Sage Cloud Accounting JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Sage Cloud Accounting.



Access Sage Cloud Accounting data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for Sage Cloud Accounting integrates Sage Cloud Accounting data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to Sage Cloud Accounting data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The Sage Cloud Accounting data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, Sage Cloud Accounting.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.sagebcaccounting.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.sagebcaccounting.SageBCAccountingDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:sagebcaccounting: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      You can connect to Sage Business Cloud Accounting using the embedded OAuth connectivity. When you connect, the OAuth endpoint opens in your browser. Log in and grant permissions to complete the OAuth process. See the OAuth section in the online Help documentation for more information on other OAuth authentication flows.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.sagebcaccounting.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:sagebcaccounting:InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Query Sage Cloud Accounting Data

You can now query the tables exposed.
