Project description

The primary purpose of this dialect is to provide JDBC connection using provided driver(JAR).


Installing the dialect is straightforward:

from sqlalchemy import create_engine
create_engine('jdbcapi+pgjdbc://{}:{}@{}/{}'.format(username, password, <ip:host>', <database name>))
