Connect to Phoenix Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to Phoenix data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for Phoenix enables you to access Phoenix 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 Phoenix data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for Phoenix

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to Phoenix 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.apachephoenix.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.apachephoenix.ApachePhoenixDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:apachephoenix: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      Connect to Apache Phoenix via the Phoenix Query Server. Set the Server and Port (if different from the default port) properties to connect to Apache Phoenix. The Server property will typically be the host name or IP address of the server hosting Apache Phoenix.

      Authenticating to Apache Phoenix

      By default, no authentication will be used (plain). If authentication is configured for your server, set AuthScheme to NEGOTIATE and set the User and Password properties (if necessary) to authenticate through Kerberos.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.apachephoenix.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:apachephoenix:Server=localhost;Port=8765;

Edit and Save Phoenix 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.
