In a 2-tier environment driver is generally selected using Class.forName("driver");
or using You can dig into your code and see how database connection is being obtained.
If yours is a 3-tier environment, you will have to browse thru server configuration to see how Connection pools are configured.
Or you can also check the class-path for example
Oracle JDBC driver is shipped as Classes12.jar/zip or ojdbc14.jar etc.

Ask your co-workers? (Or is this a "trick" question?)
