Secure JDBC - Sybase

Sure this has been covered somewhere but dont seem to be able to find a concise answer. Our app is using straight
connections to a database and some concern has been expressed that when we issue
DriverManager.getConnection(dataBaseURL, userName, password)
that the username/password is being passed across the wire in an unsecure fashion. The backend is Sybase and we are using JConnect. Anyone have any feedback on implementing a secure JDBC connection between app and db ?
Thx in advance

You might use a connection pool to avoid that situation.
It is sorta covered in the
