Connect to Wave Financial as a JDBC data source in HULFT Integrate

HULFT Integrate is a modern data integration platform that provides a drag-and-drop user interface to create cooperation flows, data conversion, and processing so that complex data connections are easier than ever to execute. When paired with the CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial, HULFT Integrate can work with live Wave Financial data. This article walks through connecting to Wave Financial and moving the data into a CSV file.

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). Its built-in dynamic metadata querying allows you to work with and analyze Wave Financial data using native data types.

Enable Access to Wave Financial

To enable access to Wave Financial data from HULFT Integrate projects:

  1. Copy the CData JDBC Driver JAR file (and license file if it exists), cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.jar (and cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.lic), to the jdbc_adapter subfolder for the Integrate Server
  2. Restart the HULFT Integrate Server and launch HULFT Integrate Studio

Build a Project with Access to Wave Financial Data

Once you copy the JAR files, you can create a project with access to Wave Financial data. Start by opening Integrate Studio and creating a new project.

  1. Name the project
  2. Ensure the "Create script" checkbox is checked
  3. Click Next
  4. Name the script (e.g.: WaveFinancialtoCSV)

Once you create the project, add components to the script to copy Wave Financial data to a CSV file.

Configure an Execute Select SQL Component

Drag an "Execute Select SQL" component from the Tool Palette (Database -> JDBC) into the Script workspace.

  1. In the "Required settings" tab for the Destination, click "Add" to create a new connection for Wave Financial. Set the following properties:
    • Name: Wave Financial Connection Settings
    • Driver class name: cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.WaveFinancialDriver
    • URL: jdbc:wavefinancial:InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

      Built-in Connection String Designer

      For assistance 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.

      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.

  2. Write your SQL statement. For example:
    SELECT Id, DueDate FROM Invoices
  3. Click "Extraction test" to ensure the connection and query are configured properly
  4. Click "Execute SQL statement and set output schema"
  5. Click "Finish"

Configure a Write CSV File Component

Drag a "Write CSV File" component from the Tool Palette (File -> CSV) onto the workspace.

  1. Set a file to write the query results to (e.g. Invoices.csv)
  2. Set "Input data" to the "Select SQL" component
  3. Add columns for each field selected in the SQL query
  4. In the "Write settings" tab, check the checkbox to "Insert column names into first row"
  5. Click "Finish"

Map Wave Financial Fields to the CSV Columns

Map each column from the "Select" component to the corresponding column for the "CSV" component.

Finish the Script

Drag the "Start" component onto the "Select" component and the "CSV" component onto the "End" component. Build the script and run the script to move Wave Financial data into a CSV file.
