Databricks Oracle


                  Databricks Oracle

Databricks can connect to and work with Oracle databases. Here’s how you can establish a connection and interact with Oracle data from within your Databricks environment:


  1. Obtain the Oracle JDBC Driver:
    • Download the appropriate Oracle JDBC driver (ojdbc.jar) from the Oracle website.
    • Ensure that the driver version is compatible with your Oracle database and that the Java version runs on your Databricks cluster.
  2. Install the JDBC Driver on your Cluster:
    • Navigate to the “Libraries” tab in your Databricks workspace.
    • Click “Install New” and select “Upload” as the library source.
    • Choose the “Jar” file format and upload the downloaded Oracle JDBC driver.
    • Attach the library to your desired Databricks cluster.
  3. Establish the Connection:
    • Connect to your Oracle database using the Spark DataFrame API (or Spark SQL) with the JDBC data source.
      • Provide the necessary connection details:URL: The JDBC connection URL for your Oracle database (e.g., jdbc:oracle:thin:@//your_oracle_host: port/service_name)
      • driver: The class name of the Oracle JDBC driver (oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver)
      • debatable: The name of the Oracle table (or a SQL query) you want to access
      • user: Your Oracle username
      • password: Your Oracle password

Example Code (PySpark):


df = spark. read \

    .format(“jdbc”) \

    .option(“URL”, “jdbc:oracle:thin:@//your_oracle_host:port/service_name”) \

    .option(“driver,” “oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver”) \

    .option(“debatable”, “your_table_name”) \

    .option(“user”, “your_username”) \

    .option(“password”, “your_password”) \


Important Considerations:

  • Network Connectivity: Ensure your Databricks cluster has network access to your Oracle database server. If your Oracle database is on-premises, you should set up appropriate network configurations or a VPN connection.
  • Firewall Rules: Check firewall rules to ensure the required ports are open for communication between Databricks and your Oracle database.
  • Performance Optimization: Consider partitioning large Oracle tables and using Databricks’ parallel processing capabilities to optimize performance when reading or writing data.
  • Oracle Wallet: If your Oracle database uses a wallet for authentication, you must configure your Databricks cluster accordingly.
