SAP Business One DI JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with SAP Business One DI.



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

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

    <Configure id='sapbusinessonedidemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="sapbusinessonedidemo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="sapbusinessonedidemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/sapbusinessonedidb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.sapbusinessonedi.SAPBusinessOneDIDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:sapbusinessonedi:</Set> <Set name="Server">ServerName</Set> <Set name="DBServerType">MSSQL_2016</Set> <Set name="CompanyDB">SBODemoCA</Set> <Set name="User">manager</Set> <Set name="Password">manager</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    To connect to SAP Business One DI data, specify the following connection properties:

    • DBServerType: The type of server being connected to.
    • Server: The name or IP address of the Business One DI server to connect to.
    • CompanyDB: The company to connect to.
    • User: The username used when connecting to the LicenseServer.
    • Password: The password used when connecting to the LicenseServer.
    • LicenseServer (optional): Set this if your License Server is different from the Server.
    • UseTrusted (optional): Set to TRUE to connect using Windows credentials.
  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

    jdbc/sapbusinessonedidb javax.sql.DataSource Container
  5. You can then access SAP Business One DI with a lookup to java:comp/env/jdbc/sapbusinessonedidb: InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(); DataSource mysapbusinessonedi = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/sapbusinessonedidb");
