Connect to WooCommerce Data in NetBeans

Connect to WooCommerce data in NetBeans with the data source configuration wizard.

The CData JDBC Driver for WooCommerce integrates connectivity to live WooCommerce data in IDEs that support JDBC. The JDBC standard enables you to use built-in data access wizards and other tools supporting rapid development. This article shows how to connect to WooCommerce data in NetBeans. You will create a connection and edit and save WooCommerce data in the Table Editor.

Create a JDBC Data Source for WooCommerce in NetBeans

To create the JDBC data source, expand the Database node in the Service window, right-click the Drivers node, and select New Driver. In the New Driver wizard that results, enter the following information:

  • Driver File(s): Click Add and, in the file explorer dialog that appears, select the cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.jar file. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  • Driver Class: Click Find to search for the driver class inside the JAR. Then select cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.WooCommerceDriver from the menu.
  • Name: Enter the name for the driver.

Define Connection Parameters

Follow the steps below to define required connection properties:

  1. In the Service window, right-click the Database node and click New Connection.

  2. In the New Connection Wizard, enter the following connection properties:

    • Driver Name: In the menu, select the CData JDBC Driver for WooCommerce.
    • User Name: Enter the username. This can also be defined in the JDBC URL.
    • Password: Enter the password. This can also be defined in the JDBC URL.
    • JDBC URL: Specify 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 WooCommerce 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

Query WooCommerce Data

To connect to WooCommerce data, right-click the connection in the Database node and click Connect. After the connection is established, you can expand it to discover schema information.

To load a table in the Data Views window, right-click the table and then click View Data. You can also insert, update, or delete records in the Data Views window.
