JDBC V2 Connection Properties

JDBC V2 Connection Properties

When you set up a JDBC V2 connection, you must configure the connection properties.
The order of the connection properties might vary depending on the tool where you view them.
The following table describes the JDBC V2 connection properties:
Property
Description
Name
The name of the connection. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. You can change this property after you create the connection. The name cannot exceed 128 characters, contain spaces, or contain the following special characters:~ ` ! $ % ^ & * ( ) - + = { [ } ] | \ : ; " ' < , > . ? /
ID
String that the Data Integration Service uses to identify the connection. The ID is not case sensitive. It must be 255 characters or less and must be unique in the domain. You cannot change this property after you create the connection. Default value is the connection name.
Description
The description of the connection. The description cannot exceed 4,000 characters.
Location
The domain where you want to create the connection.
Type
The connection type. Select JDBC V2.
The
Details
tab contains the connection attributes of the JDBC V2 connection. The following table describes the connection attributes:
Property
Description
Username
The database user name.
User name with permissions to access the database that supports the Type 4 JDBC driver.
Password
The password for the database user name.
Schema Name
Optional. The schema name to connect in the database.
If you do not specify the schema name, all the schemas available in the database are listed.
JDBC Driver Class Name
Name of the JDBC driver class.
The following list provides the driver class name that you can enter for the applicable database type:
  • JDBC driver class name for Azure SQL Database:
    com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver
  • JDBC driver class name for Aurora PostgreSQL:
    org.postgresql.Driver
For more information about which driver class to use with specific databases, see the third-party vendor documentation.
Connection String
Connection string to connect to the database.
Use the following connection string:
jdbc:<subprotocol>:<subname>
The following list provides sample connection strings that you can enter for the applicable database type:
  • Connection string for Azure SQL Database JDBC driver:
    jdbc:sqlserver://<host>:<port>;database=<database_name>
  • Connection string for Aurora PostgreSQL JDBC driver:
    jdbc:postgresql://<host>:<port>[/<database_name>]
For more information about the connection string to use with specific drivers, see the third-party vendor documentation.
Sub Type
The database type to which you want to connect.
You can select from the following database types to connect:
  • Azure SQL Database
    . Connects to Azure SQL Database.
  • PostgreSQL
    . Connects to Aurora PostgreSQL database.
  • Others
    . Connects to any database that supports the Type 4 JDBC driver.
Support Mixed-case Identifiers
Enable if the database uses case-sensitive identifiers. When enabled, the Data Integration Service encloses all identifiers within the character selected for the
SQL Identifier Character
property.
For example, Aurora PostgreSQL database supports mixed-cased characters. You must enable this property to connect to the Aurora PostgreSQL database.
When the
SQL Identifier Character
property is set to none, the
Support Mixed-case Identifiers
property is disabled.
SQL Identifier Character
Type of character that the database uses to enclose delimited identifiers in SQL queries. The available characters depend on the database type.
Select (None) if the database uses regular identifiers. When the Data Integration Service generates SQL queries, the service does not place delimited characters around any identifiers.
Select a character if the database uses delimited identifiers. When the Data Integration Service generates SQL queries, the service encloses delimited identifiers within this character.
