JDBC Driver for SFTP

Build 21.0.7930

CData JDBC Driver for SFTP

Overview

The CData JDBC Driver for SFTP offers the most natural way to connect to SFTP data from Java-based applications and developer technologies. The driver wraps the complexity of accessing SFTP data in an easy-to-integrate, 100%-Java JDBC driver. Applications can then access SFTP 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.

Key Features

  • Deploy a single JAR that does not rely on client-side libraries.
  • Write SQL to retrieve and update SFTP data.
  • Compliant with JDBC 3.0 and JDBC 4.0.
  • Codeless integration with popular BI, reporting, and ETL tools.
  • Collaborative query processing.

Getting Started

See Getting Started for A-Z guides on authenticating and connecting to SFTP data. See the SFTP integration guides for information on connecting from other applications.

Advanced Features

Advanced Features details additional features supported by the driver, such as defining user defined views, 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 SFTP data. Using from Tools walks through the steps of integration with JDBC tools, using several popular database tools as examples.

Schema Discovery

See Schema Discovery to access schema information through the standard JDBC interfaces. Query the System Tables to access additional metadata, such as data source capabilities.

JDBC Remoting

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.

SQL Compliance

See SQL Compliance for a syntax reference and code examples outlining the supported SQL.

Data Model

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.
