AWS Management JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with live AWS Management data!



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

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

    <Configure id='awsmanagementdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="awsmanagementdemo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="awsmanagementdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/awsmanagementdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.awsdatamanagement.AWSDataManagementDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:awsdatamanagement:</Set> <Set name="AccessKey">myAccessKey</Set> <Set name="Account">myAccountName</Set> <Set name="Region">us-east-1</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    To authorize AWSDataManagement requests, provide the credentials for an administrator account or for an IAM user with custom permissions:

    1. Set AccessKey to the access key Id.
    2. Set SecretKey to the secret access key.
    3. Set Region to the region where your AWSDataManagement data is hosted.

    Note: Though you can connect as the AWS account administrator, it is recommended to use IAM user credentials to access AWS services.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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