Connect to Authorize.Net Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='authorizedotnetdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="authorizedotnetdemo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="authorizedotnetdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/authorizedotnetdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.authorizenet.AuthorizeNetDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:authorizenet:</Set> <Set name="LoginId">MyLoginId</Set> <Set name="TransactionKey">MyTransactionKey</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    You can obtain the necessary connection properties on the Security Settings -> General Settings page after logging into your Merchant Account.

    • UseSandbox: The Authorize.Net API to be used to process transactions. If you are using a production account, this property can be left blank. If you are using a developer test account, set this to 'TRUE'.
    • LoginID: The API login Id associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions. Note that this value is not the same as the login Id that you use to log in to the Merchant Interface.
    • TransactionKey: The transaction key associated with your payment gateway account. This property is used to authenticate that you are authorized to submit website transactions.
  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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