Create a Data Access Object for Authorize.Net Data using JDBI

A brief overview of creating a SQL Object API for Authorize.Net data in JDBI.

JDBI is a SQL convenience library for Java that exposes two different style APIs, a fluent style and a SQL object style. The CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net integrates connectivity to live Authorize.Net data in Java applications. By pairing these technologies, you gain simple, programmatic access to Authorize.Net data. This article walks through building a basic Data Access Object (DAO) and the accompanying code to read Authorize.Net data.

Create a DAO for the Authorize.Net SettledBatchList Entity

The interface below declares the desired behavior for the SQL object to create a single method for each SQL statement to be implemented.

public interface MySettledBatchListDAO { //request specific data from Authorize.Net (String type is used for simplicity) @SqlQuery("SELECT TotalCharge FROM SettledBatchList WHERE IncludeStatistics = :includeStatistics") String findTotalChargeByIncludeStatistics(@Bind("includeStatistics") String includeStatistics); /* * close with no args is used to close the connection */ void close(); }

Open a Connection to Authorize.Net

Collect the necessary connection properties and construct the appropriate JDBC URL for connecting to Authorize.Net.

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.

A connection string for Authorize.Net will typically look like the following:

jdbc:authorizenet:LoginId=MyLoginId;TransactionKey=MyTransactionKey;

Use the configured JDBC URL to obtain an instance of the DAO interface. The particular method shown below will open a handle bound to the instance, so the instance needs to be closed explicitly to release the handle and the bound JDBC connection.

DBI dbi = new DBI("jdbc:authorizenet:LoginId=MyLoginId;TransactionKey=MyTransactionKey;"); MySettledBatchListDAO dao = dbi.open(MySettledBatchListDAO.class); //do stuff with the DAO dao.close();

Read Authorize.Net Data

With the connection open to Authorize.Net, simply call the previously defined method to retrieve data from the SettledBatchList entity in Authorize.Net.

//disply the result of our 'find' method String totalCharge = dao.findTotalChargeByIncludeStatistics("True"); System.out.println(totalCharge);

Since the JDBI library is able to work with JDBC connections, you can easily produce a SQL Object API for Authorize.Net by integrating with the CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net. Download a free trial and work with live Authorize.Net data in custom Java applications today.
