Connect to Act CRM from a Connection Pool in WebLogic

Use the CData JDBC Driver for Act CRM to connect to Act CRM data from Web applications running on WebLogic.

The CData JDBC Driver for Act CRM enables you to follow standard procedures to integrate Act CRM data into Java Web applications. This article shows how to deploy the CData JDBC Driver for Act CRM in WebLogic server.

Install the JDBC Driver in WebLogic Server

Add the driver JAR and license file to the classpath your application will be using. The .lic file must be located in the same folder as the JAR. These files are located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.

If you want to add the driver to all domains, add the JAR to the WEBLOGIC_CLASSPATH environment variable. add the following line to the commEnv.cmd/sh script in WL_HOME\common\bin\.

set WEBLOGIC_CLASSPATH=your-installation-directory\lib\cdata.jdbc.actcrm.jar;%WEBLOGIC_CLASSPATH%

If you want to add the driver to a specific domain, you will need to add the JAR to the PRE_CLASSPATH environment variable. Add the following line to the setDomainEnv.cmd/sh script in the bin subfolder of the folder for that domain:

set PRE_CLASSPATH=your-installation-directory\lib\cdata.jdbc.actcrm.jar;%PRE_CLASSPATH%

Create a JDBC Data Source for Act CRM

After installing the driver, create the connection.

  1. In the Domain Structure tree, click Services -> Data Sources -> New -> Generic Data Source.
  2. On the JDBC Data Source Properties page, enter the following information:
    • Name: Enter a user-friendly name; for example, actcrmjdbc.
    • JDBC Name: Enter the path the JDBC data source will be bound to; for example, jdbc/ActCRM.
    • Database Type: Select Other.

  3. Click Next to use the default options. On the last page, enter the following information and click Test Configuration:

    • Driver Class Name: Enter the driver class, cdata.jdbc.actcrm.ActCRMDriver, in this property.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL. A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:actcrm:URL=https://myActCRMserver.com;User=myUser;Password=myPassword;ActDatabase=MyDB;

      The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid Act! user credentials. In addition to the authentication values, see the following:

      • Connecting to Act! Premium

        In addition to the authentication values, the URL to Act! is also required; for example https://eup1-iis-04.eu.hosted.act.com/.

        Additionally, you must specify the ActDatabase you will connect to. This is found by going to the About Act! Premium menu of your account, at the top right of the page, in the ? menu. Use the Database Name in the window that appears.

      • Connecting to Act! Premium Cloud

        To connect to your Act! Premium Cloud account, you also need to specify the ActCloudName property. This property is found in the URL address of the Cloud account; for example https://eup1-iis-04.eu.hosted.act.com/ActCloudName/.

      Note that retrieving ActCRM metadata can be expensive. It is advised that you set the CacheMetadata property to store the metadata locally.

    • Database User Name: Enter the username, if not specified in the JDBC URL.
    • Password: Enter the password, if not specified in the JDBC URL.

After selecting the server where you want to deploy the JDBC data source, you can now connect to Act CRM data.

More WebLogic Integration

The steps above show how configure the driver in a simple connection pooling scenario. For more use cases and information, see the JDBC sections in the WebLogic Data Sources chapter of the Oracle Fusion Middleware documentation.
