Connect to Salesloft Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='salesloftdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="salesloftdemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="salesloftdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/salesloftdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.salesloft.SalesLoftDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:salesloft:</Set> <Set name="AuthScheme">OAuth</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientId">MyOAuthClientId</Set> <Set name="OAuthClientSecret">MyOAuthClientSecret</Set> <Set name="CallbackUrl">http://localhost:33333</Set> <Set name="InitiateOAuth">GETANDREFRESH</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure> SalesLoft authenticates using the OAuth authentication standard or an API Key. OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with SalesLoft using the browser.

    Using OAuth

    For OAuth authentication, create an OAuth app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the OAuth section in the Help documentation for an authentication guide.

    Using APIKey

    Alternatively, you can authenticate with an APIKey. Provision an API key from the SalesLoft user interface: You will receive a Key which will be used when issuing requests.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

More Jetty Integration

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.
