Connect to Streak Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='streakdemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="streakdemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="streakdemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/streakdb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.streak.StreakDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:streak:</Set> <Set name="ApiKey">8c84j9b4j54762ce809ej6a782d776j3</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    Use the following steps to generate a new API key for authenticating to Streak.

    1. Navigate to Gmail
    2. Click on the Streak dropdown to the right of the search bar
    3. Select the Integrations button. This will open a window where you can view existing integrations and create new API keys.
    4. Under the Streak API section of integrations, click the button to Create New Key.
  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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