Can anybody clear my doubt?? When we are using JDBC service of a J2EE server(e.g Connection pooling in Weblogic server) what type of driver are we really working with. Is it Type 3 because we are using a server to select the driver or is it a Type 4 because we are declaring the driver in the URL field(while configuring the serever to implement the conection pooling). OR is it like we are using the combination of Type3 and Type4??
I hope my question is clear.

read about jdbc drivers so that you can figure out the difference among them.

There aren't may rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
