or a database and relates to a specific action. It lets you create reusable entities which can be defined once and can be re-used multiple times within one single process or multiple processes. This functionality helps in building database operations which can be saved into components and can be used in future operations. These components can be selected and deployed as an individual unit in the designer canvas of the integration platform with an easy application of few clicks.
DX Plugs also allows the users to modify the connection/action related properties within the process design canvas, which provides an additional feature to the user to override any connection/action related properties. Plugs greatly help in driving efficiencies while implementing the integration processes.
Database integration with on-prem and cloud applications is significant as it promises to give faster and reliable access to the data which is a prerequisite to survive in a fast-paced digital world. It empowers an enterprise to efficiently operate in the world of perpetually rising data so that it can serve its customer with the highest level of efficiency.
