Connect to SAP Concur Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='concurdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="concurdemo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="concurdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/concurdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.sapconcur.SAPConcurDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:sapconcur:</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientId">MyOAuthClientId</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientSecret">MyOAuthClientSecret</Set> <Set name="InitiateOAuth">GETANDREFRESH</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    SAP Concur uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. You will need to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret by registering an app with SAP Concur. See the Getting Started section of the help documentation for an authentication guide.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

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.
