Connect to Google Ad Manager Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='dfpdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="dfpdemo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="dfpdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/dfpdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.googleadsmanager.GoogleAdsManagerDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:googleadsmanager:</Set> <Set name="InitiateOAuth">GETANDREFRESH</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    Google Ads Manager uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can authorize the data provider to access Google Ads Manager as an individual user or with a service account that you create in the Google APIs Console. See the Getting Started section in the data provider help documentation for an authentication guide.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

    jdbc/dfpdb javax.sql.DataSource Container
  5. You can then access Google Ad Manager with a lookup to java:comp/env/jdbc/dfpdb: InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(); DataSource mydfp = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/dfpdb");

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.
