Hazelcast JDBC Driver

Hazelcast JDBC Driver allows Java applications to connect to Hazelcast using the standard JDBC API.

Supported Hazelcast version


The version of the driver must be the same as the Hazelcast IMDG version you're connecting to (e.g. hazelcast-jdbc:4.2 is compatible to hazelcast:4.2). In the future we plan to support broader client compatibility.


The JDBC Driver of version 4.2 supports Hazelcast Jet 4.5 (to be released soon).

Download the Driver

You can download the JDBC Driver using preferred dependency management tool:

Maven Central

Stable version:


Snapshot version:

To download the latest snapshot build (built from the main branch) you need to add the snapshot repository:

    <name>Maven2 Snapshot Repository</name>

And the dependency:



The implementation class of java.sql.Driver is com.hazelcast.jdbc.Driver and it's registered automatically.

Connection URL

The format of the URL must have the following structure, parts in [] are optional:



  • jdbc:hazelcast:: (Required) is a sub-protocol and is a constant.
  • host: (Required) server address (or addresses separated with comma) to connect to, or the cluster name if the server is Hazelcast Cloud
  • port: (Optional) Server port. Defaults to 5701.
  • propertyN: (Optional) List of connection properties in the key-value form.

Connection properties

The following list contains the properties supported by the Hazelcast JDBC Driver.

Common properties

Property Type Description
user String Hazelcast cluster username
password String Hazelcast cluster password
clusterName String Hazelcast cluster name
discoveryToken String Hazelcast Cloud discovery token

SSL properties

Property Type Description
sslEnabled Boolean Enable SSL for client connection
trustStore String Path to truststore file. Alias for trustCertCollectionFile
trustCertCollectionFile String Path to truststore file. Alias for trustStore
trustStorePassword String Password to unlock the truststore file
protocol String Name of the algorithm which is used in your TLS/SSL; default to TLS
keyStore String Path to your keystore file
keyStorePassword String Password to access the key from your keystore file
keyCertChainFile String Path to an X.509 certificate chain file in PEM format
factoryClassName String Fully qualified class name for the implementation of SSLContextFactory

GCP properties

Property Type Description
gcpPrivateKeyPath String A filesystem path to the private key for GCP service account in the JSON format; if not set, the access token is fetched from the GCP VM instance
gcpHzPort String A range of ports where the plugin looks for Hazelcast members; if not set, the default value 5701-5708 is used
gcpProjects String A list of projects where the plugin looks for instances; if not set, the current project is used
gcpRegion String A region where the plugin looks for instances; if not set, the zones property is used; if it and zones property not set, all zones of the current region are used
gcpLabel String A filter to look only for instances labeled as specified; property format: key=value
gcpUsePublicIp Boolean Use public IP Address

AWS properties

Property Type Description
awsAccessKey String Access key of your AWS account; if not set, iam-role is used
awsSecretKey String Secret key of your AWS account; if not set, iam-role is used
awsIamRole String IAM Role attached to EC2 instance used to fetch credentials (if awsAccessKey/awsSecretKey not specified); if not set, default IAM Role attached to EC2 instance is used
awsTagKey/awsTagValue String Filter to look only for EC2 Instances with the given key/value; multi values supported if comma-separated (e.g. KeyA,KeyB); comma-separated values behaves as AND conditions
awsRegion String Region where Hazelcast members are running; default is the current region
awsHostHeader String ec2, ecs, or the URL of a EC2/ECS API endpoint; automatically detected by default
awsSecurityGroupName String Filter to look only for EC2 instances with the given security group
awsConnectionTimeoutSeconds Integer Connection timeout when making a call to AWS API; default to 10
awsReadTimeoutSeconds Integer Read timeout when making a call to AWS API; default to 10
awsConnectionRetries Integer Number of retries while connecting to AWS API; default to 3
awsHzPort String A range of ports where the plugin looks for Hazelcast members; default is 5701-5708
awsUsePublicIp Boolean Use public IP Address

Azure properties

Property Type Description
azureInstanceMetadataAvailable Boolean This property must be configured as false in order to be able to use the Azure properties. It is true by default.
azureClientId String Azure Active Directory Service Principal client ID
azureClientSecret String Azure Active Directory Service Principal client secret
azureTenantId String Azure Active Directory tenant ID
azureSubscriptionId String Azure subscription ID
azureResourceGroup String Name of Azure resource group which the Hazelcast instance is running in
azureScaleSet String name of Azure VM scale set. If this setting is configured, the plugin will search for instances over the resources only within this scale set
azureUsePublicIp Boolean Use public IP Address

Kubernetes properties

Property Type Description
k8sServiceDns String Service DNS, usually in the form of SERVICE-NAME.NAMESPACE.svc.cluster.local
k8sServiceDnsTimeout Integer Custom time for how long the DNS lookup is valid
k8sNamespace String Kubernetes namespace where Hazelcast is running
k8sServiceName String Service name used to scan only PODs connected to the given service; if not specified, then all PODs in the namespace are checked
k8sServicePort Integer Endpoint port of the service; if specified with a value greater than 0, it overrides the default; 0 by default

Hazelcast Cloud Configuration

For connecting to the Hazelcast cloud you only need to specify discoveryToken property and use the cluster-name as a host in the URL: jdbc:hazelcast://<cluster-name>/?discoveryToken=<yourDiscoveryToken>.

Additional Configuration

Besides URL, it is possible to use Hazelcast Declarative Configuration and Overriding Configuration to configure Hazelcast Java Client


The supported SQL syntax description can be found in IMDG SQL docs. Hazelcast Jet 4.5 that supports the JDBC driver will be released soon. You can take a look at its SQL capabilities in the Jet SQL documentation.
