Connect to Sage 50 UK from a Connection Pool in WebLogic

Use the CData JDBC Driver for Sage 50 UK to connect to Sage 50 UK data from Web applications running on WebLogic.

The CData JDBC Driver for Sage 50 UK enables you to follow standard procedures to integrate Sage 50 UK data into Java Web applications. This article shows how to deploy the CData JDBC Driver for Sage 50 UK 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.sage50uk.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.sage50uk.jar;%PRE_CLASSPATH%

Create a JDBC Data Source for Sage 50 UK

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, sage50ukjdbc.
    • JDBC Name: Enter the path the JDBC data source will be bound to; for example, jdbc/Sage50UK.
    • 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.sage50uk.Sage50UKDriver, in this property.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL. A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:sage50uk:URL=http://your-server:5493/sdata/accounts50/GCRM/your-address;User=Manager;

      Note: Only Sage 50 UK 2012 and above are supported.

      The User and Password properties, under the Connection section, must be set to valid Sage 50 UK user credentials. These values will be the same used to log in to the Sage 50 UK software.

      Additionally, the URL property, under the Connection section, will need to be set to the address of the company dataset desired. To obtain the address, do the following:

      1. If you have not already done so, open the Sage 50 UK software.
      2. Click Tools -> Internet Options.
      3. Select the SData Settings tab.
      4. Click the Details button next to Sage 50 Accounts. A window is displayed containing a list of company names along with the address to their corresponding datasets.
      5. Set the URL property to the value in the address field next to the company desired.
    • 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 Sage 50 UK 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.
