JDBC Connection String
Do More with Your JDBC Connection String
In JDBC data access environments, the JDBC connection string is often used merely as a way to identify the target data source and submit user credentials. With JDBC middleware from Progress DataDirect, the JDBC connection string can be a whole lot more than that. With DataDirect JDBC drivers, the JDBC connection string is an easy inroad to valuable enterprise functionality built into the driver.
JDBC Connection String Options with DataDirect Drivers
DataDirect's JDBC drivers benefit developers and administrators by embedding enterprise application functionality directly into the driver and enabling codeless configuration of that functionality. In many cases key features can be easily controlled through the use of JDBC connection string properties.
Here a just some of the features that DataDirect enables Java JDBC developers to control through JDBC connection string properties:
- Connection timeout and retry behavior
- Statement pooling
- Bulk loading
- Data encryption
- Load balancing
- Application failover
With functionality like this built into the driver and easily controlled via the JDBC connection string, you can save precious time on application development and testing. And in addition to providing these universal enterprise application features, DataDirect drivers can also leverage database-specific features, such as utilizing the tnsnames.ora file for controlling certain aspects of a JDBC Oracle connection.
DataDirect Performance and Reliability
DataDirect JDBC drivers do more than putting powerful driver-implemented functionality just a JDBC connection string attribute away. With DataDirect JDBC drivers you get:
- The best SQL performance of any JDBC driver available, as proven by comprehensive benchmarking tests measuring throughput as well as system resource utilization efficiency.
- Rock-solid reliability, the result of our two decades of specializing in data connectivity technologies and a quality testing regimen that's the most rigorous in the industry.
- Outstanding support, from our staff of data connectivity support specialists and from a wealth of online resources including a tutorial JDBC topic series.
With DataDirect it's also easy to give a JDBC driver a test run in your own environment. You can do a JDBC Oracle download from our download center, or download a JDBC for SQL Server driver or a JDBC driver for any other major database, and give it a 15 day trial at no cost.
