    • Product Compatibility Guide: Provides the latest data source and platform support information. 
    • Fixes: Describes the issues resolved since general availability.  

    Version 6.0.1

    • The driver has been enhanced to support SAP BW/4HANA and other SAP ODATA V2 services exposed through the SAP Gateway. Refer to Supported SQL statements and extensions for details.
    • The driver has been enhanced to support CDS views that require parameters. Refer to CDS views for details.
    • The driver has been enhanced to support HTTP Header authentication for use with the S/4HANA sandbox hosted at Refer to HTTP header authentication (S/4HANA only).
    • The driver has been enhanced to support a default value of 100000 and maximum value of 1000000 for the connection property WSFetchSize. Refer to WSFetchSize for details.
    • The driver has been enhanced to set the maximum size of VARCHAR columns within the result set metadata using the MaxVarcharSize connection property. Refer to MaxVarcharSize for details.
    • The driver has been enhanced to use proxy server settings defined in the JVM system properties by default. If no proxy settings are defined in the connection string or data source, the driver will attempt to use the values of the http.proxyHost and http.proxyPort JVM system properties to connect to the database.
    Changed Behavior
    • The installer program now requires you to install a JRE that is Java SE 11 or higher before running the installer. In earlier versions, the JRE used by the installer program was included in the product. However, to avoid potential security vulnerabilities, the installer program no longer includes a JRE. Instead, the installer program uses the JRE in your environment to allow for the most secure version of a JRE to be used.*
      Note: This change does not affect the JVM requirements for the driver. For the latest driver requirements, refer to the Product Compatibility Guide.
      Available: July 3, 2024
    • The HostName connection property has been renamed ServerName. To support existing configurations, HostName will continue to be supported as an alias for ServerName. Refer to ServerName for details.
