addConnectionOptions

(To be removed) Add JDBC driver-specific connection options

The addConnectionOptions function will be removed in a future release. Use the setoptions function instead. For details, see Compatibility Considerations.

Description

example

opts = addConnectionOptions(opts,Option1,OptionValue1,...,OptionN,OptionValueN) adds JDBC driver-specific connection options using the JDBCConnectionOptions object opts.

Create a JDBC data source for a Microsoft® SQL Server® database, configure the data source by setting JDBC connection options, set an additional JDBC driver-specific option, and save the data source.

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.

Add a JDBC driver-specific connection option by using a name-value pair argument. The option specifies a timeout value for establishing the database connection. opts contains a new section of properties for the additional JDBC connection option.

opts = addConnectionOptions(opts,'loginTimeout',20)
opts = 

  JDBCConnectionOptions with properties:

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

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

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

  Additional JDBC Connection Options:

                loginTimeout: '20'

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)

Input Arguments

collapse all

JDBC connection options, specified as a JDBCConnectionOptions object.

JDBC driver-specific options, specified as one or more name-value pair arguments. Option is a character vector or string scalar that specifies the name of a JDBC driver-specific connection option. OptionValue specifies the value of the connection option. OptionValue can be a character vector, string scalar, logical scalar, or numeric scalar. You can specify any connection option allowed by your JDBC driver. Consult your JDBC driver documentation for the available connection options.

Note

You can specify a JDBC driver-specific connection option in two ways: using this input argument or using the database connection URL. If you specify the same option with different values in both the input argument and URL, the JDBC driver implementation defines which value takes precedence. For maximum portability, specify a JDBC driver-specific connection option in only one of these ways.

Example: 'useSSL',true specifies that the database connection uses SSL authentication.

Output Arguments

JDBC connection options, returned as a JDBCConnectionOptions object.

Alternative Functionality

App

You can add JDBC driver-specific connection options by using the JDBC Data Source Configuration dialog box in the Database Explorer app. In the Data Source section of the Database Explorer tab, select Configure Data Source > Configure JDBC data source.
