open data access (ODA) driver
An ODA driver communicates between a data source and an application. An ODA driver establishes a connection to a data source, accesses metadata about the data, and executes queries on the data source. In Actuate BIRT technology, ODA drivers are plug-in extensions to the Eclipse Data Tools Platform project. Actuate BIRT iServer System and the IO Design perspective can use ODA drivers implemented as an Eclipse plug-in to the Data Tools Platform project.
