Table 4-18 Valid Values for jdbc.native-connection

Value Description


Require native connection.


(Default) Do not require native connection.


This may be required for some queries on some server platforms that have DataSource implementations that wrap the JDBC connection in their own proxy. If the query requires custom JDBC access, it may require a native connection.

A ServerPlatform is required to be set as a persistence property to be able to use a native connection. For features that EclipseLink already knows require a native connection, eclipselink.jdbc.native-connection will default to true.


Example 4-37 Using jdbc.native-connection in a JPA Query

import org.eclipse.persistence.config.HintValues;
 import org.eclipse.persistence.config.QueryHints;
 query.setHint("eclipselink.NATIVE_CONNECTION", "TRUE");
