Denodo Virtual DataPort is a global solution for integrating heterogeneous and distributed data sources.
Virtual DataPort the data that are relevant to the company, regardless of their origin, format and level of structure. It incorporates these data into its data system in real time or with configurable preloads and facilitates the construction of services of high strategic and functional value for both corporate and business use.
Virtual DataPort is based on a client-server architecture, where clients issue statements to the server written in VQL (Virtual Query Language), a SQL-like language used to query and define data views (see the Virtual DataPort Administration Guide and the Virtual DataPort VQL Guide).
This document introduces product users to the mechanisms available for client applications to use Denodo Virtual DataPort, making the most of its data integration facilities.
Client applications can access Virtual DataPort in several ways:
- Using the JDBC interface (Java Database Connectivity). Virtual DataPort provides a JDBC driver that client applications can use for this purpose (see section Access Through JDBC)
- Using the ODBC interface (Open Database Connectivity). Virtual DataPort provides an ODBC interface and an ODBC driver for ODBC clients (see section Access Through ODBC)
- Using an ADO.NET Data Provider (see section Access Through an ADO.NET Data Provider).
- Using the SOAP and REST Web Service interfaces:
- Access through the generic RESTful Web Service interface. This service is automatically deployed on http://localhost:9090/denodo-restfulws.
- With the Virtual DataPort administration tool, you can publish SOAP or REST Web services that publish the contents of one or more views. See more about this in the section Publication of Web services of the Administration Guide.
