SAP Hybris JDBC Driver

Straightforward SAP Hybris C4C integration. Now accessing SAP Hybris C4C Accounts, Activities, Orders, Customers, etc. from any JDBC client is as easy as querying a database.



The SAP Hybris C4C JDBC Driver supports connection pooling: This article shows how to connect faster to SAP Hybris C4C data from Web apps in Jetty.

The CData JDBC driver for SAP Hybris C4C is easy to integrate with Java Web applications. This article shows how to efficiently connect to SAP Hybris C4C data in Jetty by configuring the driver for connection pooling. You will configure a JNDI resource for SAP Hybris C4C 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 Hybris C4C data source at the level of the Web app, in WEB-INF\jetty-env.xml.

    <Configure id='saphybrisdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="saphybrisdemo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="saphybrisdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/saphybrisdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.saphybrisc4c.SAPHybrisC4CDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:saphybrisc4c:</Set> <Set name="User">user</Set> <Set name="Password">password</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer uses basic authentication. Set the User and Password to your login credentials.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

    jdbc/saphybrisdb javax.sql.DataSource Container
  5. You can then access SAP Hybris C4C with a lookup to java:comp/env/jdbc/saphybrisdb: InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(); DataSource mysaphybris = (DataSource)ctx.lookup("java:comp/env/jdbc/saphybrisdb");
