Connect to Microsoft Teams Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='msteamsdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="msteamsdemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="msteamsdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/msteamsdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.msteams.MSTeamsDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:msteams:</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientId">MyApplicationId</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientSecret">MySecretKey</Set> <Set name="CallbackURL">http://localhost:33333</Set> <Set name="InitiateOAuth">GETANDREFRESH</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    You can connect to MS Teams using the embedded OAuth connectivity. When you connect, the MS Teams OAuth endpoint opens in your browser. Log in and grant permissions to complete the OAuth process. See the OAuth section in the online Help documentation for more information on other OAuth authentication flows.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

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.
