Connect to Authorize.Net Data in RazorSQL

Connect to Authorize.Net from wizards and query Authorize.Net data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Authorize.Net enables standards-based access from third-party tools, from wizards in IDEs to data management and analysis tools. This article shows how to connect to Authorize.Net using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Authorize.Net Data

  1. Open the RazorSQL application and, in the Connections menu, select Add Connection Profile -> Other -> JDBC.
  2. In the Connection Wizard that appears, set the following properties:
    • Driver Location: Set this property to the path to the lib subfolder in the installation directory.
    • Driver Class: Set the driver class to cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.AuthorizeNetDriver.
    • Username: Enter the username. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • Password: Enter the password. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • JDBC URL: Enter connection parameters. The JDBC URL begins with jdbc:authorizenet: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      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 typical JDBC URL is the following:

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

Query Authorize.Net Data and Select Tables

After establishing a connection, the wizard will close and the connection will be available in the connections panel. You can then query the tables.
