Manage Amazon Marketplace Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for Amazon Marketplace.

The CData JDBC Driver for Amazon Marketplace seamlessly integrates Amazon Marketplace data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Amazon Marketplace data as a database. This article shows how to create a JDBC source for Amazon Marketplace in DBArtisan. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Amazon Marketplace Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Amazon Marketplace data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    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.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:amazonmarketplace:AWS Access Key Id=myAWSAccessKeyId;AWS Secret Key=myAWSSecretKey;MWS Auth Token=myMWSAuthToken;Seller Id=mySellerId;Marketplace=United States;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Amazon Marketplace data. Amazon Marketplace entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Amazon Marketplace data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Amazon Marketplace API.
