Connect to DocuSign Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

The CData JDBC driver for DocuSign is easy to integrate with Java Web applications. This article shows how to efficiently connect to DocuSign data in Jetty by configuring the driver for connection pooling. You will configure a JNDI resource for DocuSign 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 DocuSign data source at the level of the Web app, in WEB-INF\jetty-env.xml.

    <Configure id='docusigndemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="docusigndemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="docusigndemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/docusigndb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.docusign.DocuSignDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:docusign:</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientId">MyClientId</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientSecret">MyClientSecret</Set> <Set name="CallbackURL">http://localhost:33333</Set> <Set name="InitiateOAuth">GETANDREFRESH</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    To connect to DocuSign, set the following connection properties:

    • UseSandbox: indicates whether current user account is sandbox or not (FALSE by default)
    • AccountId (optional): set it in the connection string if you have access to multiple Account Ids

    Authenticating to DocuSign

    DocuSign uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the Help documentation more information.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

The steps above show how to configure the driver in a simple connection pooling scenario. For more use cases and information, see the Working with Jetty JNDI chapter in the Jetty documentation.
