Using Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) for Loading to Oracle Cloud’s Human Capital Management (HCM)

The A-Team is on a roll…

To load data into Oracle Cloud’s Human Capital Management (HCM) with Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) – check out the following blog:

Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) for HCM-Cloud: a Knowledge Module to Generate HCM Import Files

HCM is unique in that it uses a dedicated file format that contains both metadata and data. As far as the data is concerned, the complete hierarchy of parent and children records must be respected for the file content to be valid. This article explores a new Integration Knowledge Module (KM). This KM allows us to leverage ODI to prepare the data and generate the import file. Then, traditional Web Services connections can be leveraged to load into HCM.

How to load data from Excel using ODI 12.2.1 and Progress DataDirect SequeLink

Author: Octavio Oliveira

Background

There is often a need to read data from Excel spreadsheets and integrate it with different target technologies in Data Integration projects. The challenge is that MS Excel only supports ODBC connectivity whereas Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) and many other tools only support JDBC connectivity natively. This is where the Sun JDBC-ODBC Bridge packaged with Sun Java Development Kit (JDK) proved very useful to make the bridge between ODBC and JDBCS. However, starting with JDK 1.8 (required for ODI 12.2.1) the Sun JDBC-ODBC Bridge has been deprecated.

Luckily there are many third-party JDBC-ODBC bridges out there that can be used with ODI. In this blog post we will be using a solution provided by Progress DataDirect named SequeLink (https://www.progress.com/connectors/sequelink).
