ODBC Connectivity from Java Icon JDBC-ODBC Bridge Driver

The JDBC-ODBC Bridge provides JDBC access from any Java App to ODBC data sources on Windows, Linux and Mac. Whether your organization uses Java-based tools for reporting and analytics, or builds custom Java solutions, the CData JDBC-ODBC Bridge provides an easy way to connect with any ODBC data source.

Manage JDBC-ODBC Bridge Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

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

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

Integrate JDBC-ODBC Bridge Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register JDBC-ODBC Bridge 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. To connect to an ODBC data source, specify either the DSN (data source name) or specify an ODBC connection string: Set Driver and the connection properties for your ODBC driver.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.jdbcodbc.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 JDBC-ODBC Bridge data. JDBC-ODBC Bridge entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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