    Get immediate access to InterSystems IRIS Data Platform™ and build an application using one of several languages. Just click Launch InterSystems IRIS below!

    Instructions are provided below to connect your own IDE to the provided InterSystems IRIS site. You can then work with sample data or create your own data that more closely reflects the specific needs of your application.

    • When you are ready to go off-road, you can get immediate access, free of charge, for up to 90 days.

      Note You must be logged in to launch this InterSystems IRIS instance.
      • This short video demonstrates the basic steps to launch and connect to an instance of InterSystems IRIS on InterSystems Labs.

        • To connect your Java IDE to the provided InterSystems IRIS site:

          1. Verify you have JDK 1.7 or 1.8 installed (if not, install it here: JDK 1.7 or 1.8)
            • You can check your version by going to a command prompt and entering java --version
          2. Open your preferred Java IDE (such as Eclipse, NetBeans, or IntelliJ)
          3. Download the InterSystems IRIS JDBC driver (normally found in the iris-install-dir\dev\java\lib\jdk18 folder but provided here for ease of use)
          4. Add a classpath pointing to the downloaded InterSystems IRIS driver.
            • For example, in Eclipse, go to Java > Build Path > Classpath variables

          Then you can connect your Java application to InterSystems IRIS using the following information in your Java application:

          • Data Source: com.intersystems.jdbc.IRISDataSource
          • External JDBC URL: jdbc:IRIS://IP:Port/USER (See the values for your instance in the Lab Launcher above.)

            • Set up a reference pointing to InterSystems.Data.IRISClient.dll
              • For example, in Microsoft Visual Studio, inside your project, go to References > Add Reference.

            Then you can connect your .NET application to InterSystems IRIS using the following information in your .NET application:

            • IRISADOConnection: InterSystems.Data.IRISClient.IRISADOConnection
            • Connection String: "Server = " + IP + "; Port = " + port + "; Namespace = USER" + "; Password = " + password + "; User ID = " + username (See the values for your instance in the Lab Launcher above.)
