NetSuite JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with NetSuite account data including Leads, Contacts, Opportunities, Accounts, and more!



Access NetSuite data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for NetSuite integrates NetSuite data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to NetSuite data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The NetSuite data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, NetSuite.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.netsuite.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.netsuite.NetSuiteDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:netsuite: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid NetSuite user credentials. In addition, the AccountId must be set to the ID of a company account that can be used by the specified User. The RoleId can be optionally specified to log in the user with limited permissions.

      See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for more information on connecting to NetSuite.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.netsuite.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:netsuite:Account Id=XABC123456;Password=password;User=user;Role Id=3;Version=2013_1;

Query NetSuite Data

You can now query the tables exposed.
