JDBC Connection Options

JDBC Connection Options

Use connection options to define a JDBC connection.
Enter connection options in the following format:
... -o option_name=value option_name=value ...
To enter multiple options, separate options with spaces. To enter a value that contains a space or other non-alphanumeric character, enclose the value in quotation marks.
The following table describes JDBC connection options for infacmd isp CreateConnection and UpdateConnection commands:
Option
Description
JDBCDriverClassName
The Java class that you use to connect to the database.
The following list provides the driver class name that you can enter for the applicable database type:
  • DataDirect JDBC driver class name for Oracle:
    com.informatica.jdbc.oracle.OracleDriver
  • DataDirect JDBC driver class name for IBM DB2:
    com.informatica.jdbc.db2.DB2Driver
  • DataDirect JDBC driver class name for Microsoft SQL Server:
    com.informatica.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver
  • DataDirect JDBC driver class name for Sybase ASE:
    com.informatica.jdbc.sybase.SybaseDriver
  • DataDirect JDBC driver class name for Informix:
    com.informatica.jdbc.informix.InformixDriver
  • DataDirect JDBC driver class name for MySQL:
    com.informatica.jdbc.mysql.MySQLDriver
For more information about which driver class to use with specific databases, see the vendor documentation.
MetadataConnString
The URL that you use to connect to the database.
The following list provides the connection string that you can enter for the applicable database type:
  • DataDirect JDBC driver for Oracle:
    jdbc:informatica:oracle://<hostname>:<port>;SID=<sid>
  • DataDirect JDBC driver for IBM DB2:
    jdbc:informatica:db2://<hostname>:<port>;DatabaseName=<database name>
  • DataDirect JDBC driver for Microsoft SQL Server:
    jdbc:informatica:sqlserver://<host>:<port>;DatabaseName=<database name>
  • DataDirect JDBC driver for Sybase ASE:
    jdbc:informatica:sybase://<host>:<port>;DatabaseName=<database name>
  • DataDirect JDBC driver for Informix:
    jdbc:informatica:informix://<host>:<port>;informixServer=<informix server name>;databaseName=<dbName>
  • DataDirect JDBC driver for MySQL:
    jdbc:informatica:mysql://<host>:<port>;DatabaseName=<database name>
For more information about the connection string to use for specific databases, see the vendor documentation for the URL syntax.
EnvironmentSQL
Optional. SQL commands to set the database environment when you connect to the database. The Data Integration Service executes the connection environment SQL each time it connects to the database.
For example,
ALTER SESSION SET CURRENT_SCHEMA=INFA_USR;
Enclose special characters in double quotation marks.
TransactionSQL
Optional. SQL commands to execute before each transaction. The Data Integration Service executes the transaction SQL at the beginning of each transaction.
For example,
SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL SERIALIZABLE;
Enclose special characters in double quotes.
QuoteChar
Optional. The character that you will use for quotes in this connection.
The type of character used to identify special characters and reserved SQL keywords, such as WHERE. The Data Integration Service places the selected character around special characters and reserved SQL keywords. The Data Integration Service also uses this character for the QuoteChar property. Default is DOUBLE_QUOTE.
EnableQuotes
Optional. Select to enable quotes or not for this connection.
When enabled, the Data Integration Service places identifier characters around table, view, schema, synonym, and column names when generating and executing SQL against these objects in the connection. Use if the objects have mixed-case or lowercase names. Valid values are True or False. Default is True.
hadoopConnector
Required if you want to enable Sqoop connectivity for the data object that uses the JDBC connection. The Data Integration Service runs the mapping in the Hadoop run-time environment through Sqoop.
You can configure Sqoop connectivity for relational data objects, customized data objects, and logical data objects that are based on a JDBC-compliant database.
Set the value to
SQOOP_146
to enable Sqoop connectivity.
hadoopConnectorArgs
Optional. Enter the arguments that Sqoop must use to connect to the database. Enclose the Sqoop arguments within single quotes. Separate multiple arguments with a space.
For example,
hadoopConnectorArgs='--<Sqoop argument 1> --<Sqoop argument 2>'
To read data from or write data to Teradata through Teradata Connector for Hadoop (TDCH) specialized connectors for Sqoop, define the TDCH connection factory class in the hadoopConnectorArgs argument. The connection factory class varies based on the TDCH Sqoop Connector that you want to use.
  • To use Cloudera Connector Powered by Teradata, configure the hadoopConnectorArgs argument as follows:
    hadoopConnectorArgs='-Dsqoop.connection.factories=com.cloudera.connector.teradata.TeradataManagerFactory'
  • To use Hortonworks Connector for Teradata (powered by the Teradata Connector for Hadoop), configure the hadoopConnectorArgs argument as follows:
    hadoopConnectorArgs='-Dsqoop.connection.factories=org.apache.sqoop.teradata.TeradataManagerFactory'
If you do not enter Sqoop arguments, the Data Integration Service constructs the Sqoop command based on the JDBC connection properties.
