This is a questions comming from a current Splunk customer on DBConnect.
They have an in house component developed on .NET and .Java to access their internal databases. This component reads a DB connection string with a token field. After that the same component translates this token into a DB password in order to establish a connection.
DBConnect uses a Java bridge written on JDBC. The customer is wondering if there is any way to run their component before the java bridge and the read the connection string to connect to the database.
How could this be done?
Any insights or help here greatly apreaciated.
It depends entirely in the details of how their component is actually built. For example, if they had implemented their component as a JDBC driver (perhaps simply as a wrapper around the standard JDBC driver), then Splunk DBConnect could simply be configured to use that JDBC driver in place of a standard one.
It would be helpful if we knew more exactly how this component actually interfaced with other systems.
