Manage Authorize.Net Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for Authorize.Net.

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

Integrate Authorize.Net Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Authorize.Net 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.

    You can obtain the necessary connection properties on the Security Settings -> General Settings page after logging into your Merchant Account.

    • UseSandbox: The Authorize.Net API to be used to process transactions. If you are using a production account, this property can be left blank. If you are using a developer test account, set this to 'TRUE'.
    • LoginID: The API login Id associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions. Note that this value is not the same as the login Id that you use to log in to the Merchant Interface.
    • TransactionKey: The transaction key associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:authorizenet:LoginId=MyLoginId;TransactionKey=MyTransactionKey;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Authorize.Net data. Authorize.Net entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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