This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi Friends, I know only one driver, that is type one. But i don't about remining drivers. How you can know about drivers and database information.And in what situation, each of the four drivers are used? Thankyou bye nadh ------------------
Hi Here's a good link on explanations on the diffrent drivers. You have to analyse each 'type' for the job it's going to perform. http://java.sun.com/products/jdbc/faq.html http://www.cariboulake.com/techinfo/jdbc_driver_types.html In a nutshell some of these drivers are more (or lesss) portable across platforms for your application. You may rquire client installation, or server installation, it depends on the driver. (AsEx Type II is server installed with nothing to install on the client, but it's seen as more problematic to maintain). Also, some offer more (or less) accessability to the more advanced features of the JDBC2 package (javax.sql) My opinion (and it's a bit biased at time) I like Type III drivers, their performance is great and they usually can handle all of the javax.sql stuff. Type IV would be used if you need 100% java solution with your application. [This message has been edited by John Bateman (edited April 24, 2000).]
