ADO.NET Provider for SAP ByDesign

Build 21.0.7930

Connecting from Code

The CData ADO.NET Provider for SAP ByDesign implements a standard DbConnection object in SAPByDesignConnection. You can also use the SAPByDesignConnectionStringBuilder to programmatically build, parse, and rebuild connection strings.

Creating Connection Objects

See Establishing a Connection for guides to defining the connection string and authenticating. Below is a typical invocation to create SAPByDesignConnection objects.

C#

using (SAPByDesignConnection connection =   
  new SAPByDesignConnection("URL=https://my999999.sapbydesign.com;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;"))  
{  
  connection.Open();  
}

VB.NET

Using connection As New SAPByDesignConnection("URL=https://my999999.sapbydesign.com;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;")
  connection.Open
End Using

Using SAPByDesignConnectionStringBuilder

The following code example shows how to use an ADO.NET connection string builder to parse a connection string.

C#

SAPByDesignConnectionStringBuilder builder =
  new SAPByDesignConnectionStringBuilder("URL=https://my999999.sapbydesign.com;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;");
  //Pass the connection string builder an existing connection string, and you can get and set any of the elements as strongly typed properties.
  builder.ConnectionString = "URL=https://my999999.sapbydesign.com;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;";
  //Now that the connection string has been parsed,
  // you can work with individual items:
  builder.MyString = "new property";
  builder.MyBoolean = true;

  // You can refer to connection keys using strings, 
  // as well. 
  builder["Logfile"] = "test.log";
  builder["Verbosity"] = 5;

VB.NET

Dim builder As SAPByDesignConnectionStringBuilder = New SAPByDesignConnectionStringBuilder("URL=https://my999999.sapbydesign.com;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;")
'Pass the connection string builder an existing connection string, and you can get and set any of the elements using strongly typed properties.
builder.ConnectionString = URL=https://my999999.sapbydesign.com;User=username;Password=password;CustomService=servicename;"
'Now that the connection string has been parsed,
' you can work with individual items:
builder.MyString = "new property"
builder.MyBoolean = True
  
' You can refer to connection keys using strings, 
' as well. 
builder("Logfile") = "test.log"
builder("Verbosity") = 5
