Connect to Calendly

Create a Data Access Object for Calendly Data using JDBI

A brief overview of creating a SQL Object API for Calendly data in JDBI.

JDBI is a SQL convenience library for Java that exposes two different style APIs, a fluent style and a SQL object style. The CData JDBC Driver for Calendly integrates connectivity to live Calendly data in Java applications. By pairing these technologies, you gain simple, programmatic access to Calendly data. This article walks through building a basic Data Access Object (DAO) and the accompanying code to read Calendly data.

Create a DAO for the Calendly OrganizationScheduledEvents Entity

The interface below declares the desired behavior for the SQL object to create a single method for each SQL statement to be implemented.

public interface MyOrganizationScheduledEventsDAO { //request specific data from Calendly (String type is used for simplicity) @SqlQuery("SELECT Name FROM OrganizationScheduledEvents WHERE EventType = :eventType") String findNameByEventType(@Bind("eventType") String eventType); /* * close with no args is used to close the connection */ void close(); }

Open a Connection to Calendly

Collect the necessary connection properties and construct the appropriate JDBC URL for connecting to Calendly.

Start by setting the Profile connection property to the location of the Calendly Profile on disk (e.g. C:\profiles\CalendlyProfile.apip). Next, set the ProfileSettings connection property to the connection string for Calendly (see below).

Calendly API Profile Settings

To authenticate to Calendly, you will need to provide an API Key. The Calendly API Key, can be found in your Calendly account, under 'Integrations' > 'API & Webhooks' > 'Generate New Token'. Set the APIKey in the ProfileSettings connection property.

Built-in Connection String Designer

For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Calendly JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

java -jar cdata.jdbc.api.jar

Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

A connection string for Calendly will typically look like the following:


Use the configured JDBC URL to obtain an instance of the DAO interface. The particular method shown below will open a handle bound to the instance, so the instance needs to be closed explicitly to release the handle and the bound JDBC connection.

DBI dbi = new DBI("jdbc:api:Profile=C:\profiles\Calendly.apip;ProfileSettings='APIKey=your_api_token';"); MyOrganizationScheduledEventsDAO dao =; //do stuff with the DAO dao.close();

Read Calendly Data

With the connection open to Calendly, simply call the previously defined method to retrieve data from the OrganizationScheduledEvents entity in Calendly.

//disply the result of our 'find' method String name = dao.findNameByEventType("Meeting"); System.out.println(name);

Since the JDBI library is able to work with JDBC connections, you can easily produce a SQL Object API for Calendly by integrating with the CData JDBC Driver for Calendly. Download a free trial and work with live Calendly data in custom Java applications today.
