WooCommerce JDBC Driver

Rapidly create and deploy powerful Java applications that integrate with WooCommerce Ecommerce Software



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

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

    <Configure id='woocommercedemo' class="org.eclipse.jetty.webapp.WebAppContext"> <New id="woocommercedemo" class="org.eclipse.jetty.plus.jndi.Resource"> <Arg><Ref refid="woocommercedemo"/></Arg> <Arg>jdbc/woocommercedb</Arg> <Arg> <New class="cdata.jdbc.woocommerce.WooCommerceDriver"> <Set name="url">jdbc:woocommerce:</Set> <Set name="Url">https://example.com/</Set> <Set name="ConsumerKey">ck_ec52c76185c088ecaa3145287c8acba55a6f59ad</Set> <Set name="ConsumerSecret">cs_9fde14bf57126156701a7563fc87575713c355e5</Set> <Set name="InitiateOAuth">GETANDREFRESH</Set> </New> </Arg> </New> </Configure>

    WooCommerce supports the following authentication methods: one-legged OAuth1.0 Authentication and standard OAuth2.0 Authentication.

    Connecting using one-legged OAuth 1.0 Authentication

    Specify the following properties (NOTE: the below credentials are generated from WooCommerce settings page and should not be confused with the credentials generated by using WordPress OAuth2.0 plugin):

    • ConsumerKey
    • ConsumerSecret

    Connecting using WordPress OAuth 2.0 Authentication

    After having configured the plugin, you may connect to WooCommerce by providing the following connection properties:

    • OAuthClientId
    • OAuthClientSecret
    • CallbackURL
    • InitiateOAuth - Set this to either GETANDREFRESH or REFRESH

    In either case, you will need to set the Url property to the URL of the WooCommerce instance.

  4. Configure the resource in the Web.xml:

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

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.
