Connect to MYOB AccountRight from a Connection Pool in WebLogic

Use the CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight to connect to MYOB AccountRight data from Web applications running on WebLogic.

The CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight enables you to follow standard procedures to integrate MYOB AccountRight data into Java Web applications. This article shows how to deploy the CData JDBC Driver for MYOB AccountRight in WebLogic server.

Install the JDBC Driver in WebLogic Server

Add the driver JAR and license file to the classpath your application will be using. The .lic file must be located in the same folder as the JAR. These files are located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.

If you want to add the driver to all domains, add the JAR to the WEBLOGIC_CLASSPATH environment variable. add the following line to the commEnv.cmd/sh script in WL_HOME\common\bin\.

set WEBLOGIC_CLASSPATH=your-installation-directory\lib\cdata.jdbc.myob.jar;%WEBLOGIC_CLASSPATH%

If you want to add the driver to a specific domain, you will need to add the JAR to the PRE_CLASSPATH environment variable. Add the following line to the setDomainEnv.cmd/sh script in the bin subfolder of the folder for that domain:

set PRE_CLASSPATH=your-installation-directory\lib\cdata.jdbc.myob.jar;%PRE_CLASSPATH%

Create a JDBC Data Source for MYOB AccountRight

After installing the driver, create the connection.

  1. In the Domain Structure tree, click Services -> Data Sources -> New -> Generic Data Source.
  2. On the JDBC Data Source Properties page, enter the following information:
    • Name: Enter a user-friendly name; for example, myobjdbc.
    • JDBC Name: Enter the path the JDBC data source will be bound to; for example, jdbc/MYOB.
    • Database Type: Select Other.

  3. Click Next to use the default options. On the last page, enter the following information and click Test Configuration:

    • Driver Class Name: Enter the driver class, cdata.jdbc.myob.MYOBDriver, in this property.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL. A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:myob:OAuthClientId=YourClientId; OAuthClientSecret=YourClientSecret; CompanyFileId=yourCompanyFileId; CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333; User=companyFileUser; Password=companyFilePassword;

      These properties are required when connecting to a company file (both for Cloud and On-Premise instances).

      • CompanyFileId: You can find this by starting MYOB, opening your data file, and selecting Help -> About MYOB
      • User: The username associated with your company file.
      • Password: The password associated with your company file.

      Connecting to a Cloud Instance

      To connect to a cloud instance of MYOB, you can use the embedded OAuth credentials or create an OAuth app with MYOB. This process is detailed in the Help documentation.

      Connecting to an On-Premise instance:

      When connecting to an on-premise instance, you will need to set the following connection property in addition to those above:

      • InitiateOauth: Set this to OFF.
      • Url: The Url of your MYOB instance.
    • Database User Name: Enter the username, if not specified in the JDBC URL.
    • Password: Enter the password, if not specified in the JDBC URL.

After selecting the server where you want to deploy the JDBC data source, you can now connect to MYOB AccountRight data.

More WebLogic Integration

The steps above show how configure the driver in a simple connection pooling scenario. For more use cases and information, see the JDBC sections in the WebLogic Data Sources chapter of the Oracle Fusion Middleware documentation.
