Connect to Zoho CRM Data from a Connection Pool in JBoss

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

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 Zoho CRM. You will then access Zoho CRM data from a connection pool.

Create a JDBC Data Source for Zoho CRM 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/ZohoCRM
  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:zohocrm: followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties.

    You will need to obtain an AuthToken to authenticate to Zoho CRM. You can generate an AuthToken on the Zoho CRM website or by calling the GetAuthToken stored procedure. Note that when you generate an AuthToken from Zoho CRM, you can only generate an AuthToken for your user account. You can generate AuthTokens for other user accounts by calling GetAuthToken.

    See the "Getting Started" chapter in the help documentation for a guide.

    A typical connection string is below:

    jdbc:zohocrm:AuthToken=2ad3b3e719f6bed7368e5e7e26e4f988;
  7. Test the connection and finish the wizard. Select the Zoho CRM data source and click Enable.
