Driver components

The driver contains four different components that you can choose to interact with the server nodes.

  • Core component: The core component is responsible for maintaining a pool of connections to the cluster and executes the statements based on client configuration.
  • Mapper component: The Mapper component handles the mapping of CQL table columns to fields in your classes.
  • Linq component: The Linq component of the driver is an implementation of Linq IQueryProvider and IQueryable<T> interfaces that allows you to write CQL queries in LINQ and read the results using your object model.
  • ADO.NET: Implementation of the ADO.NET interfaces and abstract classes common present in the System.Data namespace of the .NET Framework: IDbConnection, IDbCommand, and IDbDataAdapter.
