Manage Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

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

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

Integrate Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register 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.

    The primary method for performing basic authentication is to provide your login credentials, as follows:

    • User: Set this to your username.
    • Password: Set this to your password.

    Optionally, if you are making use of a sandbox environment, set the following:

    • UseSandbox: Set this to true if you are authenticating with a sandbox account.

    Authenticating Using Account Number and License Key

    Alternatively, you can authenticate using your account number and license key. Connect to data using the following:

    • AccountId: Set this to your Account Id. The Account Id is listed in the upper right hand corner of the admin console.
    • LicenseKey: Set this to your Avalara Avatax license key. You can generate a license key by logging into Avalara Avatax as an account adminstrator and navigating to Settings -> Reset License Key.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.avalaraavatax.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:avalaraavatax:User=MyUser;Password=MyPassword;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to data. entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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