Connect to UPS Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to UPS data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for UPS enables you to access UPS as a JDBC data source, providing integration with rapid development tools in IDEs. This article shows how to use the data source configuration wizard to connect to UPS data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for UPS

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to UPS data.

  1. In the Data Sources window, right-click and then click Add Data Source -> DB Data Source.
  2. In the Data Source Properties dialog that appears, the following properties are required:

    • JDBC Driver Files: Click the button next to this menu to add the JDBC Driver file cdata.jdbc.ups.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.ups.UPSDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:ups: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      The driver uses five pieces of information in order to authenticate its actions with the UPS service.

      • Server: This controls the URL where the requests should be sent. Common testing options for this are: https://wwwcie.ups.com/ups.app/xml and https://wwwcie.ups.com/webservices
      • AccessKey: This is an identifier that is required to connect to a UPS Server. This value will be provided to you by UPS after registration.
      • UserId: This value is used for logging into UPS. This value is the one you chose to login with when registering for service with UPS.
      • Password: This value is used for logging into UPS. This value is the one you chose to login with when registering for service with UPS.
      • AccountNumber: This is a valid 6-digit or 10-digit UPS account number.
      • PrintLabelLocation: This property is required if one intends to use the GenerateLabels or GenerateReturnLabels stored procedures. This should be set to the folder location where generated labels should be stored.

      Built-in Connection String Designer

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

      java -jar cdata.jdbc.ups.jar

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

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:ups:Server=https://wwwcie.ups.com/ups.app/xml;AccessKey=myAccessKey;Password=myPassword;AccountNumber=myAccountNumber;UserId=myUserIdInitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Edit and Save UPS Data

To discover schema information, right-click the data source you just created and click Refresh Tables. To query a table, right-click it and then click Open Tables Editor. You can also modify records in the Table Editor.
