Connect to Email Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='emaildemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="emaildemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="emaildemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/emaildb</Arg> <Arg> <New class=""> <Set name="url">jdbc:email:</Set> <Set name="User">[email protected]</Set> <Set name="Password">password</Set> <Set name="Server"></Set> <Set name="Port">993</Set> <Set name="SMTP Server"></Set> <Set name="SMTP Port">465</Set> <Set name="SSL Mode">EXPLICIT</Set> <Set name="Protocol">IMAP</Set> <Set name="Mailbox">Inbox</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid credentials. The Server must be specified to retrieve emails and the SMTPServer must be specified to send emails.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

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.
