In a prior post I explained how to create a simple Java application that downloads Salesforce data via the RSSBus JDBC Salesforce driver. Here’s the script to create a Windows Installer that will install the Java application onto a Windows machine.
I recently developed an application that synchronizes Salesforce.com data to a local PC. The application is developed in Java using the Swing graphical framework and uses a Salesforce.com JDBC driver provided by RSSBus. The application stores Salesforce.com credentials and synchronization interval timing data in a Java properties file. The application allows non-graphical execution via the “nogui” command argument. I also include an Apache Commons Daemon class and script that allows running the application as a service. The follow code is licensed under the GPLv3.
