Manage EDGAR Online Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

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

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

Integrate EDGAR Online Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register EDGAR Online 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.
    1. Navigate to https://developer.edgar-online.com/ and create an account.
    2. Register a new application and retrieve the AppKey. You should select one of the available Web APIs this application will use like HackPack, Insider Trades or Institutional Ownership.
      Note: HackPack is the most important Web API that an application can use since it supports a large number of endpoints. If you are getting the "Access Denied" error you must create a new app and select the correct Web API which supports the resource you are querying.
    3. After successfully creating a new app, you can access your keys through your "my account" area. Set the AppKey connection property value equal to the Key of your application.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.edgaronline.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:edgaronline:AppKey=20dd8ce9904d422ed89ebde1ad40d
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to EDGAR Online data. EDGAR Online entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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