Connect to HubSpot Data in JRuby

Create a simple JRuby app with access to live HubSpot data.

JRuby is a high-performance, stable, fully threaded Java implementation of the Ruby programming language. The CData JDBC Driver for HubSpot makes it easy to integrate connectivity to live HubSpot data in JRuby. This article shows how to create a simple JRuby app that connects to HubSpot data, executes a query, and displays the results.

Configure a JDBC Connection to HubSpot Data

Before creating the app, note the installation location for the JAR file for the JDBC Driver (typically C:\Program Files\CData\CData JDBC Driver for HubSpot\lib).

JRuby natively supports JDBC, so you can easily connect to HubSpot and execute SQL queries. Initialize the JDBC connection with the getConnection function of the java.sql.DriverManager class.

HubSpot uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can use the embedded OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL or you can obtain your own by registering an app.

See the Getting Started chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Built-in Connection String Designer

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

java -jar cdata.jdbc.hubspot.jar

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

Below is a typical JDBC connection string for HubSpot:


Create a JRuby App with Connectivity to HubSpot Data

Create a new Ruby file (for example: HubSpotSelect.rb) and open it in a text editor. Copy the following code into your file:

require 'java' require 'rubygems' require 'C:/Program Files/CData/CData JDBC Driver for HubSpot 2018/lib/cdata.jdbc.hubspot.jar' url = "jdbc:hubspot:InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH" conn = java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url) stmt = conn.createStatement rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT Slug, PageViews FROM Prospects") while ( do puts rs.getString(1) + ' ' + rs.getString(2) end

With the file completed, you are ready to display your HubSpot data with JRuby. To do so, simply run your file from the command line:

jruby -S HubSpotSelect.rb

Writing SQL-92 queries to HubSpot allows you to quickly and easily incorporate HubSpot data into your own JRuby applications. Download a free trial today!
