Getting Started: Teradata jdbc Source Connector development


I’m new with Airbyte and want need to make Source and Destination connectors for Teradata. I understand that Airbyte provides templates for jdbc java sources. I read this post: How can I get started to build a custom Java source connector in airbyte? and started looking into Postgres-source code.

I wish to better understand what steps do I need to take in order to start with the source for Teradata. I don’t know what changes do I need to make for example in Postgres-source for this to take place.

Thanks in advance!


Hello there! You are receiving this message because none of your fellow community members has stepped in to respond to your topic post. (If you are a community member and you are reading this response, feel free to jump in if you have the answer!) As a result, the Community Assistance Team has been made aware of this topic and will be investigating and responding as quickly as possible.
Some important considerations that will help your to get your issue solved faster:

  • It is best to use our topic creation template; if you haven’t yet, we recommend posting a followup with the requested information. With that information the team will be able to more quickly search for similar issues with connectors and the platform and troubleshoot more quickly your specific question or problem.
  • Make sure to upload the complete log file; a common investigation roadblock is that sometimes the error for the issue happens well before the problem is surfaced to the user, and so having the tail of the log is less useful than having the whole log to scan through.
  • Be as descriptive and specific as possible; when investigating it is extremely valuable to know what steps were taken to encounter the issue, what version of connector / platform / Java / Python / docker / k8s was used, etc. The more context supplied, the quicker the investigation can start on your topic and the faster we can drive towards an answer.
  • We in the Community Assistance Team are glad you’ve made yourself part of our community, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and resolve the problems as quickly as possible. Expect to hear from a specific team member as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Hi Luis! I’d say do the quick Python source tutorial to get an overview of what goes into developing a source connector. I think that would give you a better understanding of how to do that in Java:

We do have docs on creating a Java destination:

Let me know if this helps!

Hi @natalyjazzviolin , I read the speedrun but I still don’t understand how to use the AbstractJdbcSource class to buil d my Java Source for Teradata.
How should I implement methods such as discover or read using this Abstract class?

Unfortunately our team does not have the capacity to provide one on one coaching like this. I’d encourage you to reach out in the shameless plugs channel in Slack!
