Java driver for DataStax Enterprise

This driver is built on top of the DataStax driver for Apache Cassandra, with specific extensions for DSE:

Note: since this driver is designed as a complimentary wrapper of the DataStax core driver for Apache Cassandra, a lot of underlying concepts in this driver are the same, and to keep this documentation focused we will be linking to the relevant section of the core manual where necessary.

The Java DataStax Enterprise Driver can be used solely with DataStax Enterprise. Please consult the license.
