Connect to PostgreSQL Data in RazorSQL

Connect to PostgreSQL from wizards and query PostgreSQL data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for PostgreSQL enables standards-based access from third-party tools, from wizards in IDEs to data management and analysis tools. This article shows how to connect to PostgreSQL using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for PostgreSQL Data

  1. Open the RazorSQL application and, in the Connections menu, select Add Connection Profile -> Other -> JDBC.
  2. In the Connection Wizard that appears, set the following properties:
    • Driver Location: Set this property to the path to the lib subfolder in the installation directory.
    • Driver Class: Set the driver class to cdata.jdbc.postgresql.PostgreSQLDriver.
    • Username: Enter the username. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • Password: Enter the password. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • JDBC URL: Enter connection parameters. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:postgresql: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      To connect to PostgreSQL, set the Server, Port (the default port is 5432), and Database connection properties and set the User and Password you wish to use to authenticate to the server. If the Database property is not specified, the data provider connects to the user's default database.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:postgresql:User=postgres;Password=admin;Database=postgres;Server=127.0.0.1;Port=5432;
  3. To connect to PostgreSQL, set the Server, Port (the default port is 5432), and Database connection properties and set the User and Password you wish to use to authenticate to the server. If the Database property is not specified, the data provider connects to the user's default database.

Query PostgreSQL Data and Select Tables

After establishing a connection, the wizard will close and the connection will be available in the connections panel. You can then query the tables.
