Supported Client Applications

Users can connect to HAWQ using various client applications:

  • A number of HAWQ Client Applications are provided with your HAWQ installation. The psql client application provides an interactive command-line interface to HAWQ.
  • Using standard Database Application Interfaces, such as ODBC and JDBC, users can create their own client applications that interface to HAWQ. Because HAWQ is based on PostgreSQL, it uses the standard PostgreSQL database drivers.
