-----------------------

We are always adding new features to the Teradata JDBC Driver, and
fixing issues that might affect your application.

If you obtained this release of the Teradata JDBC Driver from
physical media, please check whether a newer version is available
on the http://www.teradata.com Teradata Download Center in the
Teradata JDBC Driver section.

System Requirements
-------------------

This release of the Teradata JDBC Driver requires JDK/JRE 1.4, 5.0, or 6.0.

Note that IBM WebSphere Application Server 5.0 is not supported, because
WebSphere 5.0 uses JDK 1.3.1.

This release of the Teradata JDBC Driver supports Teradata Database V2R6.0,
V2R6.1, V2R6.2, 12.0, and 13.0.

What's New
----------

- New Teradata JDBC Driver class names are available.
- For JDBC URL connections: com.teradata.jdbc.TeraDriver
- For WebSphere Data Sources: com.teradata.jdbc.TeraConnectionPoolDataSource
The old class names will continue to work; however, a warning message
will be printed as a reminder to switch over to the new class names.
Please change your applications and data source definitions at your
earliest convenience, because the old class names will only be supported
for a limited number of future releases.

- Remove tdgssjava.jar from your classpath. The tdgssjava.jar file is no
longer required by the Teradata JDBC Driver; the classes formerly in
tdgssjava.jar now reside in terajdbc4.jar. This reduces the number of jar
files from three to two, and simplifies deployment and maintenance.

- Teradata Database 13.0 supports Java User-Defined Functions (UDFs).

- With Teradata Database 13.0, Java Stored Procedures may now return dynamic
result sets.

- The Teradata JDBC Driver now provides login timeout functionality using the
value set with DriverManager setLoginTimeout or DataSource setLoginTimeout.

- The Teradata JDBC Driver now provides FastExport support. Setting the TYPE
connection parameter to FASTEXPORT instructs the JDBC Driver to use the
Teradata FastExport protocol for PreparedStatement SELECTs that are
compatible with FastExport.

- The Teradata JDBC Driver's JDBC FastLoad feature was changed to provide
additional validation of PreparedStatement parameter values, in order to
reduce the occurrence of rows placed into FastLoad error tables by the
Teradata Database.

- The Teradata JDBC Driver was changed to no longer require the TNANO and
TSNANO connection parameters for JDBC FastLoad. JDBC FastLoad now determines
the scale of TIME and TIMESTAMP destination columns and automatically sends
TIME and TIMESTAMP data values using the same scale. The TNANO and TSNANO
connection parameters are now ignored for JDBC FastLoad.

- The Teradata JDBC Driver now works with Teradata Database 12.0 and later to
provide more precise classification for DATE, TIME, and TIMESTAMP values bound
to PreparedStatement question-mark parameter markers, thereby enabling the
Teradata Database to provide better implicit data type conversion for those
data types.

- With Teradata Database 12.0 and later, the Teradata JDBC Driver now sends
java.sql.Date values to the Teradata Database as DATE values using the ANSIDate
DateForm. This provides Y2K-compliant implicit conversion for java.sql.Date
values that are specified with the PreparedStatement/CallableStatement setDate
or setObject methods, and sent to destination CHAR/VARCHAR columns and
parameters. A legacy application requiring non-Y2K-compliant behavior can use a
Teradata-specific Escape Syntax function to choose non-Y2K-compliant behavior.

- Support for Teradata Database 13.0 QueryBand PROXYUSER user impersonation,
enabling middle-tier applications to utilize connection pooling and also assert
end-user identities and roles for access-rights checking and auditing of queries.

Troubleshooting Topics
----------------------

TERAJDBC4 ERROR ... The com.ncr.teradata.TeraDriver class name is deprecated
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
New Teradata JDBC Driver class names are available.

- For JDBC URL connections: com.teradata.jdbc.TeraDriver
- For WebSphere Data Sources: com.teradata.jdbc.TeraConnectionPoolDataSource

The old class names will continue to work; however, a warning message
will be printed as a reminder to switch over to the new class names.

TERAJDBC4 ERROR ... The com.ncr.teradata.TeraDriver class name is deprecated.
Please use the com.teradata.jdbc.TeraDriver class name instead.

TERAJDBC4 ERROR ... The com.ncr.teradata.TeraConnectionPoolDataSource class name is deprecated.
Please use the com.teradata.jdbc.TeraConnectionPoolDataSource class name instead.

Solution:

Please change your applications and data source definitions at your
earliest convenience, because the old class names will only be supported
for a limited number of future releases.

Error 2665, 2673, or 3944 when using PreparedStatement setDate
--------------------------------------------------------------
After upgrading to this release of the Teradata JDBC Driver, you may
encounter one of the following Teradata Database errors when using the
PreparedStatement setDate method with Teradata Database releases between
TD 12.0.0.0 and TD 12.0.1.1:

Teradata Database Error 2665 Invalid Date.
Teradata Database Error 2673 The source parcel length does not match data that was defined.
Teradata Database Error 3944 Data length is invalid for the data type.

Solution:

If using Teradata Database releases between TD 12.0.0.0 and TD 12.0.1.1,
then upgrade to Teradata Database 12.0.1.2 or later, in order to obtain
the fix for DBS DR 119554.

Incorrect values from getColumnDisplaySize for CLOB columns
-----------------------------------------------------------
When using Teradata Database releases V2R06.00.02.00 through V2R06.00.02.07
or Teradata Database releases V2R06.01.00.00 through V2R06.01.00.08, you may
encounter the problem described by DBS DR 100397 ("PrepInfoX returns
incorrect Length for CLOB columns"), which may cause incorrect values to be
returned for CLOB columns from ResultSetMetaData.getColumnDisplaySize.

Solution:

If using Teradata Database releases V2R06.00.02.00 through V2R06.00.02.07,
then upgrade to release V2R06.00.02.08 or later, which contains the fix
for DR 100397.

If using Teradata Database releases V2R06.01.00.00 through V2R06.01.00.08,
then upgrade to release V2R06.01.00.09 or later, which contains the fix
for DR 100397.

Unable to connect to database when using HPUX 11.23 JDK 5.0
-----------------------------------------------------------

When attempting to connect to the Teradata Database when HPUX 11.23 JDK 5.0,
you may receive an exception similar to: TeraEncrypt: Error
tdgss-stack-trace-begin>>> GSSException: Failure unspecified at GSS-API
level (Mechanism level: Failure during key generation by algorithm layer.)

This is a known problem with HPUX 11.23 JDK 5.0. HP's web site states
the following:

SecureRandom engine implementation (11i HP Integrity and HP9000 PA-RISC)

Beginning with 5.0, Sun Microsystems' SecureRandom engine implementation
supports a new algorithm, NativePRNG, in addition to SHA1PRNG. NativePRNG
will only be available if /dev/random and /dev/urandom are installed in
your system. Because HP-UX does not support seeding entropy generating
devices such as /dev/random, applications that rely on this will not be
able to use NativePRNG. An attempt to seed the device will cause an
exception. This defect is expected to be fixed in a future release.

Solution:

No solution is available for this issue at the present time.

Modifying SQL Statements
------------------------

In the Teradata JDBC Driver, version 3.1 and earlier releases, the Teradata
JDBC driver modified the SQL statement text of PreparedStatements, replacing
all occurrences of "?" with "IS NULL" whenever the application called setNull()
for the "?" in a WHERE clause. For example, if the SQL statement was:

select * from table1 where colid = ?

and the application called setNull(1), then the Teradata JDBC driver would
change the SQL statement to:

select * from table1 where colid IS NULL

This was an incorrect procedure to use. The problem was fixed in the Teradata
JDBC Driver version 3.2, but the fix could change the output of some applications.

Solution:

Refer to the Teradata JDBC Driver User Guide for details on how to change
the application to work correctly with the Teradata JDBC Driver.

Calling Stored Procedures
-------------------------

In the Teradata JDBC Driver, version 3.1 and earlier releases, the Teradata
JDBC driver permitted stored procedures to be called using the PreparedStatement
interface, and the stored procedure's INOUT and OUT parameter output values
were returned as a single-row result set from the executeQuery method.

Note that the JDBC standard only supports calling stored procedures using the
CallableStatement interface. Also, because stored procedures do not return a
result set, only the execute and executeUpdate methods are supported for calling
a stored procedure. The JDBC 3.0 specification requires a JDBC driver to throw
a SQLException from executeQuery when that method is used to execute a SQL
statement that does not return a result set.

The Teradata JDBC Driver is evolving towards full compliance with that JDBC 3.0
specification requirement:

- This release of the Teradata JDBC Driver no longer returns a stored
procedure's INOUT and OUT parameter output values as a single-row result
set from the PreparedStatement.executeQuery method. Instead, an empty result
set is returned.

- A future release of the Teradata JDBC Driver will throw a SQLException from
executeQuery when that method is used to execute a SQL statement that does
not return a result set, such as a SQL CALL statement.

Applications using the PreparedStatement interface to call a stored procedure
may encounter the difference in behavior.

Solution:

Modify the application to call stored procedures by using the CallableStatement
interface, and either the execute or executeUpdate methods.

According to the JDBC standard, the proper sequence for calling a stored
procedure is as follows:
- Use Escape Syntax curly braces: {call storedproc(arg1, arg2, arg3)}
- Call Connection.prepareCall to use the CallableStatement interface.
- Prior to executing the statement, bind all input values for IN and INOUT
parameters using the CallableStatement setter methods setInt, setString, etc.
- Prior to executing the statement, register all stored procedure INOUT and OUT
parameters with the CallableStatement.registerOutParameter method.
- Use either the CallableStatement.execute or CallableStatement.executeUpdate
method to execute the SQL CALL statement.
- After executing the statement, use the CallableStatement getter methods such
as getInt, getString, etc. to obtain the stored procedure's INOUT and OUT
parameter output values.

Installation
------------

This release of the Teradata JDBC Driver is distributed as platform-independent
jar files. For downloading convenience, the platform-independent jar files are
bundled together and provided in both zip format and tar format.

TeraJDBC__indep_indep.13.00.00.06.zip and TeraJDBC__indep_indep.13.00.00.06.tar
both contain the same set of platform-independent files:

readme.txt - this file
terajdbc4.jar - the Teradata JDBC Driver
tdgssconfig.jar - the Teradata security configuration

Download either the zip file or the tar file, and unzip (or untar) the downloaded
file into a directory of your choice, and then set your classpath to refer to the
necessary jar files.

Your classpath must include:

terajdbc4.jar
tdgssconfig.jar

Your classpath must NOT include any jar files from any previous releases of
the Teradata JDBC Driver. It is recommended, but not required, that any
previous release of the Teradata JDBC Driver be uninstalled prior to
downloading and using this release of the Teradata JDBC Driver.

For systems running only Java applications that use the Teradata JDBC Driver,
the tdgssconfig.jar file replaces the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file from the
previous release of the Teradata JDBC Driver. If the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml
file has not been customized for the site, then the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml
file is no longer needed and can be removed.

For systems running both C/C++ and Java applications that access the Teradata
Database, it is possible to share the TeraGSS security configuration. This is
appropriate if the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file has been customized for the
site. To enable sharing, the Java classpath should include the TeraGSS
directory that contains the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file, and the classpath
should not include the tdgssconfig.jar file.

Documentation
-------------

The Teradata JDBC Driver User Guide Release 13.00.00 is available online
at http://www.info.teradata.com/

Navigate to "Teradata Data Warehousing", then "Teradata Tools and Utilities",
then "Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)", and select the User Guide release
13.00.00, which corresponds to this release of the Teradata JDBC Driver.

Documentation for how to use the Teradata JDBC Driver with supported application
servers is available on the http://www.teradata.com Teradata Download Center in
the Teradata JDBC Driver section.

Re: Teradata JDBC Driver 13.0.0.6

Hi all,

I've got a question regarding using Teradata JDBC driver (release 12) with Oracle Data Integrator. My purpose is to extract number of rows inserted, updated, deleted in a SQL multistatement Knowledge module. Has anyone information about which functions I can used for that purpose.

Regards,
Enthusiast
