Manage Quandl Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

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

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

Integrate Quandl Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Quandl 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.

    Quandl uses an API key for authentication. See the help documentation for a guide to obtaining the APIKey property.

    Additionally, set the DatabaseCode connection property to the code identifying the Database whose Datasets you want to query with SQL. You can search the available Databases by querying the Databases view.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.quandl.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:quandl:APIKey=abc123;DatabaseCode=WIKI;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Quandl data. Quandl entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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