A client is used to send queries to Starburst Enterprise platform (SEP) and receive results, or otherwise interact with SEP and the connected data sources.

Some clients, such as the command line interface, can provide a user interface directly. Clients like the JDBC driver provide a mechanism for other tools to connect to SEP.

The following basic clients are available:

A good start to explore is the Query editor, which is built-in to the Starburst Enterprise web UI.

SEP also includes support and documentation for the Starburst ODBC driver

Many more clients are supported, as described in the detail pages of the Clients section of the Data consumer user guide.

In addition, you can learn more about client usage for writing queries, creating charts, dashboards, and more from our Data consumer user guide.
