You mean the hard drive inside the computer or did you mean the JDBC driver for connecting to databases?

hi, Stanley,
Thanks for your prompt reply.
I mean JDBC drives.

Ok, first of all, a side note. It's "driver" with an "r" not drive.
Um, well, if you installed the JDK, then there is ONE JDBC driver that comes with it. It's the JDBC-ODBC driver that can be used to connect to any DMBS that supports ODBC.
If you need other drivers, then you can download them though some of them will cost you.
Are you looking for a particular driver to connect to a particular database?

Again, it's driver with an r.
In the case of moving to a new computer without any JDK installed, then there would probably be no JDBC drivers installed. If there were any, they would actually be quite useless if you weren't using them in Java applications.
Good luck on learning more
