Is there a list of what functionality is supported for specific database drivers out there some where. I'm working w/ several drivers and want to know the advantages and disadvantages to each of them

I would think that you'd have to look at the documentation for the specific drivers you're interested in. If they are JDBC compliant then they should all have the same base functionality and any extra stuff they do should be documented by them.
The other option is to look at the code for the drivers but that could be a little tedious
You could also try looking at the DatabaseMetaData but that might be more database specific than driver specific.
hope that helps

I agree. Here's the link:
