  • The driver has been enhanced to support all the data consistency levels for read and write operations that are supported by Apache Cassandra data stores. Data consistency levels are configured using the Read Consistency and Write Consistency connection options. Refer to the user's guide and reference for descriptions of these options.*
Changed Behavior
  • The following Windows platforms have reached the end of their product lifecycle and are no longer supported by the driver*:
    • Windows 8.0 (versions 8.1 and higher are still supported)

    • Windows XP (all versions)
    • Windows Server 2003 (all versions)
  • Supports SQL read-write access to Apache Cassandra data sources.
  • Supports CQL Binary Protocol.
  • The driver supports the core SQL-92 grammar.
  • The driver supports all ODBC Core functions and some Level 1 and Level 2 features.
  • Supports user id and password authentication.
  • Supports Cassandra data types, including the complex types Tuple, user-defined types, Map, List and Set.

  • Supports Native and Refresh escape sequences to embed CQL commands in SQL-92 statements.
  • Supports Cassandra's tunable consistency functionality with the ReadConsistency and WriteConsistency connection options. 
  • Supports the handling of large result sets through the FetchSize, NativeFetchSize, and ResultMemorySize connection options.
  • Supports applications that do not support unbounded data types through the ASCIISize, DecimalPrecision, DecimalScale, VarintPrecision, and VarcharSize connection options.
