Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) is a scalable, highly durable, and fully managed database service for operating mission-critical MongoDB workloads.

SQL is the de facto standard for data and analytics and one of the most popular languages among data engineers and data analysts. The Amazon DocumentDB JDBC driver provides a SQL interface that allows SQL-based tools to easily access JSON data stored in Amazon DocumentDB. With the Amazon DocumentDB JDBC driver, you can visualize JSON data with Tableau Desktop and run SQL queries on JSON data with developer tools like DbVisualizer.
