JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB

Build 21.0.7930

Establishing a Connection

Creating a JDBC Data Source

You can create a JDBC data source to connect from your Java application. Creating a JDBC data source based on the CData JDBC Driver for EnterpriseDB consists of three basic steps:

  • Add the driver JAR file to the classpath. The JAR file is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory. Note that the .lic file must be located in the same folder as the JAR file.
  • Provide the driver class. For example:
    cdata.jdbc.enterprisedb.EnterpriseDBDriver
  • Provide the JDBC URL. For example:
    jdbc:enterprisedb:User=postgres;Password=admin;Database=postgres;Server=127.0.0.1;Port=5444
    
    or
    
    jdbc:cdata:enterprisedb:User=postgres;Password=admin;Database=postgres;Server=127.0.0.1;Port=5444

    The second format above can be used whenever there is a conflict in your application between drivers using the same URL format to ensure you are using the CData driver. The URL must start with either "jdbc:enterprisedb:" or "jdbc:cdata:enterprisedb:" and can include any of the connection properties in name-value pairs separated with semicolons.

Connecting to EnterpriseDB

The following connection properties are required in order to connect to data.

  • User: The user which will be used to authenticate with the EnterpriseDB server.
  • Password: The password which will be used to authenticate with the EnterpriseDB server.
  • Server: The host name or IP of the server hosting the EnterpriseDB database.
  • Port: The port of the server hosting the EnterpriseDB database.

You can also optionally set the following:

  • Database: The default database to connect to when connecting to the EnterpriseDB Server. If this is not set, the user's default database will be used.
