Auto Cache

Automatically caches the results of SELECT queries into a cache database specified by either CacheLocation or both of CacheConnection and CacheProvider . Configured with CacheQueryResult .
Data Type

bool

Default Value

false

Remarks

When AutoCache is set, the driver automatically maintains a cache of your table's data in the database of your choice. By default, the driver incrementally updates the cache, retrieving only changes since the last SELECT query was run if the length of time since the last run has exceeded the CacheTolerance. After the cache is updated, the query is executed against the cached data. With CacheQueryResult additionally set, the driver updates the cache when you execute a SELECT query and returns the live results from the IMAP data.

Explicitly Caching SELECT Results

CacheQueryResult is a way to query IMAP in real time while maintaining a cache for offline use. Set CacheQueryResult to update the cache whenever you execute a SELECT statement. When you execute a SELECT statement with AutoCache and CacheQueryResult set, the driver executes the query to the remote data and caches the results; rows that already exist are overwritten. That is, SELECT statements are used to create and refresh the cache, not to query it. Data manipulation commands are executed to the remote data as well.

To query the cached data, set the Offline property. If you need to query the cached data in an online connection, you can append #CACHE to the table name. For example:

SELECT * FROM [[INBOX]#CACHE]

Setting the Caching Database

When AutoCache is set, the driver caches to a simple, file-based cache. You can configure its location or cache to a different database with the following properties:

See Also





Batch Size

The maximum size of each batch operation to submit.
Data Type

int

Default Value

0

Remarks

When BatchSize is set to a value greater than 0, the batch operation will split the entire batch into separate batches of size BatchSize. The split batches will then be submitted to the server individually. This is useful when the server has limitations on the size of the request that can be submitted.

Setting BatchSize to 0 will submit the entire batch as specified.





Cache Connection

The connection string for the cache database. Always used in conjunction with CacheProvider . Setting both properties will override the value set for CacheLocation for caching data.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

The cache database is determined based on the CacheDriver and CacheConnection properties. Both properies are required to use the cache database. Examples of common cache database settings can be found below. For more information on setting the caching database's driver, refer to CacheDriver.

The connection string specified in the CacheConnection property is passed directly to the underlying CacheDriver. Consult the documentation for the specific JDBC driver for more information on the available properties. Make sure to include the JDBC driver in your application's classpath.

Derby and Java DB

The driver simplifies caching to Derby, only requiring you to set the CacheLocation property to make a basic connection.

Alternatively, you can configure the connection to Derby manually using CacheProvider and CacheConnection. Below is the Derby JDBC URL syntax:

jdbc:derby:[subsubprotocol:][databaseName][;attribute=value[;attribute=value] ... ]
For example, to cache to an in-memory database, use the following:
jdbc:derby:memory

SQLite

To cache to SQLite, you can use the SQLite JDBC driver. Below is the syntax of the JDBC URL:

jdbc:sqlite:dataSource

MySQL

The installation includes the CData JDBC Driver for MySQL. Below is an example JDBC URL:

jdbc:mysql:User=root;Password=root;Server=localhost;Port=3306;Database=cache
Below are typical connection properties:

SQL Server

The JDBC URL for the Microsoft JDBC Driver for SQL Server has the following syntax:

jdbc:sqlserver://[serverName[\instance][:port]][;database=databaseName][;property=value[;property=value] ... ]
For example:
jdbc:sqlserver://localhost\sqlexpress:1433;integratedSecurity=true
Below are typical SQL Server connection properties:
Oracle

Below is the conventional JDBC URL syntax for the Oracle JDBC Thin driver:

jdbc:oracle:thin:[userId/password]@[//]host[[:port][:sid]]
For example:
jdbc:oracle:thin:scott/tiger@myhost:1521:orcl
Below are typical connection properties:
PostgreSQL

Below is the JDBC URL syntax for the official PostgreSQL JDBC driver:

jdbc:postgresql:[//[host[:port]]/]database[[?option=value][[&option=value][&option=value] ... ]]
For example, the following connection string connects to a database on the default host (localhost) and port (5432):
jdbc:postgresql:postgres
Below are typical connection properties:





Cache Driver

The database driver to be used to cache data.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

You can cache to any database for which you have a JDBC driver, including CData JDBC drivers.

The cache database is determined based on the CacheDriver and CacheConnection properties. The CacheDriver is the name of the JDBC driver class that you would like to use to cache data.

Note that you must also add the CacheDriver JAR to the classpath.

The following examples show how to cache to several major databases. Refer to CacheConnection for more information on the JDBC URL syntax and typical connection properties.

Derby and Java DB

The driver simplifies Derby configuration. Java DB is the Oracle distribution of Derby. The JAR is shipped in the JDK. You can find the JAR, derby.jar, in the db subfolder of the JDK installation. In most caching scenarios, you need to specify only the following, after adding derby.jar to the classpath.

jdbc:email:CacheLocation='c:/Temp/cachedir';Port=993;Server=imap.gmail.com;Password=password;User=user;Protocol=IMAP;SMTP Port=587;SMTP Server=smtp.gmail.com;
To customize the Derby JDBC URL, use CacheDriver and CacheConnection. For example, to cache to an in-memory database, use a JDBC URL like the following:
jdbc:email:CacheDriver=org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver;CacheConnection='jdbc:derby:memory';Port=993;Server=imap.gmail.com;Password=password;User=user;Protocol=IMAP;SMTP Port=587;SMTP Server=smtp.gmail.com;
SQLite

Below is a JDBC URL for the SQLite JDBC driver:

jdbc:email:CacheDriver=org.sqlite.JDBC;CacheConnection='jdbc:sqlite:C:/Temp/sqlite.db';Port=993;Server=imap.gmail.com;Password=password;User=user;Protocol=IMAP;SMTP Port=587;SMTP Server=smtp.gmail.com;
MySQL

Below is a JDBC URL for the included CData JDBC Driver for MySQL:

  jdbc:email:Cache Driver=cdata.jdbc.mysql.MySQLDriver;Cache Connection='jdbc:mysql:Server=localhost;Port=3306;Database=cache;User=root;Password=123456';Port=993;Server=imap.gmail.com;Password=password;User=user;Protocol=IMAP;SMTP Port=587;SMTP Server=smtp.gmail.com;
  
The CData JDBC Driver for MySQL is located in the lib subfolder of the CData JDBC Driver for Email 2017 installation directory.
SQL Server

The following JDBC URL uses the Microsoft JDBC Driver for SQL Server:

jdbc:email:Cache Driver=com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver;Cache Connection='jdbc:sqlserver://localhost\sqlexpress:7437;user=sa;password=123456;databaseName=Cache';Port=993;Server=imap.gmail.com;Password=password;User=user;Protocol=IMAP;SMTP Port=587;SMTP Server=smtp.gmail.com;
Oracle

Below is a JDBC URL for the Oracle Thin Client:

jdbc:email:Cache Driver=oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver;CacheConnection='jdbc:oracle:thin:scott/tiger@localhost:1521:orcldb';Port=993;Server=imap.gmail.com;Password=password;User=user;Protocol=IMAP;SMTP Port=587;SMTP Server=smtp.gmail.com;
PostgreSQL

The following JDBC URL uses the official PostgreSQL JDBC driver:

jdbc:email:CacheDriver=org.postgresql.Driver;CacheConnection='jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5433/postgres?user=postgres&password=admin';Port=993;Server=imap.gmail.com;Password=password;User=user;Protocol=IMAP;SMTP Port=587;SMTP Server=smtp.gmail.com;





Cache Location

Specifies the path to the cache when caching to a file.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

The CacheLocation is a simple, file-based cache. The driver uses Java DB, Oracle's distribution of the Derby database. To cache to Java DB, you will need to add the Java DB JAR to the classpath. The JAR, derby.jar, is shipped in the JDK and located in the db subfolder of the JDK installation.

CacheLocation defaults to the directory specified by the Location setting.

See Also





Cache Metadata

Whether or not to cache the table metadata to a file store.
Data Type

bool

Default Value

false

Remarks

-synch -port -rssis As you execute queries with this property set, table metadata in the IMAP catalog are cached to the file store specified by CacheLocation if set or the user's home directory otherwise. A table's metadata will be retrieved only once, when the table is queried for the first time.

When to Use CacheMetadata

The driver automatically persists metadata in memory for up to two hours when you first discover the metadata for a table or view and therefore, CacheMetadata is generally not required. CacheMetadata becomes useful when metadata operations are expensive such as when you are working with large amounts of metadata or when you have many short-lived connections.

When Not to Use CacheMetadata





Cache Query Result

With AutoCache set, caches each row read from a SELECT query's results. Without this, the provider will attempt to fully replicate the table before executing the actual query against the replication database.
Data Type

bool

Default Value

false

Remarks

When CacheQueryResult and AutoCache are set, the rows returned from a SELECT query are cached in the cache database. The driver handles caching in a streaming fashion with each row being processed into the cache database from the original result set as you read the row from the returned ResultSet object. This ensures that the live data is not queried twice. Note that any rows you do not read from the returned ResultSet will not be updated in the cache.





Connect On Open

Species whether to connect to the IMAP when the connection is opened.
Data Type

bool

Default Value

false

Remarks

When set to 'true', a connection will be made to IMAP when the connection is opened. This property enables the 'Test Connection' feature available in various database tools.

This feature acts as a NOOP command as it is used to verify a connection can be made to IMAP and nothing from this initial connection is maintained.

Setting this property to 'false' may provide performance improvements (depending upon the number of times a connection is opened).





Email Service

Optimizes the IMAP connection for the service you are working with.
Data Type

string

Default Value

"Other"

Remarks

Possible values include AOL, Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, and Other.





Firewall Password

Remarks

This property is passed to the proxy specified by FirewallServer and FirewallPort, following the authentication method specified by FirewallType.





Firewall Port

The TCP port for a proxy-based firewall.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

This specifies the TCP port for a proxy allowing traversal of a firewall. Use FirewallServer to specify the name or IP address. Specify the protocol with FirewallType.





Firewall Server

The name or IP address of a proxy-based firewall.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property specifies the IP address, DNS name, or host name of a proxy allowing traversal of a firewall. The protocol is specified by FirewallType: Use FirewallServer with this property to connect through SOCKS or do tunneling. Use ProxyServer to connect to an HTTP proxy.

Note that the driver uses the system proxy by default. To use a different proxy, set ProxyAutoDetect to false.





Firewall Type

The protocol used by a proxy-based firewall.
Data Type

string

Default Value

"NONE"

Remarks

This property specifies the protocol that the driver will use to tunnel traffic through the FirewallServer proxy. Note that by default the driver connects to the system proxy; to disable this behavior and connect to one of the following proxy types, set ProxyAutoDetect to false.

Type Default Port Description
TUNNEL 80 When this is set, the driver opens a connection to IMAP and traffic flows back and forth through the proxy.
SOCKS4 1080 When this is set, the driver sends data through the SOCKS 4 proxy specified by FirewallServer and FirewallPort and passes the FirewallUser value to the proxy, which determines if the connection request should be granted.
SOCKS5 1080 When this is set, the driver sends data through the SOCKS 5 proxy specified by FirewallServer and FirewallPort. If your proxy requires authentication, set FirewallUser and FirewallPassword to credentials the proxy recognizes.

To connect to HTTP proxies, use ProxyServer and ProxyPort. To authenticate to HTTP proxies, use ProxyAuthScheme, ProxyUser, and ProxyPassword.





Firewall User

The user name to use to authenticate with a proxy-based firewall.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

The FirewallUser and FirewallPassword properties are used to authenticate against the proxy specified in FirewallServer and FirewallPort, following the authentication method specified in FirewallType.

Location

A path to the directory that contains the schema files defining tables, views, and stored procedures.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

The path to a directory which contains the schema files for the driver (.rsd files for tables and views, .rsb files for stored procedures). The Location property is only needed if you would like to customize definitions (e.g., change a column name, ignore a column, etc.) or extend the data model with new tables, views, or stored procedures.

The schema files are deployed alongside the driver assemblies. You must also ensure that Location points to the folder that contains the schema files. The folder location can be a relative path from the location of the executable.

Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

A string specifying the maximum size in bytes for a log file (ex: 10MB). When the limit is hit, a new log is created in the same folder with the date and time appended to the end. There is no limit by default. Values lower than 100kB will use 100kB as the value instead.





Offline

Use offline mode to get the data from the cache instead of the live source.
Data Type

bool

Default Value

false

Remarks

When Offline is set to TRUE, all queries execute against the cache as opposed to the live data source. In this mode, certain queries like INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, and CACHE are not allowed.





Other

The other parameters necessary to connect to a data source, such as username and password, when applicable.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

The Other property is a semicolon-separated list of name-value pairs used in connection parameters specific to a data source.

Caching Configuration

CachePartial=TrueCaches only a subset of columns, which you can specify in your query.
QueryPassthrough=TruePasses the specified query to the cache database instead of using the SQL parser of the driver.

Port

The port of the mail server. The default value is 143 for IMAP and 110 for POP.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

A valid port number (a value between 1 and 65535) is required for the connection to take place. The property must be set before a connection is attempted and cannot be changed once a connection is established.





Protocol

The type of email server to connect to.
Data Type

string

Default Value

"IMAP"

Remarks

Possible values include POP and IMAP. The default value of this field is IMAP.





Proxy Auth Scheme

The authentication type to use to authenticate to the ProxyServer proxy.
Data Type

string

Default Value

"BASIC"

Remarks

This value specifies the authentication type to use to authenticate to the HTTP proxy specified by ProxyServer and ProxyPort.

Note that the driver will use the system proxy settings by default, without further configuration needed; if you want to connect to another proxy, you will need to set ProxyAutoDetect to false, in addition to ProxyServer and ProxyPort. To authenticate, set ProxyAuthScheme and set ProxyUser and ProxyPassword, if needed.

The authentication type can be one of the following:

If you need to use another authentication type, such as SOCKS 5 authentication, see FirewallType.





Proxy Auto Detect

This indicates whether to use the system proxy settings or not. Set ProxyAutoDetect to FALSE to use custom proxy settings. This takes precedence over other proxy settings.
Data Type

bool

Default Value

true

Remarks

By default, the driver uses the system HTTP proxy. Set this to false if you want to connect to another proxy.

To connect to an HTTP proxy, see ProxyServer.

For other proxies, such as SOCKS or tunneling, see FirewallType.





Proxy Exceptions

A semicolon separated list of hosts or IPs that will be exempt from connecting through the ProxyServer .
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

The ProxyServer will be used for all addresses, except for addresses defined in this property. Use semicolons to separate entries.

Note that the driver will use the system proxy settings by default, without further configuration needed; if you want to explicitly configure proxy exceptions for this connection, you will need to set ProxyAutoDetect to false, and configure ProxyServer and ProxyPort. To authenticate, set ProxyAuthScheme and set ProxyUser and ProxyPassword, if needed.





Proxy Password

A password to be used to authenticate to the ProxyServer proxy.
Data Type

string

Default Value

Remarks

This property determines when to use SSL for the connection to an HTTP proxy specified by ProxyServer. This value can be AUTO, ALWAYS, NEVER, or TUNNEL. The applicable values are the following:

AUTODefault setting. If the URL is an HTTPS URL, the driver will use the TUNNEL option. If the URL is an HTTP URL, the component will use the NEVER option.
ALWAYSThe connection is always SSL enabled.
NEVERThe connection is not SSL enabled.
TUNNELThe connection is through a tunneling proxy: The proxy server opens a connection to the remote host and traffic flows back and forth through the proxy.





Proxy User

A user name to be used to authenticate to the ProxyServer proxy.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

The ProxyUser and ProxyPassword options are used to connect and authenticate against the HTTP proxy specified in ProxyServer.

You can select one of the available authentication types in ProxyAuthScheme. If you are using HTTP authentication, set this to the username of a user recognized by the HTTP proxy. If you are using Windows or Kerberos authentication, set this property to a username in one of the following formats:

user@domain
domain\user





Pseudo Columns

Indicates whether or not to include pseudo columns as columns to the table.
Data Type

string

Remarks

The RTK property may be used to license a build. Please see the included licensing file to see how to set this property. The runtime key is only available if you purchased an OEM license.





Server

The name or address of the mail server.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property specifies the IP address or the domain name of the mail server. It must be set before a connection is attempted and cannot be changed once a connection is in progress.

If this property is set to a domain name, a DNS request is initiated.

If the connection is configured to use a SOCKS firewall, the value assigned to this property may be preceded with a "*". If this is the case, the host name is passed to the firewall unresolved and the firewall performs the DNS resolution.





SMTP Port

The server port for SMTP (default 25).
Data Type

string

Default Value

"25"

Remarks

A valid port number (a value between 1 and 65535) is required for the connection to take place. The property must be set before a connection is attempted and cannot be changed once a connection is established.





SMTP Server

The name or address of the mail server (SMTP server).
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

This property specifies the IP address or domain name of the mail server. It must be set before a connection is attempted and cannot be changed once a connection is in progress.

If this property is set to a domain name, a DNS request is initiated.

If the connection is configured to use a SOCKS firewall, the value assigned to this property may be preceded with a "*". If this is the case, the host name is passed to the firewall unresolved and the firewall performs the DNS resolution.





SSL Server Cert

The certificate to be accepted from the server when connecting using TLS/SSL.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

If using a TLS/SSL connection, this property can be used to specify the TLS/SSL certificate to be accepted from the server. Any other certificate that is not trusted by the machine will be rejected.

This property can take the forms:

Description Example
A full PEM Certificate (example shortened for brevity) -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- MIIChTCCAe4CAQAwDQYJKoZIhv......Qw== -----END CERTIFICATE-----
A path to a local file containing the certificate C:\cert.cer
The public key (example shortened for brevity) -----BEGIN RSA PUBLIC KEY----- MIGfMA0GCSq......AQAB -----END RSA PUBLIC KEY-----
The MD5 Thumbprint (hex values can also be either space or colon separated) ecadbdda5a1529c58a1e9e09828d70e4
The SHA1 Thumbprint (hex values can also be either space or colon separated) 34a929226ae0819f2ec14b4a3d904f801cbb150d

If not specified, any certificate trusted by the machine will be accepted. Use '*' to signify to accept all certificates (not recommended for security concerns).





Support Enhanced SQL

Enhances SQL functionality beyond what can be supported through the API directly, by enabling in-memory client-side processing.
Data Type

bool

Default Value

true

Remarks

When SupportEnhancedSQL is set to true, the driver offloads as much of the SELECT statement processing as possible to IMAP and then processes the rest of the query in memory. In this way the driver can execute unsupported predicates, joins, and aggregation.

When SupportEnhancedSQL is set to false, the driver limits SQL execution to what is supported by the IMAP API.

Execution of Predicates

The driver determines which of the clauses are supported by the data source and then pushes them to the source to get the smallest superset of rows that would satisfy the query. It then filters the rest of the rows locally. The filter operation is streamed, which enables the driver to filter effectively for even very large datasets.

Execution of Joins

The driver uses various techniques to join in memory. The driver trades off memory utilization against the requirement of reading the same table more than once.

Execution of Aggregates

The driver retrieves all rows necessary to process the aggregation in memory.





Tables

Restrict the tables reported to a subset of the available tables. For example: Tables=TableA,TableB,TableC.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

Listing the tables from some databases can be expensive. Providing a list of tables in the connection string improves the performance of the driver.

This property can also be used as an alternative to automatically listing views if you already know which ones you want to work with and there would otherwise be too many to work with.

Specify the tables you want in a comma-separated list. For example: Tables=TableA,TableB,TableC





Timeout

The value in seconds until the timeout error is thrown, canceling the operation.
Data Type

string

Default Value

"60"

Remarks

If the Timeout property is set to 0, operations do not time out: They run until they complete successfully or encounter an error condition.

If Timeout expires and the operation is not yet complete, the driver throws an exception.





UID Mode

If true, permanent message Ids are used instead of the default temporary Ids.
Data Type

bool

Default Value

false

Remarks

The default value for UIDMode is false.





Use Connection Pooling

Enables connection pooling.
Data Type

bool

Default Value

false

Remarks

Enables connection pooling. The default is false. See Connection Pooling for information on using connection pools.





User

The user of the Email account used to authenticate.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

Together with Password, this field is used to authenticate to the email servers.





Verbosity

The verbosity level that determines the amount of detail included in the log file.
Data Type

string

Default Value

"1"

Remarks

The verbosity level determines the amount of detail that the driver reports to the Logfile. Verbosity levels from 1 to 5 are supported. These are described below:

1Setting Verbosity to 1 will log the query, the number of rows returned by it, the start of execution and the time taken, and any errors.
2Setting Verbosity to 2 will log everything included in Verbosity 1, cache queries, and additional information about the request, if applicable, such as HTTP headers.
3Setting Verbosity to 3 will additionally log the body of the request and the response.
4Setting Verbosity to 4 will additionally log transport-level communication with the data source. This includes SSL negotiation.
5Setting Verbosity to 5 will additionally log communication with the data source and additional details that may be helpful in troubleshooting problems. This includes interface commands.

The Verbosity should not be set to greater than 1 for normal operation. Substantial amounts of data can be logged at higher verbosities, which can delay execution times.





Views

Restrict the views reported to a subset of the available tables. For example: Views=ViewsA,ViewsB,ViewsC.
Data Type

string

Default Value

""

Remarks

Listing the views from some databases can be expensive. Providing a list of views in the connection string improves the performance of the driver.

This property can also be used as an alternative to automatically listing views if you already know which ones you want to work with and there would otherwise be too many to work with.

Specify the views you want in a comma-separated list. For example: For example: Views=ViewsA,ViewsB,ViewsC
