CData BizTalk Adapter for Avro
The CData BizTalk Adapter for Avro enables you to access Avro data as BizTalk Messages. You can work with Avro data from BizTalk tools such as Send Ports, Receive Locations, Orchestrations, and Pipelines.
The adapter wraps the complexity of accessing Avro data in a standard BizTalk adapter similar to the BizTalk Adapter for SQL Server. The adapter abstracts the underlying data source into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to retrieve data.
The CData BizTalk Adapter for Avro hides the complexity of accessing data and provides additional powerful security features, smart caching, batching, socket management, and more.
- Access real-time Avro data in BizTalk.
- Execute updategrams, stored procedures, and SQL commands.
- Supports metadata discovery and schema generation for Avro entities.
See Getting Started to install the adapter and connect to Avro in BizTalk.
Advanced Features details additional features supported by the adapter, such as defining user defined views, ssl configuration, remoting, caching, firewall/proxy settings, and advanced logging.
Using the Adapter
See Generating Schemas for example schemas and the corresponding XML instances for executing updategrams, SQL commands, and stored procedures from various BizTalk ports. Bulk updategrams take advantage of the Avro bulk APIs to execute simultaneous updates.
You can also use the Add Adapter Metadata wizard in Visual Studio to generate schemas. See the CData KB for a guide.
See SQL Compliance for a syntax reference and code examples outlining the supported SQL.
See Data Model to find more information on how the adapter models the Avro APIs as tables, views, and stored procedures. This section also provides more detailed information on querying specific Avro entities.
See the Avro Adapter section to configure Receiver and Transmitter properties for receive locations and send ports.
See the Connection section for the connection properties used to connect to Avro.
