Connect to Tally Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='tallydemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="tallydemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="tallydemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/tallydb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.tally.TallyDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:tally:</Set> <Set name="Url">'http://localhost:9000'</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    Set the following connection properties to connect to Tally Instance:

    • Url: Set this to the URL for your Tally instance. For example: http://localhost:9000.
  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

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.
