MYOB AccountRight JDBC Driver

Complete read-write access to MYOB AccountRight enables developers to search (Customers, Transactions, Invoices, Sales Receipts, etc.), update items, edit customers, and more, from any Java/J2EE application.



Use the CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight to create a virtual data source for MYOB AccountRight data in the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator.

Denodo Platform is a data virtualization product providing a single point of contact for enterprise database data. When paired with the CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight, Denodo users can work with live MYOB AccountRight data alongside other enterprise data sources. This article walks through creating a virtual data source for MYOB AccountRight in the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live MYOB AccountRight data. When you issue complex SQL queries to MYOB AccountRight, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to MYOB AccountRight and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations). Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze MYOB AccountRight data using native data types.

Create an MYOB AccountRight Virtual Port

To connect to live MYOB AccountRight data from Denodo, you need to copy the JDBC Driver JAR file to the external library directory for Denodo and create a new JDBC Data Source from the Virtual DataPort Administrator tool.

  1. Download the CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight installer, unzip the package, and run the JAR file to install the driver.
  2. Copy the JAR File (and license file if it exists) from the installation location (typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight\lib\) to the Denodo external library directory (C:\Denodo\Denodo Platform\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\cdata-myob-19).
  3. Open the Denodo Virtual DataPort Administrator tool and navigate to the Server Explorer tab.
  4. Right-click "admin" and select New -> Data source -> JDBC.
  5. Configure the JDBC Connection:
    • Name: your choice, e.g.: myob
    • Database adapter: Generic
    • Driver class path: C:\Denodo\Denodo Platform\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\cdata-myob-19
    • Driver class: cdata.jdbc.myob.MYOBDriver
    • Database URI: Set this to a JDBC URL using the necessary connection properties. For example,

      jdbc:myob:OAuthClientId=YourClientId; OAuthClientSecret=YourClientSecret; CompanyFileId=yourCompanyFileId; CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333; User=companyFileUser; Password=companyFilePassword; InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

      Information on creating the Database URI follows:

      Built-In Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.myob.jar

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

      These properties are required when connecting to a company file (both for Cloud and On-Premise instances).

      • CompanyFileId: You can find this by starting MYOB, opening your data file, and selecting Help -> About MYOB
      • User: The username associated with your company file.
      • Password: The password associated with your company file.

      Connecting to a Cloud Instance

      To connect to a cloud instance of MYOB, you can use the embedded OAuth credentials or create an OAuth app with MYOB. This process is detailed in the Help documentation.

      Connecting to an On-Premise instance:

      When connecting to an on-premise instance, you will need to set the following connection property in addition to those above:

      • InitiateOauth: Set this to OFF.
      • Url: The Url of your MYOB instance.
  6. Click the "Test connection" button to confirm the configuration and click Save.

View MYOB AccountRight Data in the VirtualPort Administrator Tool

After creating the data source, you can create a base view of MYOB AccountRight data for use in the Denodo Platform.

  1. Click the "Create base view" button in the newly created VirtualPort (admin.MYOB).
  2. Expand the object tree and select the objects (tables) you wish to import.
  3. Click the "Create selected" button to create views of the MYOB AccountRight data.
    Optional: Click "Create associations from foreign keys" to define relationships between the objects.
  4. With the view(s) created, navigate to a table (cdata_myob_accounts) in the Server Explorer and double-click the selected table.
  5. In the new tab, click "Execution panel" to open a query panel.
  6. Customize the query in the "Execute" tab or use the default:
    SELECT * FROM cdata_myob_accounts CONTEXT ('i18n'='us_est', 'cache_wait_for_load'='true')
    
  7. Click Execute to view the data.

With the base view created, you can now work with live MYOB AccountRight data like you would any other data source in Denodo Platform, for example, querying MYOB AccountRight in the Denodo Data Catalog.
