AWS released an open source Java (JDBC) driver to connect to Amazon Neptune. This makes it easy for customers to connect to Neptune with tools and libraries that support JDBC, such as popular Business Intelligence (BI) tools.

Amazon Neptune is a fast, reliable, fully managed graph database service that makes it easy to build and run applications that work with highly connected datasets. Customers have asked us for an easy way to connect Neptune to BI tools in order to visualize their data and better understand the results of their queries. Customers can now connect their graph database to these tools, such as Tableau, to visualize the results of their queries.

There are no additional costs to using a JDBC driver with Amazon Neptune, customers only pay for the Neptune resources they consume. Learn more about the driver here. To download the driver and get started, visit the JDBC driver’s GitHub project page. You can use the GitHub project to file issues, and open feature requests.
