Pinterest JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Pinterest.



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

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

Integrate Pinterest Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Pinterest 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.

    Pinterest authentication is based on the standard OAuth flow. To authenticate, you must initially create an app via the Pinterest developer platform where you can obtain an OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL.

    Set InitiateOAuth to GETANDREFRESH and set OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL based on the property values for the app you created.

    See the Help documentation for other OAuth authentication flows.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.pinterest.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:pinterest:OAuthClientId=YourClientId;OAuthClientSecret=YourClientSecret;CallbackURL='https://localhost:33333'InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Pinterest data. Pinterest entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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