Hi,

JDBC IS Java Database Connectivity, standardized DB interface for Java. This technology allows to write applications and use it with any SQL database that has a JDBC-driver.
So, i dont think it can be anything else....!

That is what I have come across in many books. But if u'll notice in JDBC API docs, spec & tutorials, u wont find an instance of JDBC stated as Java DataBase Connectivity.check it out!!

Hi
I have read in one of Sun documents that JDBC is not stand for "Java Database Connectivity" Its a trademark like other Java TMs .

Sun doesnt meant that it doesnt mean "Java databse Connectivity" but its a trademark .

i hope its clear.

This is silly. JDBC is a trademark name. Diet Coke is a trademark name, as well. Does Diet Coke mean "diet Coca-Cola" ?

It's a NAME! Sun took an acronym and trademarked it. JDBC is JDBC. As long as everyone knows what it's for, it doesn't matter.

Shall we go into further discussion as to whether we should refer to the sun as "the sun", or perhaps we should refer to it as Sol?

i got something from whatis.com, but then i visited the vendors they were saying something else. looked for aglets.

according to whatis.com - agile applets
according to docs found at IBM japan - agent applets

anyways whatis.com works mostly.

This seems to have gotten completely off topic. Closing.
