For more information regarding how the Debezium Oracle Source connector works as well as its configuration and properties, see the Debezium Connector for Oracle in the Debezium documentation.
- Download the Oracle JDBC driver.The JDBC driver can be downloaded from Maven Central. Cloudera recommends that you use version 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206, or 220.127.116.11.
- Copy and rename the driver to the location specified in the JDBC Driver Jars Path For Debezium Kafka property.
- The default location is
/var/lib/kafka_connect_jdbc. The JDBC driver must be renamed to
oracle-connector-java.jar. For example:
cp ./ojdbc8-[***VERSION***].jar /var/lib/kafka_connect_jdbc/oracle-connector-java.jar
- Set correct file permissions. For example:
chmod 644 /var/lib/kafka_connect_jdbc/oracle-connector-java.jar
