Tools for Provisioning Database-Resident Information

Sybase Data Federation database connectors, database operations, and SQL views make database data accessible to users and applications.

To make relational data accessible to Data Federation, you create an entry in the data catalog that represents a connection to a database. This kind of catalog entry is called a database connector. A database connector encapsulates information such as the JDBC driver, connect string, and username and password that Data Federation will use to connect to the database, as well as other useful information such as how to contact the appropriate database administrator.

Once you establish a connection to a database, you can make data from that database available to Data Federation in the following ways:

Data Federation database connectors, SQL views, and database operations are typically set up by database administrators. You must be a member of the DatabaseAdministrators group to perform these set-up tasks.
