Bing Ads JDBC Driver

An easy-to-use database-like interface for Java based applications and reporting tools access to live Bing Ads data (Campaigns, Ads, Customers, and more).

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

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

    <Configure id='bingadsdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="bingadsdemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="bingadsdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/bingadsdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.bingads.BingAdsDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:bingads:</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientId">MyOAuthClientId</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientSecret">MyOAuthClientSecret</Set> <Set name="CallbackURL">http://localhost:portNumber</Set> <Set name="AccountId">442311</Set> <Set name="CustomerId">5521444</Set> <Set name="DeveloperToken">11112332233</Set> <Set name="InitiateOAuth">GETANDREFRESH</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    The Bing Ads APIs use the OAuth 2 standard. To authenticate, you will need valid Bing Ads OAuth credentials and you will need to obtain a developer token. See the Getting Started section in the Bing Ads data provider help documentation for an authentication guide.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

The steps above show how to configure the driver in a simple connection pooling scenario. For more use cases and information, see the Working with Jetty JNDI chapter in the Jetty documentation.
