DataDirect jdbc driver for mongodb support balanced string

Then this idea stems from the fact that the customer wanted to connect to mongodb through our jdbc driver, however their mongodb team provided him with a balanced string with a replicaset parameter that allows you to replicate data on the affected hosts. So our jdbc driver driver can not only support a host and a port but the replicaset parameter must be explicit in the string. This improvement must take place as there are already other drivers on the market that support multiple hosts, multiple ports and the replicaset parameter can be specified.

  • Future consideration
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Customers and consequently also ibm will benefit from this idea
How should it work?

Currently, being core projects for the customer we had to suggest other drivers and not ours as it needed to go ahead with the project for this renewal of the importance that our driver supports that type of string as it spreads a lot.

Idea Priority Urgent
Priority Justification System test and production systems are currently not working and other drivers are being evaluated
Customer Name Intesa San Paolo

    The driver used in our component is the Datadirect JDBC Driver for MongoDB. The driver has this limitation and not our component. However we should propose Datadirect to implement this feature in their drivers at the earliest
