NetSuite JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with NetSuite account data including Leads, Contacts, Opportunities, Accounts, and more!



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

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

    <Configure id='netsuitedemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="netsuitedemo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="netsuitedemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/netsuitedb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.netsuite.NetSuiteDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:netsuite:</Set> <Set name="Account Id">XABC123456</Set> <Set name="Password">password</Set> <Set name="User">user</Set> <Set name="Role Id">3</Set> <Set name="Version">2013_1</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid NetSuite user credentials. In addition, the AccountId must be set to the ID of a company account that can be used by the specified User. The RoleId can be optionally specified to log in the user with limited permissions.

    See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for more information on connecting to NetSuite.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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