Hi all,
I need to write a type 4 jdbc driver. The data source is a specially formatted scientific text file, but I think this is unimportant. What I would like to know is where I can find information on how to go about doing such a thing. I have found articles on writing type 3 drivers on but no type 4.
Thanks in advance. Arun
