Connect to Oracle Eloqua Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='eloquademo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="eloquademo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="eloquademo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/eloquadb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.oracleeloqua.OracleEloquaDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:oracleeloqua:</Set> <Set name="User">user</Set> <Set name="Password">password</Set> <Set name="Company">CData</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    There are two authentication methods available for connecting to Oracle Eloqua: Login and OAuth. The Login method requires you to have the Company, User, and Password of the user.

    If you do not have access to the username and password or do not wish to require them, you can use OAuth authentication. OAuth is better suited for allowing other users to access their own data. Using login credentials is better suited for accessing your own data.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

    jdbc/eloquadb javax.sql.DataSource Container
  5. You can then access Oracle Eloqua with a lookup to java:comp/env/jdbc/eloquadb: InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(); DataSource myeloqua = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/eloquadb");
