MariaDB JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with MariaDB databases.

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

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

Integrate MariaDB Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register MariaDB 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.

    The Server and Port properties must be set to a MariaDB server. If IntegratedSecurity is set to false, then User and Password must be set to valid user credentials. Optionally, Database can be set to connect to a specific database. If not set, the tables from all databases are reported.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.mariadb.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 MariaDB data. MariaDB entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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