Connect to xBase Data in RazorSQL

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

The CData JDBC Driver for xBase 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 xBase using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for xBase 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.xbase.xBaseDriver.
    • 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:xbase: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      The DataSource property must be set to the name of the folder that contains the .dbf files. Specify the IncludeFiles property to work with xBase table files having extensions that differ from .dbf. Specify multiple extensions in a comma-separated list.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:xbase:DataSource=MyDBFFilesFolder;
  3. The DataSource property must be set to the name of the folder that contains the .dbf files. Specify the IncludeFiles property to work with xBase table files having extensions that differ from .dbf. Specify multiple extensions in a comma-separated list.

Query xBase 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.
