Connecting Netezza With Java and Python - Full Working Example

This tutorial and working example code will show you how to connect your Java or Python code samples to the Netezza database.

The new Gartner Critical Capabilities report explains how APIs and microservices enable digital leaders to deliver better B2B, open banking and mobile projects.

Before you start connecting, you must make sure you can access the Netezza database and table from the machine where you are trying to run Java and/or Python samples.

Connecting to Netezza Server From Python Sample

Check out my Ipython Jupyter Notebook with Python Sample.

Step 1: Importing Python jaydebeapi library:

import jaydebeapi

Step 2: Setting Database connection settings:

dsn_database = "avkash"            
dsn_hostname = "172.16.181.131" 
dsn_port = "5480"                
dsn_uid = "admin"        
dsn_pwd = "password"      
jdbc_driver_name = "org.netezza.Driver"
jdbc_driver_loc = "/Users/avkashchauhan/learn/customers/netezza/nzjdbc3.jar"
###jdbc:netezza://" + server + "/" + dbName ;
connection_string='jdbc:netezza://'+dsn_hostname+':'+dsn_port+'/'+dsn_database
url = '{0}:user={1};password={2}'.format(connection_string, dsn_uid, dsn_pwd)
print("URL: " + url)
print("Connection String: " + connection_string)

Step 3: Creating Database Connection:

conn = jaydebeapi.connect("org.netezza.Driver", connection_string, {'user': dsn_uid, 'password': dsn_pwd},
                         jars = "/Users/avkashchauhan/learn/customers/netezza/nzjdbc3.jar")
curs = conn.cursor()

Step 4: Processing SQL Query:

curs.execute("select * from allusers")
result = curs.fetchall()
print("Total records: " + str(len(result)))
print(result[0])

Step 5: Printing all records:

for i in range(len(result)):
    print(result[i])

Step 6: Closing all connections:

curs.close()
conn.close()

Connecting Netezza Server With Java Code Sample

Step 1: Have the Netezza driver as nzjdbc3.jar in a folder.

Step 2: Create netezzaJdbcMain.java as below in the same folder where nzjdbc3.jar is placed.

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.sql.Statement;
public class netezzaJdbcMain {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        String server = "x.x.x.x";
        String port = "5480";
        String dbName = "_db_name_";
        String url = "jdbc:netezza://" + server + "/" + dbName ;
        String user = "admin";
        String pwd = "password";
        String schema = "db_schema";
        Connection conn = null;
        Statement st = null;
        ResultSet rs = null;
        try {
            Class.forName("org.netezza.Driver");
            System.out.println(" Connecting ... ");
            conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url, user, pwd);
            System.out.println(" Connected "+conn);

            String sql = "select * from allusers";
            st = conn.createStatement();
            rs = st.executeQuery(sql);

            System.out.println("Printing result...");
            int i = 0;
            while (rs.next()) {
                String userName = rs.getString("name");
                int year = rs.getInt("age");
                System.out.println("User: " + userName +
                        ", age is: " + year);
                i++;
            }
            if (i==0){
                System.out.println(" No data found");
            }
        } catch (Exception e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        } finally {
            try {
                if( rs != null) 
                    rs.close();
                if( st!= null)
                    st.close();
                if( conn != null)
                    conn.close();
            } catch (SQLException e1) {
                    e1.printStackTrace();
                }
        }
    }
}

Step 3: Compile the code as below:

$ javac -cp nzjdbc3.jar -J-Xmx2g -J-XX:MaxPermSize=128m netezzaJdbcMin.java                                                                                                                                
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=128m; support was removed in 8.0

Note: You should see your main class is compiled without any problem.

Step 4: Run the compiled class as below:

$ java -cp .:nzjdbc3.jar netezzaJdbcMain

 Connecting ...
 Connected org.netezza.sql.NzConnection@3feba861
Printing result...
User: John                , age is: 30
User: Jason               , age is: 26
User: Jim                 , age is: 20
User: Kyle                , age is: 21
User: Kim                 , age is: 27

Note: You will see results like above.

That's it, enjoy!
