Interface Connector

All Superinterfaces:
Cloneable, Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
DefaultConnector, DirectConnector, EISConnectionSpec, JNDIConnector, OracleOCIProxyConnector

public interface Connector extends Serializable, Cloneable
Purpose: Define an interface for supplying TopLink with a Connection to a JDBC database.

Description: This interface defines the methods to be implemented that allow TopLink to acquire a Connection to a JDBC database. There are only 2 methods that need to be implemented:

java.sql.Connection connect(java.util.Properties properties)
void toString( writer)
Once these methods have been implemented, an instance of the new Connector can be passed to a JDBCLogin at startup. For example:
session.getLogin().setConnector(new FooConnector());

  • Method Details

    • clone

      Object clone()
      INTERNAL: Must be cloneable.
    • connect

      Connection connect(Properties properties, Session session)
      INTERNAL: Connect with the specified properties and return the Connection. The properties are driver-specific; but usually contain the "user" and "password". Additional properties can be built by using JDBCLogin.setProperty(String propertyName, Object propertyValue).
    • toString

      void toString(PrintWriter writer)
      INTERNAL: Print something useful on the log. This information will be displayed on the EclipseLink log (by default System.out) at login. See the other implementations of this method for examples.
    • getConnectionDetails

      String getConnectionDetails()
      INTERNAL: Provide the details of my connection information. This is primarily for JMX runtime services.
