SingleStore JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with SingleStore.



How to set SingleStore data as a JDBC data source in FineReport.

The CData JDBC Driver for SingleStore fully implements the JDBC standard and can provide SingleStore data connectivity to a wide variety of BI, reporting, and ETL tools and custom applications. In this article, we explain how to set SingleStore data as JDBC data source in FineReport and view SingleStore data as a table in the Report Designer.

Set Up a JDBC Data Source of SingleStore Data

Follow the instruction below to set SingleStore data as a FineReport database connection.

  1. Copy the cdata.jdbc.singlestore.jar file from the lib folder in the CData JDBC Driver for SingleStore installation directory to the lib folder of the FineReport installation directory. You will need to copy the cdata.jdbc.singlestore.lic file as well.
  2. From the Server tab, select Define Data Connection, click to add a new connection, and click JDBC.

Next we will set up the data connection definition in the window.

  1. Database: Others
  2. JDBC Driver: cdata.jdbc.singlestore.SingleStore Driver
  3. URL: A standard JDBC connection string using semicolon-separated connection properties.

    The following connection properties are required in order to connect to data.

    • Server: The host name or IP of the server hosting the SingleStore database.
    • Port: The port of the server hosting the SingleStore database.
    • Database (Optional): The default database to connect to when connecting to the SingleStore Server. If this is not set, tables from all databases will be returned.

    Connect Using Standard Authentication

    To authenticate using standard authentication, set the following:

    • User: The user which will be used to authenticate with the SingleStore server.
    • Password: The password which will be used to authenticate with the SingleStore server.

    Connect Using Integrated Security

    As an alternative to providing the standard username and password, you can set IntegratedSecurity to True to authenticate trusted users to the server via Windows Authentication.

    Connect Using SSL Authentication

    You can leverage SSL authentication to connect to SingleStore data via a secure session. Configure the following connection properties to connect to data:

    • SSLClientCert: Set this to the name of the certificate store for the client certificate. Used in the case of 2-way SSL, where truststore and keystore are kept on both the client and server machines.
    • SSLClientCertPassword: If a client certificate store is password-protected, set this value to the store's password.
    • SSLClientCertSubject: The subject of the TLS/SSL client certificate. Used to locate the certificate in the store.
    • SSLClientCertType: The certificate type of the client store.
    • SSLServerCert: The certificate to be accepted from the server.

    Connect Using SSH Authentication

    Using SSH, you can securely login to a remote machine. To access SingleStore data via SSH, configure the following connection properties:

    • SSHClientCert: Set this to the name of the certificate store for the client certificate.
    • SSHClientCertPassword: If a client certificate store is password-protected, set this value to the store's password.
    • SSHClientCertSubject: The subject of the TLS/SSL client certificate. Used to locate the certificate in the store.
    • SSHClientCertType: The certificate type of the client store.
    • SSHPassword: The password that you use to authenticate with the SSH server.
    • SSHPort: The port used for SSH operations.
    • SSHServer: The SSH authentication server you are trying to authenticate against.
    • SSHServerFingerPrint: The SSH Server fingerprint used for verification of the host you are connecting to.
    • SSHUser: Set this to the username that you use to authenticate with the SSH server.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.singlestore.jar

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

    When you configure the JDBC URL, you may also want to set the Max Rows connection property. This will limit the number of rows returned, which is especially helpful for improving performance when designing reports and visualizations.

    A typical JDBC URL is below:

    jdbc:singlestore:User=myUser;Password=myPassword;Database=NorthWind;Server=myServer;Port=3306;
  4. Click Connection pool attributes and set Test before getting connections to No.

Click Test connection to ensure you have configured the connection properly. With the connection to SingleStore set up, you can use it as FineReport data source.

Select SingleStore Data in the Report Designer.

  1. Click to add a new template data set and select DB query to open the database query window.
  2. Choose the JDBC connection that you created from the dropdown list.
  3. The SingleStore entities will appear as tables on the left pane.
  4. Write a SELECT statement for the SingleStore data tables and columns that you want to load.
  5. Click preview and data is shown as table.

With these simple steps, SingleStore can be used as a JDBC data source in FineReport.
