Find out the version of your JDBC driver

If you have issues with your Data Warehouse connection, GoodData Customer Support may ask you to provide the version number of the JDBC driver that you are using.

You cannot use a Vertica JDBC driver for Data Warehouse. You must use the Data Warehouse driver provided by GoodData.

You can acquire the Data Warehouse driver version in the following ways:

  • An updated version of CloudConnect Designer always contains the latest version of the Data Warehouse driver. CloudConnect enables automatic updates of the application.
  • If you have downloaded the driver from the Developer Portal, locate the driver version through one of the following methods:
    • When the ZIP file is unzipped, the driver version number is embedded in the filename.
    • If you no longer have the ZIP file, the version number can be retrieved through standard method calls on the Data Warehouse driver.

      Driver.getMajorVersion() & Driver.getMinorVersion()
      DatabaseMetaData.getDriverMinorVersion() & DatabaseMetaData.getDriverMajorVersion()
      DatabaseMetaData.getDriverVersion()

Find out the end-of-life date of your driver version

We guarantee support for any version of the JDBC driver for six months after the release date of the next driver version. We may prolong support for any driver beyond this six month period but do not guarantee it in any way.

After we drop support of a version, the driver of this version stops working, and you start receiving the following error message:

You are using an unsupported version of the JDBC driver. Download
and install the latest version of the driver itself or CloudConnect
from https://developer.gooddata.com/tools.

Example:

Version 1.0.0 was released on May 15, 2016.
The next version, 2.0.0, was released on July 20, 2016.
We guarantee support for version 1.0.0 for six months from the release date of version 2.0.0. This means that version 1.0.0 will continue working at least until January 20, 2017.

We recommend that you always keep your JDBC driver at the latest version available on the Download page.

The following table contains the end-of-life dates for the driver versions that are currently supported:

VersionEnd-of-life
2.9.0TBA
2.8.0 - 2.8.1

February 13, 2017
If you are still using these versions, we strongly recommend that you upgrade to the latest version.

The versions that are not present in the table are no longer supported.
