I want to create a JDBC driver for the Database I use. Since it only supports ODBC and the fine unamed company will not release a JDBC bridge or stand alone driver. So how or where can I go to learn about creating my own Drivers?

If it supports ODBC, why can't you use the jdbcdbc bridge provided by Sun? What is the database you are using?
The cost to make one would probably far exceed the cost to buy one...unless you were to sell it after...but do you want to count on that? Do you have the time to put in to make it?

I am using UniData by Ardent. It is a multivalued database. Yes I would like to make one cause the cost for many companies (even thou there are not a tremendous amount) would hopefully pay for the bridge instead of having to completly upgrade to version 6.0 which is not coming out until middle next year or so.
Any tips or Ideas?

I found this driver for uniData. Don't know how good it is, but it might be useful(and it looks free!).

Thanks for the Sun Web Site URL. I have found all the Ardent JDBC drivers and even talk to there Tech Support and they have not created a driver for that DB. Again Thanks for you help!

They make many Type 4 drivers for SQL Server, unfortunately they won't work on Ardent databases
