Hi @ManuelEspitia ,

When connecting to a MariaDB database, you have several options for connectors based on your specific use case. Let’s explore a few of them:

     1.MariaDB Connector/C: This is a high-performance client library with advanced functions, bulk operations, asynchronous/non-blocking APIs, and multiple options for encrypted connections via TLS/SSL. It’s suitable for applications that require efficient data access and streaming. The LGPL-licensed MariaDB Connector/C is commonly used for C/C++ development
     2.MariaDB Connector/Python: If you’re working with Python, this connector allows you to connect your Python applications to MariaDB and MySQL databases using the standard JDBC API. It’s a great choice for Python developers
     3.MariaDB Connector/J: Specifically designed for Java applications, MariaDB Connector/J provides JDBC connectivity to MariaDB and MySQL databases. It’s LGPL-licensed and widely used by Java developers
     4.MariaDB Connector/ODBC: If you’re using ODBC (Open Database Connectivity), this connector enables you to connect to MariaDB databases from various ODBC-compliant applications and tools
