JDBC stands for JAVA Database Connectivity and is a Java standard protocol for connecting to databases. UI Bakery allows you to connect to data sources that don't have native support on the platform, but have a JDBC driver.
The cloud self-service plans of UI Bakery currently only support the following data sources: Exasol, Presto, and SAP Hana. Connecting to other data sources is available on the Enterprise plan (self-hosted or managed).

You will need to have a JDBC connection string like:
You can also supply different connection properties that driver supports using the query parameters.
Enter the driver class name, user name, password, and click Connect Datasource button:
