DataStax drivers

Information on DataStax, JDBC, and ODBC drivers for open-source Apache Cassandra, DataStax Enterprise, and DataStax Astra DB.

Apache Cassandra®, DSE, and Astra DB drivers

To get started, see Developing applications with DataStax drivers. This guide contains information about best practices, connecting to clusters, submitting queries with drivers, and handling client and server errors.

Starting January 2020, you can use the same DataStax driver for Apache Cassandra® (OSS), DataStax Enterprise, and DataStax Astra DB. DataStax has unified the DSE and OSS drivers to avoid user confusion and enhance the OSS drivers with some of the features in the DSE drivers. For more information, see the Better Drivers for Cassandra blog.
  • DSE drivers are supported until January 1st, 2022. However, all new features and functionality will take place only in the unified DataStax drivers.
