Use the configureJDBCDataSource function to open the JDBC Data Source Configuration dialog box.

configureJDBCDataSource

The JDBC Data Source Configuration dialog box opens.

For information about configuring JDBC data sources, see Configuring Driver and Data Source.

Create, configure, test, and save a JDBC data source for a Microsoft® SQL Server® database.

Create an SQL Server data source.

opts = configureJDBCDataSource('Vendor','Microsoft SQL Server')
opts = 

  JDBCConnectionOptions with properties:

                      Vendor: 'Microsoft SQL Server'
              DataSourceName: ''

                DatabaseName: ''
                      Server: 'localhost'
                  PortNumber: 1433
                    AuthType: 'Server'

          JDBCDriverLocation: ''

opts is a JDBCConnectionOptions object with these properties:

  • Vendor — Database vendor name

  • DataSourceName — Name of the data source

  • DatabaseName — Name of the database

  • Server — Name of the database server

  • PortNumber — Port number

  • AuthType — Authentication type

  • JDBCDriverLocation — Full path of the JDBC driver file

Configure the data source by setting the JDBC connection options for the data source SQLServerDataSource, database server dbtb04, port number 54317, full path to the JDBC driver file, and Windows® authentication.

opts = setConnectionOptions(opts, ...
    'DataSourceName','SQLServerDataSource', ...
    'Server','dbtb04','PortNumber',54317, ...
    'JDBCDriverLocation','C:\Drivers\sqljdbc4.jar', ...
    'AuthType','Windows')
opts = 

  JDBCConnectionOptions with properties:

                      Vendor: 'Microsoft SQL Server'
              DataSourceName: 'SQLServerDataSource'

                DatabaseName: ''
                      Server: 'dbtb04'
                  PortNumber: 54317
                    AuthType: 'Windows'

          JDBCDriverLocation: 'C:\Drivers\sqljdbc4.jar'

The setConnectionOptions function sets the DataSourceName, Server, PortNumber, AuthType, and JDBCDriverLocation properties in the JDBCConnectionOptions object.

Test the database connection with a blank user name and password. The testConnection function returns the logical 1, which indicates the database connection is successful.

username = "";
password = "";
status = testConnection(opts,username,password)
status = logical

   1

Save the configured data source.

saveAsJDBCDataSource(opts)

You can connect to the new data source using the database function or the Database Explorer app.
