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.



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

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

Integrate Twilio Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Twilio 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.

    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.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:twilio:AccountSid=MyAccountSid;AuthToken=MyAuthToken;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Twilio data. Twilio entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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