2.5 Database Integration (JDBC)

2.5.1  Database Integration (JDBC)

Database Integration includes Oracle, SQL Server, Ms Access, and MySQL Integration.

 A. SF – Agent: JDBC Oracle Integration

Use Case:

  • Users want to synchronize Account data from the Salesforce system to their DBMS system and vice versa.
  • In this use case, we use Oracle as DBMS to/from which Account data will be synchronized from/to Salesforce respectively.

Requisites:

  • Oracle DBMS has been installed on User-machine

  • Integration Agent installed on User-machine

  • Salesforce Organization setup for the User

Assume that on Salesforce, there is Account data created today as follows:

  • Mappings defined for Account Synchronization (SF-Agent and Agent-SF)

SF – Agent (Oracle)

Agent (Oracle) – SF

  • It is required that the client tool for those DBMS exists on the client machine where it will be used for doing batch integration (SF – Agent).

For example, in this case of Oracle, the SQLPLUS.exe tool is required.

In the case of the SQL server, either osql.exe or sqlcmd.exe is required depending on the version of the SQL Server.

  • For this version of the Integration Agent, only Oracle and SQL server are supported.

Implementation:

Step 1: DBMS configuration

  • Log in to Oracle and create a table named “ACCOUNTIN” on Oracle system with the following structures:

Step 2: Agent UI interaction

  • Run Integration Agent UI

A.  Salesforce – Agent Integration:

  • Create a New Integration (for SF-Agent integration) as follows:
  • Either click Integration Wizard link on the above figure or 
  • Integration Properties Setup link as shown in the below figure:

Supply your Salesforce organization info and environment and click “Test Salesforce Connection” for Testing.

Remark
There are two Integrations fields here:

  • Integration (Agent – SF): this one is used to do integration from Agent to Salesforce
  • Integration (SF – Agent): this one is used to do integration from Salesforce to Agent.

We need to create a new integration for SF – Agent by clicking New Integration:

  • Choose Integration Direction “SF – Agent” among (SF-Agent; Agent-SF)
  • Name your integration
  • Choose the appropriate adapter type. Here we use JDBC adapter and name the adapter
  • On Adapter Property information section
  • Choose Database Type Oracle among (“Oracle” or “SQLServer”)
  • Fill in all necessary information needed to make connections and data manipulation to the Oracle system.

Please see section “FAQs” for more details 

  • Click “Test Source Connection” to test the connection to the specified Oracle instance
  • Click “Save & Next” to save the Integration and its Adapter and Properties and to create a New Interface and fill in all necessary info as shown in the below figure :

 

  • Name the interface
  • Status: Deployed
  • Choose type “Outbound” among the list (“Inbound”; “Outbound”).

Inbound: for Agent – SF

Outbound: for SF – Agent 

  • Target: the table name in the Oracle system where we created on Step 1
  • On the Query section: input the Salesforce SOQL statement. Here select statement from Account for those created on today.
  • Click Next to do Mappings as shown in the below figure:

  • Click button “Save” on Data Mapping grid to save the defined Mappings
  • Then click “Process” to test integrate

  • Click “Test Integrate” to test this interface setup and data integration from Salesforce Account data as shown in the table into the Oracle system on table ACCOUNT.
  • Finish completing the wizard. You will be asked as in the figure:
  • Click “Yes” to save the integration you have just created on the Integration Properties Setup page.

As a result, you will see the figure as shown below:

B. Agent – SF: JDBC Oracle Integration

Agent – Salesforce Integration:

The process is very similar to Step 2’s A section.

Click “Edit Interface” on Integration Properties Setup page as shown in the below figure:

  • Choose Integration Direction “Agent – SF” among (SF-Agent; Agent-SF)
  • Name your integration
  • Choose the appropriate adapter type. Here we use JDBC adapter and name the adapter
  • On Adapter Property information section
  • Fill in all necessary information needed to make connection and data manipulation to the Oracle system
  • Click “Test Source Connection” to test the connection to the specified Oracle instance
  • Click “Save” to save the Integration and its Adapter and Properties and to create a New Interface and fill in all necessary info as shown in the below figure

  • Name the interface
  • Status: Deployed
  • Choose type “Inbound” among the list (“Inbound”; “Outbound”).
  • Inbound: for Agent – SF
  • Outbound: for SF – Agent
  • Target: the sObject name in the Salesforce system “Account”
  • On the Query section: input the DBMS SQL statement. Here select statement from ACCOUNT on Oracle.
  • Click Next to do Mappings as shown in the figure below:

  • Click button “Save” on Data Mapping grid to save the defined Mappings
  • Then click “Next” to test integrate

  • Click “Process” to test this interface setup and data integration from Oracle ACCOUNT Data to Salesforce Account.
  • Finish completing the wizard. You will be asked as in the figure:

  • Finally, click “Save” to save the configuration onto the Integration properties file

In the figure above, noticeably:

  • Integration: the integration id of Agent – SF
  • IntegratonSF2Agent: the integration id of SF – Agent
Remark
If you want to change the integration setup (eg, change the SF instance info like password or token; or change integration either SF2Agent or Agent2SF), always change thru the Agent UI. Change it directly in the file might cause unexpected errors. For example, if you change the password in the file, it will cause an encryption/ decryption problem since the password shown in the file has been encrypted.

Step 3: Monitoring

          1-Oracle Monitoring:

  • Log in to the Oracle if not logged in and check the Account data, you will see :

         2-Salesforce Monitoring:

  • Login to the Salesforce instance
  • Go to the integration “SF2Agent Integration 122010” for Salesforce – Agent integration and “Agent2 SF Integration 122010” for Agent – Salesforce integration
  • See their Messages Board

C. MySQL Integration
