The Coralogix JDBC driver allows you to investigate your log data with your favorite database tool using SQL queries.

JDBC, which stands for Java Database Connectivity, is a common standard for database drivers, and many popular querying tools support it. With the Coralogix JDBC driver, you can quickly get started on performing SQL queries against the data already stored in your Coralogix account.

This tutorial provides instructions on using the Coralogix JDBC driver with Tableau.
