I wanted to know that while choosing a particular driver how do we
identify whether its a type 3 or type 4 driver .
For ex what is the type of "ocx driver".

David explains the differences between driver types in this thread. I don't recal what an OCX driver is, but I'm pretty sure it isn't type 4 (pure-Java.)
