Azure Synapse JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Azure Synapse.

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

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

Integrate Azure Synapse Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Azure Synapse 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.

    Connecting to Azure Synapse

    In addition to providing authentication (see below), set the following properties to connect to a Azure Synapse database:

    • Server: The server running Azure. You can find this by logging into the Azure portal and navigating to Azure Synapse Analytics -> Select your database -> Overview -> Server name.
    • Database: The name of the database, as seen in the Azure portal on the Azure Synapse Analytics page.

    Authenticating to Azure Synapse

    Connect to Azure Synapse using the following properties:

    • User: The username provided for authentication with Azure.
    • Password: The password associated with the authenticating user.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.azuresynapse.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Azure Synapse data. Azure Synapse entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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