Salesforce Integration with Java

SALESFORCE INTEGRATION WITH JAVA

Salesforce Integration with Java

Salesforce Integration with Java

Ever wondered how we can access the Salesforce Object’s data inside java classes. To achieve the functionality, we need to integrate Salesforce with Java.

Below mentioned are the steps to establish a connection between Salesforce and Java.

  • We need an enterprise WSDL, which can be downloaded from Salesforce instance, Setup>Develop>API>Generate Enterprise WSDL.
  • We need to convert the downloaded WSDL to JAR file in order to import it into Eclipse User Library.
  • To convert it, we need wsc-xx.jar file. This file can be downloaded from http://code.google.com/p/sfdc-wsc/downloads/list . Make sure to choose the correct version of jar file according to your JDK version.
  • To generate the stub code, we need to go to terminal or cmd for Windows.

java -classpath wsc-xx.jar com.sforce.ws.tools.wsdlc *wsdl* *jar.file*   or

java -jar wsc-23.jar *wsdl* *jar.file*

  • wsdl is the name of the WSDL file
  • file is the name of the output jar file that wsdlc generates
  • Once you get the jar file, you need to open eclipse and create a User Library.
  • To create a user library, go to Eclipse>Window>Preferences>Java>Build Path>User Libraries>New and add both the wsc-xx.jar file and the generated enterprise.jar file.
  • Create a new Java project and add the user library created in previous step.
  • Now the eclipse is ready to establish a connection b/w Salesforce and Java.
  • Next a ConnectorConfig object needs to be instantiated with Salesforce username, password and authendpoint, and needs to be passed to EnterpriseConnection Object.

As an example, below is the sample code from the net, which has 4 functions – login(), describeGlobalSample(), querySample() and logout(). The login() establishes the connection, describeGlobal() returns an array of object results that includes the object names that are available to the logged-in user, querySample() fetches the available contacts in the system, and finally the logout().

Make Sure to pass your AuthEndPoint (https://login.salesforce.com/services/Soap/c/22.0/) as an argument before running the code. Also ensure to append your security token after your password.

That’s it.
