If you often need to connect to a remote SAS system, you can centralize the connection information in the Repository.
To centralize the metadata information of a SAS connection in the Repository, you need to complete two major tasks:
Set up a SAS connection,
Retrieve the database schemas.
Talend Studio requires specific third-party Java libraries or database drivers (.jar files) to be installed in order to connect to sources or targets. Due to license restrictions, Talend may not be able to ship certain required libraries or drivers; in that situation, the connection wizard to be presented in the following sections displays related information to help you identify and install the libraries or drivers in question. For more information, see Talend Installation Guide.
Before carrying on the procedure below to configure your SAS connection, make sure that you retrieve your metadata from the SAS server and export it in XML format.
