connect client

Using the JDBC GemFire XD thin client driver, connects to a GemFire XD member indicated by the host:port values.

Syntax

CONNECT CLIENT 'host:port[;property=value]*' [ AS connectionName ]

Description

Uses the JDBC GemFire XD thin client driver to connect to a GemFire XD member indicated by the host:port values. You can specify an optional name for your connection. Use the set connection to switch between multiple connections. If you do not name a connection, the system generates a name automatically.

If the connection requires a user name and password, supply those with the optional properties.

If the connect succeeds, the connection becomes the current one and gfxd displays a new prompt for the next command to be entered. If you have more than one open connection, the name of the connection appears in the prompt.

All further commands are processed against the new, current connection.

Example

gfxd version 10.4
gfxd> connect client 'localhost:1527' as clientConnection;
gfxd> show connections;
CLIENTCONNECTION* -     jdbc:gemfirexd://localhost:1527/
* = current connection
