Connect to HPCC Systems Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to HPCC Systems data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for HPCC Systems enables you to access HPCC Systems as a JDBC data source, providing integration with rapid development tools in IDEs. This article shows how to use the data source configuration wizard to connect to HPCC Systems data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for HPCC Systems

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to HPCC Systems data.

  1. In the Data Sources window, right-click and then click Add Data Source -> DB Data Source.
  2. In the Data Source Properties dialog that appears, the following properties are required:

    • JDBC Driver Files: Click the button next to this menu to add the JDBC Driver file cdata.jdbc.hpcc.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.hpcc.HPCCDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:hpcc: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      To connect, set the following connection properties: Set URL to the machine name or IP address of the server and the port the server is running on, for example, https://server:port. The User and Password are required to authenticate to the HPCC Systems cluster specified in the URL. Note that LDAP authentication is not currently supported by our ODBC driver.

      Set Version to the WsSQL Web server version. Note that if you have not already done so, you will need to install the WsSQL service on the HPCC Systems server. The WsSQL Web service is used to interact with the underlying HPCC Systems platform.

      Set Cluster to the target cluster.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.hpcc.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:hpcc:URL=http://127.0.0.1:8510;User=test;password=xA123456;Version=1;Cluster=hthor;

Edit and Save HPCC Systems Data

To discover schema information, right-click the data source you just created and click Refresh Tables. To query a table, right-click it and then click Open Tables Editor.
