Re: How to call a SAS stored process from a jdbc sql statement?

Actually I think it's possible but perhaps not straight forward. This link tells that you can refer output data to a Java API:
http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/stpug/62758/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n10xnc6v54swuon15omr...
But what is your application? What does the stored process do? Generally they output reports, not data.
Data never sleeps

Re: How to call a SAS stored process from a jdbc sql statement?

Here is my use case:

 

From Pega BPM 7.x I only have ability to talk SQL using SAS JDBC. There is a program in SAS that is needed for my business process.

 

1. Load data into a SAS dataset (Read documentation, so assumed this will work http://documentation.sas.com/?docsetId=jdbcref&docsetTarget=p1pbz82pw98h7rn14cn3o0dhfo78.htm&docsetV...)

This is done using standard INSERT/UPDATE SQL statements

 

2. Retrieve data from a SAS dataset (Tested, works as expected)

This is done using standard SELECT SQL statements 

 

3. Once data is loaded in the SAS dataset, I need to tell SAS to invoke a program to compute. (I don't know how to do this without having the ability to issue a CALL statement from within JDBC/SQL).

 

Please provide some ideas on how to accomplish invoking of a SAS stored process from outside of SAS.
