Connect to au Wowma Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

The CData JDBC Driver for au Wowma supports connection pooling: This article shows how to connect faster to au Wowma data from Web apps in Jetty.

The CData JDBC driver for au Wowma is easy to integrate with Java Web applications. This article shows how to efficiently connect to au Wowma data in Jetty by configuring the driver for connection pooling. You will configure a JNDI resource for au Wowma in Jetty.

Configure the JDBC Driver for Salesforce as a JNDI Data Source

Follow the steps below to connect to Salesforce from Jetty.

  1. Enable the JNDI module for your Jetty base. The following command enables JNDI from the command-line:

    java -jar ../start.jar --add-to-startd=jndi
  2. Add the CData and license file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory, into the lib subfolder of the context path.
  3. Declare the resource and its scope. Enter the required connection properties in the resource declaration. This example declares the au Wowma data source at the level of the Web app, in WEB-INF\jetty-env.xml.

    <Configure id='wowmademo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="wowmademo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="wowmademo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/wowmadb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.wowma.WowmaDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:wowma:</Set> <Set name="ApiKey">MyApiKey</Set> <Set name="ShopId">MyShopId</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>
  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

    jdbc/wowmadb javax.sql.DataSource Container
  5. You can then access au Wowma with a lookup to java:comp/env/jdbc/wowmadb: InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(); DataSource mywowma = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/wowmadb");
