The CData JDBC Driver for Dynamics CRM supports several operations on data, including querying, deleting, modifying, and inserting.
See SELECT Statements for a syntax reference and examples.
See Data Model for information on the capabilities of the Dynamics CRM API.
See INSERT Statements for a syntax reference and examples, as well as retrieving the new records' Ids.
The primary key Id is required to update a record. See UPDATE Statements for a syntax reference and examples.
An UPSERT updates a record if it exists and inserts the record if it does not. See UPSERT Statements for a syntax reference and examples.
The primary key Id is required to delete a record. See DELETE Statements for a syntax reference and examples.
CACHE statements allow granular control over the driver's caching functionality. For a syntax reference and examples, see CACHE Statements.
For more information on the caching feature, see Caching Data.
REPLICATE statements allow high-level control over caching and incremental updates. For a syntax reference and examples, see REPLICATE Statements.
You can also incrementally update a cache automatically; see AutoCache for more information.
Use EXECUTE or EXEC statements to execute stored procedures. See EXECUTE Statements for a syntax reference and examples.
Names and Quoting
- Table and column names are considered identifier names; as such, they are restricted to the following characters: [A-Z, a-z, 0-9, _:@].
- To use a table or column name with characters not listed above, the name must be quoted using square brackets ([name]) in any SQL statement.
- Parameter names can optionally start with the @ symbol (e.g., @p1 or @CustomerName) and cannot be quoted.
- Strings must be quoted using single quotes (e.g., 'John Doe').
Transactions and Batching
Transactions are not currently supported.
Additionally, the driver does not support batching of SQL statements. To execute multiple commands, you can create multiple instances and execute each separately. Or, use Batch Processing. Dynamics 365 and on-premise instances since CRM 2013 support bulk operations. The driver abstracts the Dynamics CRM bulk API into SQL. The following sections describe the SQL you can use to execute bulk operations to Dynamics CRM.
