The topics describes the JDBC connector, drivers, and configuration parameters.
The JDBC connector allows you to import data from any relational database with a JDBC driver into MapR Streams or Kafka topics. By using JDBC, this connector can support a wide variety of databases without requiring custom code for each one.
The JDBC connector provides flexibility regarding which databases you can import data from and how that data is imported. JDBC connector implements the data copying functionality on the generic JDBC APIs, and relies on JDBC drivers to handle the database-specific implementation of those APIs.
