May 2021 Technology Improvements in Adapters by Michael Meiner


In the May 2021 release, we are making the following updates to our Database adapters and connectivity agent:

  1. MS SQL adapter: support for Azure SQL
  2. My SQL adapter: support for MySQL version 8
  3. Connectivity agent: support for JDK 11

Microsoft SQL on Azure

Many of our customers need to integrate with Microsoft Azure SQL. In this release, you can leverage the same SQL Server adapter that is available in OIC, and connect to Azure SQL. You will set up a connectivity agent, and then use the connections page to fill in the Azure SQL host and port, database name and the credentials.

Once you configure the connection, you can use this connection in an integration flow in exactly the same way as SQL Server on-premise. Note that SQL on Azure can be installed in a private network, where the ports are not open to the internet. For such a setup, the OIC connectivity agent needs to be installed on an Azure VM in the same subnet. This is so the agent will be able to reach the Azure SQL instance. If SQL on Azure is configured with open ports, then the connectivity agent can be installed anywhere (including on Oracle Cloud). We will be adding more options for security policies in an upcoming release. Read the complete article here.
