Manage Sybase Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for Sybase.

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

Integrate Sybase Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Sybase data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    To authenticate with Sybase, set User and Password. Additionally, set IntegratedSecurity; to true to use Windows authentication otherwise, Sybase authentication is used. Set the Server and Database properties. To secure connections with TLS/SSL, set Encrypt to true.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.sybase.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:sybase:User=myuser;Password=mypassword;Server=localhost;Database=mydatabase;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Sybase data. Sybase entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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