SQLService

This RDMLX form provides an example of using the SQLService. The form allows you to Connect to a database with a JDBC driver, then to Execute a Query against this database. To view the data the user will run a READ command to download the data from the server and display it in a list view.

Note that in this example connection is to an IBM i database called JSMJDBC (since this is an IBM i example, the database name is a library name). The driver name used in the CONNECT command corresponds to the driver name and path defined in the SQLService properties file. The file being accessed is called TBLNAME and it consists of the fields ID, NAME, AGE, SALARY, DEPT, and GRADE.

To run this example you will need to do the following:

a.  Ensure that you have the JDBC driver for the database installed into the jar directory of your LANSA Integrator instance. Also ensure that the SQLServices.properties file contains the details of this JDBC driver and the database that you are connecting to.

b.  Define two fields in the LANSA Repository:

c.  Set the #JSMSRV field to the correct JSM server (and port) value.

This code example uses the following steps:

1.  Define the JSMCOMMAND related fields.

2.  Define the fields that will be used to map the table fields to the columns in the results list. The fields defined here should match the length and type of the fields defined in the table being queried.

3.  Define the 2 fields required for the list that is used to hold the field column mappings.

4.  Define the list that will hold the column mappings. This should be a two column list. -  the first column in this list will hold the column name and the second field will hold the field name.

5.  Define two working lists using the fields defined in the step 2. These lists will be populated by the READ command from the result list that the query generates. In this example, 2 lists are created to demonstrate how you can keep going back to the result list to access different columns as and when required. Two browselists are defined that are the same shape as these working lists, and these will be used to display the results on a screen.

6.  Set up the JSM server settings.

7.  Connect to the JSM system then the SQLService.

8.  The JSMX_OPEN Built In Function is used to connect this JSMX client to the Java Services Manager, and to start a thread for the service.

9.  The Service_Load(SQLService) command loads and initializes the service.

10. Connect to the JDBC driver.

11. Define the column field mappings. This is done by setting #FIELD to the appropriate column and the #1. COLUMN to the appropriate field name (from the table). Each mapping will be added as a new entry to the #MAPLST working list, and then a SET PARAMETER(*MAP) command will be issued. Notice that a SERVICE_LIST is passed as part of this command - the fields defined here are those used in the mapping list. The mapping list must also be specified in the TO_GET portion of the JSM command.

12. Disconnect from the JDBC driver then the JSM system.

13. When the form is closed, disconnect from the service, unload the temporary directory and close the service.
