Is there a way to find out the JDBC driver I am using in my application.
By type I mean type1,...., type4 driver.

Use following method for this:

public String getDriverName()
throws SQLExceptionWhat's the name of this JDBC driver?
JDBC driver name
SQLException - if a database access error occurs

... and once you know the driver/class name, you can head over to Suns JDBC driver page to get more information on your particular driver.
