Wordpress JDBC Driver

Provides Java developers with the power to easily connect their Web, Desktop, and Mobile applications to data in Wordpress Pages, Posts, Tags, Users, and more!



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

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

Integrate WordPress Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register WordPress 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.

    To connect to WordPress, set the URL property and other authentication properties. WordPress supports Basic (User and Password) and OAuth2.0 authentication, though Basic is recommended for a testing environment only. To connect with OAuth you will need to register an app with WordPress.

    See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

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

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.wordpress.jar

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

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:wordpress:Url=http://www.yourwordpresshost.com;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to WordPress data. WordPress entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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