Connect to Dynamics 365 Business Central from a Connection Pool in WebLogic

Use the CData JDBC Driver for Dynamics 365 Business Central to connect to Dynamics 365 Business Central data from Web applications running on WebLogic.

The CData JDBC Driver for Dynamics 365 Business Central enables you to follow standard procedures to integrate Dynamics 365 Business Central data into Java Web applications. This article shows how to deploy the CData JDBC Driver for Dynamics 365 Business Central 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.d365businesscentral.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.d365businesscentral.jar;%PRE_CLASSPATH%

Create a JDBC Data Source for Dynamics 365 Business Central

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, d365businesscentraljdbc.
    • JDBC Name: Enter the path the JDBC data source will be bound to; for example, jdbc/D365BusinessCentral.
    • 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.d365businesscentral.D365BusinessCentralDriver, in this property.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL. A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:d365businesscentral:OrganizationUrl=https://myaccount.financials.dynamics.com/;

      To authenticate to Dynamics 365 Business Central, you must provide the User and AccessKey properties.

      To obtain the User and AccessKey values, navigate to the Users page in Dynamics 365 Business Central and then click on Edit. The User Name and Web Service Access Key values are what you will enter as the User and AccessKey connection string properties. Note that the User Name is not your email address. It is a shortened user name.

      To connect to data, specify OrganizationUrl. If you have multiple companies in your organization, you must also specify the Company to indicate which company you would like to connect to. Company does not need to be specified if you have only one company.

    • 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 Dynamics 365 Business Central data.
