Achieve faster database failover with Amazon Web Services JDBC Driver for PostgreSQL

The AWS JDBC Driver for PostgreSQL is now generally available for use with your Amazon RDS or Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL-compatible edition database clusters. This wrapper driver is designed to work with the PostgreSQL community driver and provide improved failover handling for clustered databases such as Aurora PostgreSQL. The AWS JDBC Driver for PostgreSQL is drop-in compatible with your existing applications because it adds failover functionality alongside the community driver, reducing the need for you to make application changes. This release replaces the standalone AWS JDBC Driver for PostgreSQL previously released as a preview.
