gloTermJDBC
termSynsJDBC Driver

The Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API gives Java access to many databases. Many JDBC Drivers have already been written, and can be loaded directly into Ignition to allow connections to a number of databases. Ignition comes with many big drivers already installed, i.e., MySQL Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, etc.

termLabelsgloTermJVM

Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is an abstraction layer between a Java application and the underlying platform. JVM is actually part of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). It is the JRE (JVM plus base classes) that enables Java bytecode to run on any platform. A programmer can develop Java code on one system and can expect it to run on any other Java enabled system without any adjustment.

When we talk about 'the JVM' in Ignition, we are referring to the underlying layer of code that is running everything. See also Java, JRE.

gloTermJython

Jython is the scripting language Ignition uses in the Designer. Jython (Java-Python) can be used in an event based system like Ignition and uses the Python functions and syntax, but allows users access to Java methods.

gloTermJSON
termSynsJSON string

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a language-independent data format. It's easy for humans to read and write and for machines to parse and generate. JSON was derived from JavaScript, but as of 2017 many programming languages include code to generate and parse JSON-format data.

Ignition uses the JSON format to store much of its data internally, including Tags and component properties.

gloTermJSON Web SignaturetermAbbrs

A JSON Web Signature (JWS) is a standard for signing arbitrary data. It is used as the basis for a variety of web-based technologies including JSON Web Token (JWT). In Ignition, JWS is used in security with some Identity Providers to verify authentication.

JSON Web Token (JWT) is a JSON-based open standard (RFC 7519) for creating access tokens that assert some number of claims. In Ignition, JWS is used in security with some Identity Providers to remember login information during a session.
