Oracle Sales JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with Oracle Sales marketing automation platform including Leads, Contacts, Opportunities, Accounts, and more!



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

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

    <Configure id='oraclesalesclouddemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="oraclesalesclouddemo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="oraclesalesclouddemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/oraclesalesclouddb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.oraclesalescloud.OracleSalesCloudDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:oraclesalescloud:</Set> <Set name="HostURL">https://my.host.oraclecloud.com</Set> <Set name="Username">abc123</Set> <Set name="Password">abcdef</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    Oracle Sales uses Basic authentication over SSL; after setting the following connection properties, you are ready to connect:

    • Username: Set this to the user name that you use to log into your Oracle Cloud service.
    • Password: Set this to your password.
    • HostURL: Set this to the Web address (URL) of your Oracle Cloud service.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

The steps above show how to configure the driver in a simple connection pooling scenario. For more use cases and information, see the Working with Jetty JNDI chapter in the Jetty documentation.
