The MarkLogic ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows developers to connect with live MarkLogic databases, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity. Users can project a relational view of data in MarkLogic and access it using ODBC and standard SQL.

A driver for MAC OSX is available through the community tools.
