Use the CData JDBC Driver to connect to Acumatica as an External Source in Dremio.

The CData JDBC Driver for Acumatica implements JDBC Standards and allows various applications, including Dremio, to work with live Acumatica data. Dremio is a data lakehouse platform designed to empower self-service, interactive analytics on the data lake. With the CData JDBC Driver, you can include live Acumatica data as a part of your enterprise data lake. This article describes how to connect to Acumatica data from Dremio as an External Source.

The CData JDBC Driver enables high-speed access to live Acumatica data in Dremio. Once you install the driver, authenticate with Acumatica and gain immediate access to Acumatica data within your data lake. By surfacing Acumatica data using native data types and handling complex filters, aggregations, & other operations automatically, the CData JDBC Driver grants seamless access to Acumatica data.

Build the ARP Connector

To use the CData JDBC Driver in Dremio, you need to build an Advanced Relation Pushdown (ARP) Connector. You can view the source code for the Connector on GitHub or download the ZIP file ( directly. Once you copy or extract the files, run the following command from the root directory of the connector (the directory containing the pom.xml file) to build the connector.

mvn clean install

Once the JAR file for the connector is built (in the target directory), you are ready to copy the ARP connector and JDBC Driver to your Dremio instance.

Installing the Connector and JDBC Driver

Install the ARP Connector to %DREMIO_HOME%/jars/ and the JDBC Driver for Acumatica to %DREMIO_HOME%/jars/3rdparty. You can use commands similar to the following:

ARP Connector

docker cp PATH\TO\dremio-acumatica-plugin-20.0.0.jar dremio_image_name:/opt/dremio/jars/

JDBC Driver for Acumatica

docker cp PATH\TO\cdata.jdbc.acumatica.jar dremio_image_name:/opt/dremio/jars/3rdparty/

Connecting to Acumatica

Acumatica will now appear as an External Source option in Dremio. The ARP Connector built uses a JDBC URL to connect to Acumatica data. The JDBC Driver has a built-in connection string designer that you can use (see below).

Built-in Connection String Designer

For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Acumatica JDBC Driver. Double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command line.

java -jar cdata.jdbc.acumatica.jar

Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

Set the following connection properties to connect to Acumatica:

  • User: Set this to your username.
  • Password: Set this to your password.
  • Company: Set this to your company.
  • Url: Set this to your Acumatica URL, in the format http://{Acumatica ERP instance URL}/entity/{Endpoint name}/{Endpoint version}/.
    For example:

See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.
