FAQ


Q: What is this module for?
A: This module uses the External Data Provider from Jahia, to retrieve data from a database via JDBC API. It was conceived as an example, since we found that there are few documentation about EDP on the web. We tried to make the module as simple as possible, so you can understand how it works and build one of your own. You can download the source code from our github repo: https://github.com/Jahia/jdbc-database-provider


Q:Where we can find another, more complex example?
A:Here is a list of other implementations using the EDP on the web:
