Sage Cloud Accounting JDBC Driver

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



Integrate Sage Cloud Accounting data with standard components and data source configuration wizards in RapidMiner Studio.

This article shows how you can easily integrate the CData JDBC driver for Sage Cloud Accounting into your processes in RapidMiner. This article uses the CData JDBC Driver for Sage Cloud Accounting to transfer Sage Cloud Accounting data to a process in RapidMiner.

Connect to Sage Cloud Accounting in RapidMiner as a JDBC Data Source

You can follow the procedure below to establish a JDBC connection to Sage Cloud Accounting:

  1. Add a new database driver for Sage Cloud Accounting: Click Connections -> Manage Database Drivers.
  2. In the resulting wizard, click the Add button and enter a name for the connection.
  3. Enter the prefix for the JDBC URL: jdbc:sagebcaccounting:
  4. Enter the path to the cdata.jdbc.sagebcaccounting.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. Enter the driver class: cdata.jdbc.sagebcaccounting.SageBCAccountingDriver
  6. Create a new Sage Cloud Accounting connection: Click Connections -> Manage Database Connections.
  7. Enter a name for your connection.
  8. For Database System, select the Sage Cloud Accounting driver you configured previously.
  9. Enter your connection string in the Host box.

    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 connection string is below:

    InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  10. Enter your username and password if necessary.

You can now use your Sage Cloud Accounting connection with the various RapidMiner operators in your process. To retrieve Sage Cloud Accounting data, drag the Retrieve operator from the Operators view. With the Retrieve operator selected, you can then define which table to retrieve in the Parameters view by clicking the folder icon next to the "repository entry." In the resulting Repository Browser, you can expand your connection node to select the desired example set.

Finally, wire the output to the Retrieve process to a result, and run the process to see the Sage Cloud Accounting data.
