Connect to Acumatica Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='acumaticademo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="acumaticademo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="acumaticademo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/acumaticadb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.acumatica.AcumaticaDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:acumatica:</Set> <Set name="Url"></Set> <Set name="User">user</Set> <Set name="Password">password</Set> <Set name="Company">CompanyName</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    Set the following connection properties to connect to Acumatica:

    • User: Set this to your username.
    • Password: Set this to your password.
    • Company: Set this to your company.
    • Url: Set this to your Acumatica URL, in the format http://{Acumatica ERP instance URL}/entity/{Endpoint name}/{Endpoint version}/.
      For example:

    See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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