Manage Teradata Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

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

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

Integrate Teradata Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Teradata 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 connect to Teradata, provide authentication information and specify the database server name.

    • User: Set this to the username of a Teradata user.
    • Password: Set this to the password of the Teradata user.
    • DataSource: Specify the Teradata server name, DBC Name, or TDPID.
    • Port: Specify the port the server is running on.
    • Database: Specify the database name. If not specified, the default database is used.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.teradata.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

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

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