Manage Redis Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

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

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

Integrate Redis Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Redis 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.

    Set the following connection properties to connect to a Redis instance:

    • Server: Set this to the name or address of the server your Redis instance is running on. You can specify the port in Port.
    • Password: Set this to the password used to authenticate with a password-protected Redis instance , using the Redis AUTH command.

    Set UseSSL to negotiate SSL/TLS encryption when you connect.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.redis.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:redis:Server=127.0.0.1;Port=6379;Password=myPassword;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Redis data. Redis entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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