I need to connect to the Confluence databases to the extent where i can execute SQL queries and get results.
When attempting to create a JDBC connection in my user search plugin, I get the following error
java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc/renderStatsDS
This is (i believe) because Confluence uses a resource on the server to connect automatically to it's database.
I've found the resource at opt/atlassian/confluence/conf/server.xml
<Resource name="jdbc/renderStatsDS" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource" driverClassName="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver" url="jdbc:mysql://aveley.dhcp.dneg.com/renderstats?autoReconnect=true" username="safety" password="safety" maxActive="25" maxIdle="5" maxWait="10000" />
Does anyone know how to access this resource?
Alternatively if anyone has any code they could share that has connected to the confluence database and been able to execute SQL via some other method, that would obviously be very helpful to me too.
Matt, check my answer to How to access external database through Confluence Plugin earlier today :)
It's almost an identical question. Also, don't forget to add your driver jar to <CATALINA_HOME>\common\lib
My colleague had actually jsut stood up from his seat to come and tell me he'd found out how to do this as I was looking at your response haha.
Thanks a lot for the reply, I'm surprised i didn't find that toher post from this morning when i was searching here, maybe it hadn't been cached yet or something.
Is it possible to create a datasource from the Confluence database (configured in confluence.cfg.xml). I know it can be done by adding another entry in server.xml (duplicate) but if I want to ship my plugin to users, they will need to do this manually and I don't want them too.
