Connect to WooCommerce Data in IntelliJ

Integrate connectivity to WooCommerce data with wizards in IntelliJ.

The CData JDBC Driver for WooCommerce enables you to access WooCommerce 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 WooCommerce data in IntelliJ.

Create a JBDC Data Source for WooCommerce

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define connection properties required to connect to WooCommerce 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.woocommerce.jar, located in the installation directory.
    • JDBC Driver Class: In this menu, select cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.WooCommerceDriver from the list.
    • Database URL: Enter the connection URL in the JDBC URL property. The URL must start with jdbc:woocommerce: and includes connection properties separated with semicolons.

      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.

      A typical JDBC URL is the following:

      jdbc:woocommerce:Url=https://example.com/; ConsumerKey=ck_ec52c76185c088ecaa3145287c8acba55a6f59ad; ConsumerSecret=cs_9fde14bf57126156701a7563fc87575713c355e5; InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Edit and Save WooCommerce 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.
