JDBC Source connector for Sybase: com.sybase.jdbc4.jdbc.SybSQLException: ‘""’ is not a valid type name

Hi All,

I am working in a small-scale organization and POC to fetch data from Sybase ASE DB to Confluent Kafka. I am using the JDBC source connector with added “jconn4.jar” for dependency. Also, I have installed Sybase ASE latest version. When I create a JDBC connector then it is in a running state but not task is not created.
In connector logs, I checked it gave the below exception.

JSON Config:

{

"name": "jdbc_source_sybase_01",

"config": {

"connector.class": "io.confluent.connect.jdbc.JdbcSourceConnector",

"connection.url": "jdbc:sybase:Tds:XXX.XXX.XXX.:5000/pubs2",

"connection.user": "sa",

"connection.password": "XXXXXXX",

"topic.prefix": "sybase-01-",

"mode": "bulk"

}

}

Exception

ERROR Error while trying to get updated table list, ignoring and waiting for next table poll interval (io.confluent.connect.jdbc.source.TableMonitorThread:144)

Thanks,

@senthilkumara : Finally I have solved this error. Mistake I was doing in JDBC URL
we do not have add external Jcon jar by default jdbc connector comes with jtds jar using this we can connect Sybase db.

This is my working config

{
“name”: “my_connector_name”,
“config”: {
“connector.class”: “io.confluent.connect.jdbc.JdbcSourceConnector”,
“connection.url”: “jdbc:jtds:sybase://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:4000/my_schema”,
“connection.user”: “myusername”,
“connection.password”: “mypassword”,
“topic.prefix”: “test_query_mode”,
“poll.interval.ms”: “30000”,
“mode”: “timestamp+incrementing”,
“timestamp.column.name” : “modifiedDate”,
“incrementing.column.name” : “id”,
“query”: “select query_mode_table.* from (SELECT id, name, value, modifiedDate FROM query_mode WHERE name = ‘AAA’) query_mode_table”,
“catalog.pattern”: “my_schema”
}
}

Feel free to ask me any doubt regarding this :slight_smile:
