Integrate connectivity to SAP Business One DI data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for SAP Business One DI enables you to access SAP Business One DI as a JDBC data source, providing integration with rapid development tools in IDEs. This article shows how to use the data source configuration wizard to connect to SAP Business One DI data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for SAP Business One DI

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to SAP Business One DI data.

  1. In the Data Sources window, right-click and then click Add Data Source -> DB Data Source.
  2. In the Data Source Properties dialog that appears, the following properties are required:

    • JDBC Driver Files: Click the button next to this menu to add the JDBC Driver file cdata.jdbc.sapbusinessonedi.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.sapbusinessonedi.SAPBusinessOneDIDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:sapbusinessonedi: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      To connect to SAP Business One DI data, specify the following connection properties:

      • DBServerType: The type of server being connected to.
      • Server: The name or IP address of the Business One DI server to connect to.
      • CompanyDB: The company to connect to.
      • User: The username used when connecting to the LicenseServer.
      • Password: The password used when connecting to the LicenseServer.
      • LicenseServer (optional): Set this if your License Server is different from the Server.
      • UseTrusted (optional): Set to TRUE to connect using Windows credentials.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.sapbusinessonedi.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:sapbusinessonedi:Server=ServerName;DBServerType=MSSQL_2016;CompanyDB=SBODemoCA;User=manager;Password=manager;
