Where can I use the SAP HANA JDBC Driver?


Full-featured and consistent SQL access to any supported data source through JDBC

  • 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.

  • Metadata Discovery

    Full support for JDBC DatabaseMetaData provides extensive schema discovery capabilities. Explore tables, columns, keys, and other data constructs based on user identity.

  • Developer Friendly

    Design-time support for all major Java IDEs, including Eclipse, IntelliJ, and NetBeans.

  • JDBC Remoting

    Our exclusive remoting feature allows hosting the JDBC connection on a server to enable connections from various clients on any platform (Java, .NET, C++, PHP, Python), using any standards-based technology (ODBC, JDBC, etc.). JDBC 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 over 50 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 JDBC 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.

JDBC Driver Performance

With traditional approaches to remote access, performance bottlenecks can spell disaster for applications. Regardless if an application is created for internal use, a commercial project, web, or mobile application, slow performance can rapidly lead to project failure. Accessing data from any remote source has the potential to create these problems. Common issues include:

  1. Network Connections - Slow network connections and latency issues are common in mobile applications.
  2. Service Delays - Delays due to service interruptions, resulting in server hardware or software updates.
  3. Large Data - Intentional or unintentional requests for large amounts of data.
  4. Disconnects - Complete loss of network connectivity.

The CData JDBC Driver for SAP HANA solves many of these issues with support for replication queries that can be used to sync data to local databases, greatly improving the performance and dramatically reduce application bottlenecks.

More information about JDBC Driver performance capabilities are available in the included documentation.

Enterprise-Class Remoting

MySQL/SQL Database entry points for SAP HANA Data

The CData JDBC drivers include powerful fully-integrated remoting capabilities that makes SAP HANA data accessible from virtually anywhere. The drivers include the optional ability to accept incoming SQL and MySQL client connections and service standard database requests.

With the CData JDBC drivers, users can interact with SAP HANA data from any client that supports SQL Server or MySQL: from web & mobile applications, to CRM and CMS systems, BI tools like SQL Server Analysis Services, and even through popular management applications like MySQL Workbench.

  • Access SAP HANA data from virtually any application that can access external data. Applications that can access SQL Server or MySQL data can now connect to SAP HANA with this driver.
  • Connect SAP HANA data with popular BI tools like SQL Server Analysis Services.
  • Enable enterprise SAP HANA data integration through SQL Linked Server connectivity
  • Includes support for the MySQL and SQL (TDS) remote access protocols - industry standards for remote database connectivity.
  • Offers advanced wire-protocol SSL security for remote connectivity

Enterprise-class JDBC Connectivity

The SAP HANA JDBC Driver offers the most natural way to access SAP HANA data from any Java/J2EE application. Simply use the SAP HANA Driver to connect and access data just as you would access any traditional database. The driver is completely self-contained - no additional software installation is required!

SAP HANA Integration

The SAP HANA Driver has the same JDBC architecture as the JDBC drivers for MySQL and OLEDB, including Connection, Statement and ResultSet objects. Because of this you can now access SAP HANA data in an easy, familiar way. You can use the SAP HANA Driver through popular IDEs (Eclipse, IntelliJ, NetBeans, etc.), in code through familiar classes, and in data controls available through Swing, Eclipse SWT Widgets, etc.

For example:

Connection conn =

boolean ret = stat.execute("SELECT * FROM SAPHANA");
ResultSet rs=stat.getResultSet();
  for(int i=1;i<=rs.getMetaData().getColumnCount();i++)
    System.out.println(rs.getMetaData().getColumnName(i) +"="+rs.getString(i));

More Than Read-Only: Full Update/CRUD Support

SAP HANA Driver goes beyond read-only functionality to deliver full support for Create, Read Update, and Delete operations (CRUD). Your end-users can interact with the data presented by the SAP HANA Driver as easily as interacting with a database table.

Connection conn =

String query = "UPDATE SAPHANA SET Where= ...";

PreparedStatement pstmt = conn.prepareStatement(query);
pstmt.setString(1, "Location");
pstmt.setString(2, "UID");
int count=pstmt.getUpdateCount();
