Complete read-write access to Twilio enables developers to search (Accounts, Applications, Messages, Recordings, etc.), update items, edit customers, and more, from any Java/J2EE application.

Connect to Twilio Data from a Connection Pool in Jetty

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

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

    <Configure id='twiliodemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="twiliodemo" class=""> <Arg><Ref refid="twiliodemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/twiliodb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.twilio.TwilioDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:twilio:</Set> <Set name="AccountSid">MyAccountSid</Set> <Set name="AuthToken">MyAuthToken</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    Use the AccountSid and AuthToken connection properties to access data from your account. You obtain your live credentials on your Twilio account dashboard. Click Account -> Account Settings to obtain your test credentials.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

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.
