CData JDBC Driver for Active Directory
The CData JDBC Driver for Active Directory offers the most natural way to connect to Active Directory data from Java-based applications and developer technologies. The driver wraps the complexity of accessing Active Directory data in an easy-to-integrate, 100%-Java JDBC driver. Applications can then access Active Directory as a traditional database. The driver hides the complexity of accessing data and provides additional powerful security features, smart caching, batching, socket management, and more.
- Deploy a single JAR that does not rely on client-side libraries.
- Write SQL to retrieve and update Active Directory data.
- Compliant with JDBC 3.0 and JDBC 4.0.
- Codeless integration with popular BI, reporting, and ETL tools.
- Collaborative query processing.
Advanced Features details additional features supported by the driver, such as defining user defined views, ssl configuration, remoting, caching, firewall/proxy settings, and advanced logging.
Using the JDBC Driver
See Using JDBC for examples of using standard JDBC classes like DataSource, Connection, Statement, ResultSet, and others, to work with Active Directory data. Using from Tools walks through the steps of integration with JDBC tools, using several popular database tools as examples.
See JDBC Remoting to configure remote access to the JDBC data source. The JDBC remoting feature allows hosting the JDBC connection on a server to enable connections from virtually anywhere -- various clients on any platform (Java, .NET, C++, PHP, Python, and so on) and using any standards-based technology (ODBC, JDBC, and so on). JDBC remoting is enabled using the popular MySQL wire protocol server.
See SQL Compliance for a syntax reference and code examples outlining the supported SQL.
See Data Model for information on the available entities and how to query them.
Collaborative Query Processing
The driver enhances the data source's capabilities with additional client side processing, when needed, to enable analytic summaries of data such as SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, and so on.
See SupportEnhancedSQL, in the Connection section, for more information.
Connection String Options
The Connection properties describe the various options that can be used to establish a connection.
