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.



Connect to Twilio from wizards and query Twilio data from the GUI in the RazorSQL database management tool.

The CData JDBC Driver for Twilio enables standards-based access from third-party tools, from wizards in IDEs to data management and analysis tools. This article shows how to connect to Twilio using wizards in RazorSQL.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Twilio Data

  1. Open the RazorSQL application and, in the Connections menu, select Add Connection Profile -> Other -> JDBC.
  2. In the Connection Wizard that appears, set the following properties:
    • Driver Location: Set this property to the path to the lib subfolder in the installation directory.
    • Driver Class: Set the driver class to cdata.jdbc.twilio.TwilioDriver.
    • Username: Enter the username. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • Password: Enter the password. (This property can also be set in the JDBC URL.)
    • JDBC URL: Enter connection parameters. The JDBC URL begins 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 the following:

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

Query Twilio Data and Select Tables

After establishing a connection, the wizard will close and the connection will be available in the connections panel. You can then query the tables.
