JDBC for Sybase

Hello All,
I'm trying to write an application running on windows NT workstation to connect to Sybase SQL server running on Solaris. I'm not permitted to make any changes to the SQL server.....can JDBC be implemented from the client side only???
I don't think there are any JDBC drivers loaded on the SQL server. Do all type 4 drivers (jconnect for Sybase) need some server side component installed or is there a way around that???
Are there any alternatives to JDBC (i don't want to use ODBC)???
Any idea's on a best approach???
Any help much appreciated.

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at .
We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please re-register and select a new name which meets the requirements.
I agree. Here's the link:
