Update: The Beta versions of the ODBC and JDBC connectivity solutions are now available: http://www.simba.com/couchbase/couchbase-odbc-jdbc-connectivity-solutions-beta-now-available
For the past few months, Simba has been working with Couchbase, Inc. to jointly deliver ODBC and JDBC connectivity solutions for Couchbase Server. In conjunction with Couchbase’s Developer Preview release of Couchbase Server 4.0, we’re happy to announce that the Developer Preview versions of the connectivity solutions are now available for free download.
Simba’s SQL-92 engine (available as part of SimbaEngine SDK) brings full SQL-92 support to Couchbase and complements Couchbase’s own SQL-like query language, SQL for Documents (codename N1QL). When applicable, the connectivity solutions also leverage Couchbase’s N1QL query engine for execution by pushing down SQL query processing. It does this by translating from SQL to N1QL.
Since the connectivity solutions are built using SimbaEngine SDK, ODBC 3.8 and JDBC 4.0 and 4.1 support are provided. This allows popular BI tools, such as Tableau®, Excel®, and SAP BusinessObjects Lumira™ to connect to Couchbase Server.
