Connect to Exact Online Data from a Connection Pool in JBoss

Integrate Exact Online data into Java servlets: Use the Management Console in JBoss to install the CData JDBC Driver for Exact Online.

CData JDBC drivers can be configured in JBoss by following the standard procedure for connection pooling. This article details how to access Salesforce data from a connection pool in JBoss applications. This article details how to use the JBoss Management Interface to configure the CData JDBC Driver for Exact Online. You will then access Exact Online data from a connection pool.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Exact Online from the Management Console

Follow the steps below to add the driver JAR and define required connection properties.

  1. In the Runtime menu, select the Domain or Server menu, depending on whether you are deploying to a managed domain or to a stand-alone server, and click "Manage deployments" to open the Deployments page.
  2. Click Add. In the resulting wizard, add the JAR file and license for the driver, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory. Finish the wizard with the defaults, select the driver, and click Enable.
  3. In the Configuration menu, click Subsystems -> Connector -> Datasources. This opens the JDBC Datasources page.
  4. Click Add and, in the resulting wizard, enter a name for the driver and the JNDI name. For example: java:jboss/root/jdbc/ExactOnline
  5. Select the driver that you added above.
  6. Enter the JDBC URL and the username and password. The syntax of the JDBC URL is jdbc:exactonline: followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

    Exact Online uses the OAuth authentication standard. The InitiateOAuth connection property facilitates the OAuth flow -- by default, this is set to GETANDREFRESH. You can also use the embedded OAuth credentials or you can register an OAuth app with Exact to obtain your own. In addition to the OAuth values, provide the Region. If Division is not set, the default Division is determined.

    See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for more information.

    A typical connection string is below:

    jdbc:exactonline:Region='United States';Division=5512;
  7. Test the connection and finish the wizard. Select the Exact Online data source and click Enable.
