MariaDB starting with 10.0
The CONNECT handler was introduced in MariaDB 10.0.
The CONNECT handler enables MariaDB to access external local or remote data. This is done by defining tables based on different data types, in particular files of various format, data extracted from other products (such as Excel), or data retrieved from the environment (for example DIR, WMI, and MAC tables).
This handler supports MariaDB virtual columns and also permits to define “special” columns such as ROWID and FILEID.
