Wave Financial JDBC Driver

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



Access and validate Wave Financial data in QuerySurge using the CData JDBC Driver.

QuerySurge is a smart data testing solution that automates data validation and testing. When paired with the CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial, QuerySurge can work with live Wave Financial data. This article walks through connecting to Wave Financial data from QuerySurge.

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.

Connecting to Wave Financial Data in QuerySurge

To connect to live Wave Financial data from QuerySurge, you need to deploy the JDBC Driver JAR file to your QuerySurge Agent(s) and add a new connection from the QuerySurge Admin view.

Deploy the JDBC Driver

  1. Download the CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial installer, unzip the package, and run the JAR file to install the driver.
  2. Once the driver is installed, stop the Agent Service.
  3. Copy the JAR File (and license file if it exists) from the installation location (typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for Wave Financial\lib\) to your Agent(s) (QuerySurge_install_dir\agent\jdbc).
  4. Restart the Agent Service.

For more information on deploying JDBC drivers for QuerySurge, refer to the QuerySurge Knowledge Base.

Configure a New Connection to Wave Financial

  1. Log into QuerySurge and navigate to the Admin view.
  2. Click Configuration -> Connections in the Administration Tree.
  3. Click Add to create a new connection.
  4. In the QuerySurge Connection Wizard, click Next.
  5. Name the connection (e.g. CData JDBC Connection to Wave Financial).
  6. Set the Data Source to "All Other JDBC Connections (Connection Extensibility)" and click Next.
  7. Set the Driver Class to cdata.jdbc.wavefinancial.WaveFinancialDriver and click Next.
  8. Set the Connection URL using the necessary connection properties to authenticate with Wave Financial. Your Connection URL will look something like the following:

    jdbc:wavefinancial:InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

    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.

    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.

  9. Set the Test Query to enable the Test Connection button for the Connection (e.g. SELECT * FROM Invoices LIMIT 1) and click Next.
  10. Click Test Connection to ensure the connection is configured properly and click Save to add the connection.

Once the connection is added, you can write SQL queries against your Wave Financial data in QuerySurge.

Compare Wave Financial Data Queries with a QueryPair

With the connection configured, you can follow the steps below to compare querying Wave Financial data with a QueryPair.

  1. Select "Design Library" from the Design Menu
  2. Click QueryPairs under QuerySurge Design
  3. Click "Create New QueryPair"
  4. Name the QueryPair and click Save
  5. In either the Source or Target panes, select the connection created above (select the same connection to query Wave Financial twice or another connection to perform a comparison)
  6. Write queries in the Editor for each pane, e.g. SELECT * FROM Invoices
  7. Click the "Design-Time Run" tab to execute the queries
  8. When the query execution is finished, click "View Query Results" to see the Wave Financial data returned by the query
