ENHANCEMENTS
  • Interactive SQL for JDBC (JDBCISQL) is now installed with the product. JDBCISQL is a command-line interface that supports connecting your driver to a data source, executing SQL statements and retrieving results in a terminal. This tool provides a method to quickly test your drivers in an environment that does not support GUIs.*
  • The driver has been enhanced to allow you to define custom authentication requests, including the new CustomAuthParams connection property. If your service does not support one of the standard authentication methods supported by the driver, you can modify the input REST file to define a custom authentication flow.*
  • The driver has been enhanced to allow you to customize how HTTP response status codes are processed by the driver. By configuring the input REST file, you can define error responses for codes that are returned by the service, including driver actions and error messages.*
  • The driver has been enhanced to support OAuth 2.0 authentication.*
  • The driver has been enhanced to support requests for endpoints that use custom HTTP-headers.*
FEATURES
  • Supports SQL read-only access to REST API endpoints returning JSON payloads 
  • Supports JDBC core functions
  • Supports standard JSON data types and additional data types through data type inference
  • Supports using internal memory or a configurable REST file to define REST responses and relational mapping 
  • Heuristically maps data types, eliminating the need to define native data types in most scenarios 
  • Supports basic, HTTP-header based, URL-Parameter based and no authentication 
  • Supports the handling of large result sets with configurable paging and the FetchSize and WSFetchSize connection properties
