TigerGraph JDBC Driver

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



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

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

Integrate TigerGraph Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register TigerGraph 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 your TigerGraph instance, set the User, Password, and URL properties to valid TigerGraph credentials. By default connections are made on port 14240.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.tigergraph.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:tigergraph:User=MyUserName;Password=MyPassword;URL=MyURL;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to TigerGraph data. TigerGraph entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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