Manage Evernote Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

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

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

Integrate Evernote Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Evernote 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.

    Evernote uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can use the embedded OAuth application to connect without setting any connection properties. Alternatively, you can create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.evernote.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:evernote:OAuthClientId=MyOAuthClientId;OAuthClientSecret=MyOAuthClientSecret;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Evernote data. Evernote entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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