Wave Financial JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Wave Financial.



Use CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial with the open source ETL/ELT tool Embulk to load Wave Financial data to a database.

Embulk is an open source bulk data loader. When paired with the CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial, Embulk easily loads data from Wave Financial to any supported destination. In this article, we explain how to use the CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial in Embulk to load Wave Financial data to a MySQL dtabase.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData JDBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Wave Financial data. When you issue complex SQL queries to Wave Financial, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Wave Financial and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations).

Configure a JDBC Connection to Wave Financial Data

Before creating a bulk load job in Embulk, note the installation location for the JAR file for the JDBC Driver (typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial\lib).

Embulk supports JDBC connectivity, so you can easily connect to Wave Financial and execute SQL queries. Before creating a bulk load job, create a JDBC URL for authenticating with Wave Financial.

Connect using the API Token

You can connect to Wave Financial by specifying the APIToken You can obtain an API Token using the following steps:

  1. Log in to your Wave account and navigate to "Manage Applications" in the left pane.
  2. Select the application that you would like to create a token for. You may need to create an application first.
  3. Click the "Create token" button to generate an APIToken.

Connect using OAuth

If you wish, you can connect using the embedded OAuth credentials. See the Help documentation for more information.

Built-in Connection String Designer

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

java -jar cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.jar

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

Below is a typical JDBC connection string for Wave Financial:

jdbc:wavefinancial:InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Load Wave Financial Data in Embulk

After installing the CData JDBC Driver and creating a JDBC connection string, install the required Embulk plugins.

Install Embulk Input & Output Plugins

  1. Install the JDBC Input Plugin in Embulk.
    https://github.com/embulk/embulk-input-jdbc/tree/master/embulk-input-jdbc
  2. embulk gem install embulk-input-jdbc
  3. In this article, we use MySQL as the destination database. You can also choose SQL Server, PostgreSQL, or Google BigQuery as the destination using the output Plugins.
    https://github.com/embulk/embulk-output-jdbc/tree/master/embulk-output-mysql embulk gem install embulk-output-mysql

With the input and output plugins installed, we are ready to load Wave Financial data into MySQL using Embulk.

Create a Job to Load Wave Financial Data

Start by creating a config file in Embulk, using a name like wavefinancial-mysql.yml.

  1. For the input plugin options, use the CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial, including the path to the driver JAR file, the driver class (e.g. cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.WaveFinancialDriver), and the JDBC URL from above
  2. For the output plugin options, use the values and credentials for the MySQL database

Sample Config File (wavefinancial-mysql.yml)

in: type: jdbc driver_path: C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial 20xx\lib\cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.jar driver_class: cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.WaveFinancialDriver url: jdbc:wavefinancial:InitiateOAuth=REFRESH table: "Invoices" out: type: mysql host: localhost database: DatabaseName user: UserId password: UserPassword table: "Invoices" mode: insert

After creating the file, run the Embulk job.

embulk run wavefinancial-mysql.yml

After running the the Embulk job, find the Salesforce data in the MySQL table.

Load Filtered Wave Financial Data

In addition to loading data directly from a table, you can use a custom SQL query to have more granular control of the data loaded. You can also perform increment loads by setting a last updated column in a SQL WHERE clause in the query field.

in: type: jdbc driver_path: C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial 20xx\lib\cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.jar driver_class: cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.WaveFinancialDriver url: jdbc:wavefinancial:InitiateOAuth=REFRESH query: "SELECT Id, DueDate FROM Invoices WHERE [RecordId] = 1" out: type: mysql host: localhost database: DatabaseName user: UserId password: UserPassword table: "Invoices" mode: insert
