What sets Zeppelin apart from other similar tools others is its Interpreter. The interpreter allows you to write code in any language for data processing, which can then be plugged in to Zeppelin. It has support for interpreters for Apache Spark, R, Hive, Shell, Cassandra and more. With the recent release of 0.6.0, Apache Zeppelin started supporting JDBC as its interpreter. What this means is that now you can use Progress JDBC drivers to connect to any Relational, SaaS/Cloud, Big Data and NoSQL data sources.
To get you started, we created an easy tutorial on how to use Apache Zeppelin with the Progress DataDirect Oracle Database JDBC driver. Note that you can use the similar process with any of our JDBC drivers.
java -jar PROGRESS_DATADIRECT_JDBC_ORACLE_ALL.jar
You can remove all the other properties by clicking the ‘X’ button under actions.
Save the interpreter with these settings and your interpreter will be created. The following is a screenshot on how the configured interpreter looks after saving:
