Manage WooCommerce Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for WooCommerce.

The CData JDBC Driver for WooCommerce seamlessly integrates WooCommerce data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access WooCommerce data as a database. This article shows how to create a JDBC source for WooCommerce in DBArtisan. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate WooCommerce Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register WooCommerce data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    WooCommerce supports the following authentication methods: one-legged OAuth1.0 Authentication and standard OAuth2.0 Authentication.

    Connecting using one-legged OAuth 1.0 Authentication

    Specify the following properties (NOTE: the below credentials are generated from &service; settings page and should not be confused with the credentials generated by using WordPress OAuth2.0 plugin):

    • ConsumerKey
    • ConsumerSecret

    Connecting using WordPress OAuth 2.0 Authentication

    After having configured the plugin, you may connect to WooCommerce by providing the following connection properties:

    • OAuthClientId
    • OAuthClientSecret
    • CallbackURL
    • InitiateOAuth - Set this to either GETANDREFRESH or REFRESH

    In either case, you will need to set the Url property to the URL of the WooCommerce instance.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:woocommerce:Url=https://example.com/; ConsumerKey=ck_ec52c76185c088ecaa3145287c8acba55a6f59ad; ConsumerSecret=cs_9fde14bf57126156701a7563fc87575713c355e5; InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to WooCommerce data. WooCommerce entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with WooCommerce data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the WooCommerce API.
