Kafka connector for Sybase and postgrase DB

Hi All,

I am new in this community. I have a requirement to read data using Kafka connector from our Sybase (legacy DB) to Postgrase (New DB).
Could you please guide me on few points?

1> Which source connector I will use (JDBC or any specific to Sybase)
2> Which sink connector I will use (JDBC or any specific to Postgres)
3> Please point to me a sample/reference example

Hi Mahesh, welcome to the community! It doesn’t look like there are any Sybase-specific source connectors, and though there is a Debezium source connector for Postgres, I don’t think there are any Postgres-specific sink connectors, so it looks like the JDBC connector will be your best bet for both.
Here’s the docs for that connector: JDBC Connector (Source and Sink) for Confluent Platform | Confluent Documentation
And here’s a couple of helpful blog posts from @rmoff:
Kafka Connect JDBC Sink - setting the key field name
Kafka Connect JDBC Sink deep-dive: Working with Primary Keys

Feel free to post back here if you run into problems, or just to let us all know how it’s going.

Thanks,
Dave

@daveklein : Thank you so much. This will help me. I will start my POC next week and get back in case any help is required.

Hi @daveklein : I have successfully started confluent Kafka 6.2.0 on the local system.
Also, I have installed Sybase ASE latest version. But when I create JDBC connector then it is in a running state but not task is created. In my connector logs, I checked it gives 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.XXX:5000/pubs2",
        "connection.user": "sa",
        "connection.password": "XXXXXXX",
        "topic.prefix": "sybase-01-",
        "mode": "bulk"
    }
}

Exception

Looks like you’ve posted this here JDBC Source connector for Sybase: com.sybase.jdbc4.jdbc.SybSQLException: ‘""’ is not a valid type name so I’ll close this thread now.
