CData Python Connector for DB2

Build 20.0.7745

From Petl

The provider can be used to create ETL applications and pipelines for CSV data in Python using Petl.

Install Required Modules

Install the Petl modules using the pip utility.

pip install petl


Import the modules, including the CData Python Connector for DB2. You can then use the provider's connect function to create a connection using a valid DB2 connection string. A SQLAlchemy engine may also be used instead of a direct connection.

import petl as etl
import cdata.DB2 as mod
cnxn = mod.connect("Server=;Port=50000;User=admin;Password=admin;Database=test")

Extract, Transform, and Load the DB2 Data

Create a SQL query string and store the query results in a DataFrame.

sql = "SELECT	Id, Author FROM Books "
table1 = etl.fromdb(cnxn,sql)

Loading Data

With the query results stored in a DataFrame, you can load your data into any supported Petl destination. The following example loads the data into a CSV file.


Modifying Data

Insert new rows into DB2 tables using Petl's appenddb function.

table1 = [['Id','Author'],['Jon Doe','John']]
