Connect to Spark Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Spark data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for Spark seamlessly integrates Spark data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Spark data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for Spark in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Spark Data into DBArtisan Projects

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

Set the Server, Database, User, and Password connection properties to connect to SparkSQL.

You can then follow the steps below to register Spark data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to Spark data. Spark entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Spark data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Spark API.
