2.3. JDBC Driver

2.3. JDBC Driver

Presto can be accessed from Java using the JDBC driver. Download presto-jdbc-0.244.jar and add it to the class path of your Java application.

The driver is also available from Maven Central:



The following JDBC URL formats are supported:


For example, use the following URL to connect to Presto running on port 8080 with the catalog hive and the schema sales:


The above URL can be used as follows to create a connection:

String url = "jdbc:presto://";
Connection connection = DriverManager.getConnection(url, "test", null);

Connection Parameters

The driver supports various parameters that may be set as URL parameters or as properties passed to DriverManager. Both of the following examples are equivalent:

// URL parameters
String url = "jdbc:presto://";
Properties properties = new Properties();
properties.setProperty("user", "test");
properties.setProperty("password", "secret");
properties.setProperty("SSL", "true");
Connection connection = DriverManager.getConnection(url, properties);

// properties
String url = "jdbc:presto://";
Connection connection = DriverManager.getConnection(url);

These methods may be mixed; some parameters may be specified in the URL while others are specified using properties. However, the same parameter may not be specified using both methods.
