NetSuite JDBC Driver

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



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

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

Integrate NetSuite Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register NetSuite 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 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.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:netsuite:Account Id=XABC123456;Password=password;User=user;Role Id=3;Version=2013_1;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to NetSuite data. NetSuite entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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