[Optional] Specifies the domain of the Aster Database Queen. The host is the IP address or host name of the Queen, and the port is the port number on which the Queen is listening. For example: DOMAIN (

Default port: Aster Database standard port number (2406).

To specify an IPv6 address, enclose host in square brackets (for example, [::1]:2406).

[Optional] Name of the database where the input table is. Default: In Aster Database version 5.11 and earlier: 'beehive'. In Aster Database 6.0 or later: database name of the current connection.
[Optional] Aster Database user name of the user who is running this function. Default: 'beehive'.
[Optional] Aster Database password of the user who is running this function. If you omit the UserID and Password arguments, the new JDBC connection uses authentication cascading. The new JDBC connection inherits the privileges of the current connection.
[Optional] String that includes all the SSL settings, except the password for the trust store. For example: SSLSettings ('ENABLESSL=true&SSLTRUSTSTORE=/home/beehive/truststore/truststore.jks')
[Optional] Password for the SSL trust store. For example: SSLTrustStorePassword ('123456')

Use the SSLSettings and SSLTrustStorePassword arguments only when the Aster Database cluster requires an SSL connection.

If using an SSL JDBC connection, you must specify the SSLSettings and SSLTrustStorePassword arguments.

If using a normal JDBC connection, you must not specify the SSLSettings and SSLTrustStorePassword arguments.
