Connect to SAP Business One Data in Aqua Data Studio

Access SAP Business One data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for SAP Business One integrates SAP Business One data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to SAP Business One 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 SAP Business One 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, SAP Business One.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.sapbusinessone.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.sapbusinessone.SAPBusinessOneDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:sapbusinessone: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      To authenticate to SAP Business One you must provide the Userand Passwordproperties.

      To connect to data, specify Url. This is your SAP Business One Service Layer root URL.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.sapbusinessone.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:sapbusinessone:Url=http://localhost:50000/b1s/v1;User=username;Password=password;CompanyDB=dbname;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Query SAP Business One Data

You can now query the tables exposed.
