timbr FAQs

How do external tools connect to timbr? Are providing any additional drivers (like JDBC) required in order to connect using different IDEs or custom applications? 

timbr supports both JDBC and ODBC. We reuse the thrift-server protocol of Apache Hive and Spark. This means you can connect to timbr’s Knowledge Graph using Hive/Spark JDBC/ODBC drivers (in most BI tools they already come embedded, so no installation needed).
