Create a Data Access Object for Google Campaign Manager Data using JDBI

A brief overview of creating a SQL Object API for Google Campaign Manager data in JDBI.

JDBI is a SQL convenience library for Java that exposes two different style APIs, a fluent style and a SQL object style. The CData JDBC Driver for Google Campaign Manager integrates connectivity to live Google Campaign Manager data in Java applications. By pairing these technologies, you gain simple, programmatic access to Google Campaign Manager data. This article walks through building a basic Data Access Object (DAO) and the accompanying code to read and write Google Campaign Manager data.

Create a DAO for the Google Campaign Manager CampaignPerformance Entity

The interface below declares the desired behavior for the SQL object to create a single method for each SQL statement to be implemented.

public interface MyCampaignPerformanceDAO { //insert new data into Google Campaign Manager @SqlUpdate("INSERT INTO CampaignPerformance (Device, Device) values (:device, :device)") void insert(@Bind("device") String device, @Bind("device") String device); //request specific data from Google Campaign Manager (String type is used for simplicity) @SqlQuery("SELECT Device FROM CampaignPerformance WHERE Device = :device") String findDeviceByDevice(@Bind("device") String device); /* * close with no args is used to close the connection */ void close(); }

Open a Connection to Google Campaign Manager

Collect the necessary connection properties and construct the appropriate JDBC URL for connecting to Google Campaign Manager.

Google Campaign Manager uses the OAuth authentication standard. The data provider facilitates OAuth in various ways as described below. The following OAuth flow requires the authenticating user to interact with DoubleClick Campaign Manager, using the browser. You can also use a service account to authenticate.

For authentication guides, see the Getting Started section of the data provider help documentation.

Built-in Connection String Designer

For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Google Campaign Manager JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

java -jar cdata.jdbc.googlecm.jar

Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

A connection string for Google Campaign Manager will typically look like the following:


Use the configured JDBC URL to obtain an instance of the DAO interface. The particular method shown below will open a handle bound to the instance, so the instance needs to be closed explicitly to release the handle and the bound JDBC connection.

DBI dbi = new DBI("jdbc:googlecm:UserProfileID=MyUserProfileID;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH"); MyCampaignPerformanceDAO dao =; //do stuff with the DAO dao.close();

Read Google Campaign Manager Data

With the connection open to Google Campaign Manager, simply call the previously defined method to retrieve data from the CampaignPerformance entity in Google Campaign Manager.

//disply the result of our 'find' method String device = dao.findDeviceByDevice("Mobile devices with full browsers"); System.out.println(device);

Write Google Campaign Manager Data

It is also simple to write data to Google Campaign Manager, using the previously defined method.

//add a new entry to the CampaignPerformance entity dao.insert(newDevice, newDevice);

Since the JDBI library is able to work with JDBC connections, you can easily produce a SQL Object API for Google Campaign Manager by integrating with the CData JDBC Driver for Google Campaign Manager.
