Twilio JDBC Driver

Complete read-write access to Twilio enables developers to search (Accounts, Applications, Messages, Recordings, etc.), update items, edit customers, and more, from any Java/J2EE application.



Access Twilio data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for Twilio integrates Twilio data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to Twilio data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The Twilio data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, Twilio.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.twilio.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.twilio.TwilioDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:twilio: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

      Use the AccountSid and AuthToken connection properties to access data from your account. You obtain your live credentials on your Twilio account dashboard. Click Account -> Account Settings to obtain your test credentials.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.twilio.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:twilio:AccountSid=MyAccountSid;AuthToken=MyAuthToken;

Query Twilio Data

You can now query the tables exposed.
