11/22/20228361Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for INSERT queries.

  • The value of [sys_tables].[TableType] column is changed from VIEW to TABLE.
10/31/20228339Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for flattening STRUCT and ARRAY data types.
  • Added the IsPath column to the sys_procedureparameters table.
  • We now support handling the keyword "COLLATE" as standard function name as well.
07/27/20228243Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for SSO authentication via Azure AD as the identity provider.
  • The method GetJDBCMinorVersion() and GetJDBCMajorVersion() return 4.2 as the supported JDBC major / minor version.
  • Removed support for JRE 1.6. JRE 1.8 and above is now required.
03/16/20228110Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for Instance Metadata Service Version 2 (IMDSv2) when authenticating from an Amazon EC2 instance.
  • The method DatabaseMetaData.getTypeInfo() now returns all the data types the driver supports. Previously it was returning only a portion of the data types. The returns types include: tinyint, smallint, int, bigint, float, double, numeric, decimal, bit, date, datetime, time, varchar, binary, uuid.
  • Correct the return value of method DatabaseMetaData.supportsOuterJoins(), it used to return the wrong value.
12/17/20218021Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support to automatically resolve the fully qualified name of the schemas and views based on the specified schema and view name in the query.
  • Added the CrossAccountId connection property used to retrieve metadata from a different AWS Glue account.
  • Support for JDK 17
  • Removed IS_READONLY, IS_KEY, NUMERIC_PRECISION, DECIMAL_DIGITS from DatabaseMetadata.GetColumns() as they are not part of the JDBC Specification. This information is still available via other metadata calls.
  • Added support for the STRING_SPLIT table-valued function in the CROSS APPLY clause.
  • Added the KeySeq column to the sys_foreignkeys table.
  • Added the new sys_primarykeys system table.
  • Updated the Literal Function Names for relative date/datetime functions. Previously relative date/datetime functions resolved to a different value when used in the projection vs te predicate. Ie: SELECT LAST_MONTH() AS lm, Col FROM Table WHERE Col > LAST_MONTH(). Formerly the two LAST_MONTH() methods would resolve to different datetimes. Now they will match.
  • As a replacement for the previous behavior, the relative date/datetime functions in the criteria may have an 'L' appended to them. Ie: WHERE col > L_LAST_MONTH(). This will continue to resolve to the same values that previously were calculated in the criteria. Note that the "L_" prefix will only work in the predicate - it not available for the projection.
07/12/20217863Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for federated queries. The provider now supports queries ( joins, unions etc ) on cross catalogs and schemas.
  • Added the TCP Logging Module for the logging information happening on the TCP wire protocol. The transport bytes that are incoming and ongoing will be logged at verbosity=5.
06/25/20217846Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for dynamic data sources ( catalogs ). DataSource or Catalog connection properties can be used to specify a custom data source to work with.
06/23/20217844Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added the ShowS3Filepath connection property, which sets whether or not to expose the _S3Path column for each source table.
05/25/20217815Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for FIPS endpoints via the EnableFIPSMode connection property.
05/17/20217807Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for Single Sign On (SSO) connection with PingFederate as the Identity Provider (IdP).
05/10/20217800Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for the CreateSchema stored procedure and for the GenerateSchemaFiles connection property.
04/30/20217790Amazon AthenaAdded
  • Added support for AthenaVPCEndpoint. It may be used to specify a custom VPC endpoint to connect with instead of the standard Amazon endpoint.
  • Added support for handling client side formulas during insert / update. For example: UPDATE Table SET Col1 = Concat(Col1, " - ", Col2) WHERE Col2 LIKE 'A%'
  • Updated how display sizes are determined for varchar primary key and foreign key columns so they will match the reported length of the column.
  • Non-conditional updates between two columns is now available to all drivers. For example: UPDATE Table SET Col1=Col2

  • Reduced the length to 255 for varchar primary key and foreign key columns.
  • Updated implicit and metadata caching to improve performance and support for multiple connections. Old metadata caches are not compatible - you would need to generate new metadata caches if you are currently using CacheMetadata.
  • Updated index naming convention to avoid duplicates
  • Updated and standardized Getting Started connection help.
  • Added the Advanced Features section to the help of all drivers.
  • Categorized connection property listings in the help for all editions.
04/15 /20217775GeneralChanged
