Connect to Microsoft Teams Data in JRuby

Create a simple JRuby app with access to live Microsoft Teams data.

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

Configure a JDBC Connection to Microsoft Teams 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 Microsoft Teams\lib).

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

You can connect to MS Teams using the embedded OAuth connectivity. When you connect, the MS Teams OAuth endpoint opens in your browser. Log in and grant permissions to complete the OAuth process. See the OAuth section in the online Help documentation for more information on other OAuth authentication flows.

Built-in Connection String Designer

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

java -jar cdata.jdbc.msteams.jar

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

Below is a typical JDBC connection string for Microsoft Teams:

jdbc:msteams:OAuthClientId=MyApplicationId;OAuthClientSecret=MySecretKey;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

Create a JRuby App with Connectivity to Microsoft Teams Data

Create a new Ruby file (for example: MSTeamsSelect.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 Microsoft Teams 2018/lib/cdata.jdbc.msteams.jar' url = "jdbc:msteams:OAuthClientId=MyApplicationId;OAuthClientSecret=MySecretKey;CallbackURL=http://localhost:33333;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH" conn = java.sql.DriverManager.getConnection(url) stmt = conn.createStatement rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT subject, location_displayName FROM Teams") while (rs.next) do puts rs.getString(1) + ' ' + rs.getString(2) end

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

jruby -S MSTeamsSelect.rb
