Driver Technologies

Industry-Leading Connectivity with Analytics, Reporting, ETL Tools, and Custom Apps.


Enable users to easily read, write, and update application, database, and WebAPI data through familiar database interfaces such as ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, Excel, BizTalk, and SSIS. Simply install the CData Drivers and access data through standard tables, views, and stored procedures - just like a traditional relational database.

The CData API Drivers provide a framework for building custom drivers for other databases, applications, and Web APIs. The API Drivers come packaged with several full-source, pre-built profiles for data access.





Driver Technology Features



  • Standards-Compliant ODBC: ODBC 3.8 compliant native protocol based drivers.
  • Unicode, 32-bit and 64-bit support: Support 32-bit and 64-bit applications and unicode ODBC APIs.
  • Cross-platform ODBC: Available for Microsoft Windows, Unix, and Mac (macOS / OS X) platforms.
  • Certified Compatibility*: Our drivers undergo extensive testing and are certified to be compatible with leading analytics and reporting applications like Tableau, Microsoft Excel, and many more.
    * Please visit our knowledge base to access how-to articles.
  • ODBC Remoting: Our exclusive remoting feature allows hosting the ODBC connection on a server to enable connections from various clients on any platform (Java, .NET, C++, PHP, Python, etc.), using any standards based technology (ODBC, JDBC, etc.). ODBC Remoting is enabled using the popular MySQL wire protocol server.
  • Replication and Caching: Our replication and caching commands make it easy to copy data to local and cloud data stores such as Oracle, SQL Server, Google Cloud SQL, etc. The replication commands include many features that allow for intelligent incremental updates to cached data.
  • String, Date, Numeric SQL Functions: The driver includes a library of 50 plus functions that can manipulate column values into the desired result. Popular examples include Regex, JSON, and XML processing functions.
  • Collaborative Query Processing: Our drivers enhance the data source's capabilities by additional client-side processing, when needed, to enable analytic summaries of data such as SUM, AVG, MAX, MIN, etc.
  • Easily Customizable and Configurable: The data model exposed by our ODBC Drivers can easily be customized to add or remove tables/columns, change data types, etc. without requiring a new build. These customizations are supported at runtime using human-readable schema files that are easy to edit.
  • Secure Connectivity: Includes standard Enterprise-class security features such as TLS/ SSL data encryption for all client-server communications.

  • Pure Java Type 4/5* Drivers: 100% Java architecture based drivers that implement the native protocol without reliance on client-side libraries.
    * Our drivers fit the definition of Type 5 drivers; however, there are only 4 official JDBC Driver types.
  • All-in-One Deployment: Single JAR that supports JDBC 3.0 and JDBC 4.0 specification and JVM versions 1.5 and above.
  • Certified Compatibility*: Our drivers undergo extensive testing and are certified to be compatible with leading analytics and reporting applications like SAP Crystal Reports, Pentaho, Business Objects, Crystal Reports and many more.
    * Please visit our knowledge base to access how-to articles.
