Sage Cloud Accounting JDBC Driver

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



Connect to Sage Cloud Accounting from wizards and query Sage Cloud Accounting data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Sage Cloud Accounting enables standards-based access from third-party tools, from wizards in IDEs to data management and analysis tools. This article shows how to connect to Sage Cloud Accounting using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Sage Cloud Accounting Data

  1. Open the RazorSQL application and, in the Connections menu, select Add Connection Profile -> Other -> JDBC.
  2. In the Connection Wizard that appears, set the following properties:
    • Driver Location: Set this property to the path to the lib subfolder in the installation directory.
    • Driver Class: Set the driver class to cdata.jdbc.sagebcaccounting.SageBCAccountingDriver.
    • Username: Enter the username. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • Password: Enter the password. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • JDBC URL: Enter connection parameters. The JDBC URL begins 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 the following:

      jdbc:sagebcaccounting:InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Query Sage Cloud Accounting Data and Select Tables

After establishing a connection, the wizard will close and the connection will be available in the connections panel. You can then query the tables.
