Connect to HPCC Systems Data in Aqua Data Studio

Access HPCC Systems data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for HPCC Systems integrates HPCC Systems data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to HPCC Systems data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The HPCC Systems data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, HPCC Systems.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.hpcc.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.hpcc.HPCCDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:hpcc: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties. You will find information on the required connection string options in the help documentation. A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:hpcc:URL=http://127.0.0.1:8510;User=test;password=xA123456;Version=1;Cluster=hthor;
  4. To connect, set the following connection properties: Set URL to the machine name or IP address of the server and the port the server is running on, for example, https://server:port. The User and Password are required to authenticate to the HPCC Systems cluster specified in the URL. Note that LDAP authentication is not currently supported by our ODBC driver.

    Set Version to the WsSQL Web server version. Note that if you have not already done so, you will need to install the WsSQL service on the HPCC Systems server. The WsSQL Web service is used to interact with the underlying HPCC Systems platform.

    Set Cluster to the target cluster.

Query HPCC Systems Data

You can now query the tables exposed.
