Connect to Salesforce Pardot Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='pardotdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="pardotdemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="pardotdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/pardotdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.salesforcepardot.SalesforcePardotDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:salesforcepardot:</Set> <Set name="ApiVersion">4</Set> <Set name="User">YourUsername</Set> <Set name="Password">YourPassword</Set> <Set name="UserKey">YourUserKey</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    Salesforce Pardot supports connecting through API Version, Username, Password and User Key.

    • ApiVersion: The Salesforce Pardot API version which the provided account can access. Defaults to 4.
    • User: The Username of the Salesforce Pardot account.
    • Password: The Password of the Salesforce Pardot account.
    • UserKey: The unique User Key for the Salesforce Pardot account. This key does not expire.
    • IsDemoAccount (optional): Set to TRUE to connect to a demo account.

    Accessing the Pardot User Key

    The User Key of the current account may be accessed by going to Settings -> My Profile, under the API User Key row.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

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.
