Connect to Snapchat Ads Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='snapchatadsdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="snapchatadsdemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="snapchatadsdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/snapchatadsdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.snapchatads.SnapchatAdsDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:snapchatads:</Set> <Set name="InitiateOAuth">GETANDREFRESH</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    You will need to create an OAuth application to connect to Snapchat Ads. See the online Help documentation for an authentication guide.

    Additionally, you can optionally set AccountId to provide a default Account ID (meaning it won't need to be manually provided in the WHERE clause). If the AccountId is not specified, the first account in the Accounts view is used.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

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.
