Connect to Amazon Marketplace Data in Aqua Data Studio

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

The CData JDBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace integrates Amazon Marketplace data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to Amazon Marketplace 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 Amazon Marketplace 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, Amazon Marketplace.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.amazonmarketplace.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.amazonmarketplace.AmazonMarketplaceDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:amazonmarketplace: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      To connect to the Amazon Marketplace Webservice (MWS), AWSAccessKeyId, MWSAuthToken, AWSSecretKey and SellerId are required. You can optionally set the Marketplace property. For more information on obtaining values for these properties, refer to the Help documentation.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.amazonmarketplace.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:amazonmarketplace:AWS Access Key Id=myAWSAccessKeyId;AWS Secret Key=myAWSSecretKey;MWS Auth Token=myMWSAuthToken;Seller Id=mySellerId;Marketplace=United States;

Query Amazon Marketplace Data

You can now query the tables exposed.
