Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.1 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Configure the JDBC Data View

  1. Create a JDBC data source named mysql1 for the SQL database.

    % dpconf create-jdbc-data-source -b sample_sql -B jdbc:mysql:// \
     -J file:/net/host2.example/local/mysql/lib/jdbc.jar -S com.mysql.jdbc.Driver mysql1
  2. Specify the user name and password file for the SQL database.

    % dpconf set-jdbc-data-source-prop mysql1 db-pwd-file:sqlpwd.txt db-user:root
  3. Restart the proxy server.

    % dpadm restart /local/dps
  4. Enable the data source, and allow write operations to the data source.

    % dpconf set-jdbc-data-source-prop mysql1 is-enabled:true is-read-only:false
  5. Create a JDBC data source pool named mysql1–pool.

    % dpconf create-jdbc-data-source-pool mysql1-pool
  6. Attach the JDBC data source to the data source pool.

    % dpconf attach-jdbc-data-source mysql1-pool mysql1
  7. Create a JDBC data view for the data source pool, named myjdbc1–view, with a base DN of o=sql.

    % dpconf create-jdbc-data-view mysql1-view mysql1-pool o=sql
  8. Create a JDBC table for each table in the MySQL database.

    % dpconf create-jdbc-table employee1 EMPLOYEE
    % dpconf create-jdbc-table country1 COUNTRY
    % dpconf create-jdbc-table phone1 PHONE

    The name of the table in the SQL database is case sensitive. Make sure that you use the same case that is used in the SQL database.

  9. Create a JDBC attribute for each column in each table.

    Creating a JDBC attribute maps the MySQL column to an LDAP attribute.

    % dpconf add-jdbc-attr employee1 uid ID
    % dpconf add-jdbc-attr employee1 sn SURNAME
    % dpconf add-jdbc-attr employee1 userPassword PASSWORD
    % dpconf add-jdbc-attr employee1 room ROOM
    % dpconf add-jdbc-attr phone1 tel NUMBER
    % dpconf add-jdbc-attr country1 country NAME

    It is not necessary to create JDBC attributes for the phone1 user_id and country1 id columns, because these columns are used only in the context of the MySQL database. They will not have a corresponding LDAP attribute.

  10. Create a JDBC object class for the LDAP person object class.

    In this step, the employee1 table is identified as the primary table, and the country1 and phone1 tables are identified as secondary tables. The creation of a JDBC object class also requires a DN. In this example, the DN is constructed from the uid attribute and the base DN of the data view.

    % dpconf create-jdbc-object-class mysql1-view person employee1 country1 phone1 uid
  11. Define the join rules between the primary table and the secondary tables.

    A join rule is defined on the secondary table and determines how data from that table is linked to data from the primary table.

    % dpconf set-jdbc-table-prop country1 filter-join-rule:'ID=${EMPLOYEE.COUNTRY_ID}'
    % dpconf set-jdbc-table-prop phone1 filter-join-rule:'USER_ID=${EMPLOYEE.ID}'
  12. Specify the super class for the JDBC object class.

    The super class indicates the LDAP object class from which the JDBC object class inherits attributes.

    % dpconf set-jdbc-object-class-prop mysql1-view person super-class:top
