Why we can't directly connect through java to ODBC drivers

You can connect via the JDBC-ODBC bridge.

ODBC drivers are usually written in native code which is the reason that you can't access them directly. The JDBC-ODBC bridge allows you to access them indirectly however.

The performance and functionality isn't often great when you use JDBC-ODBC bridge however, you'd be better off using a pure Java driver if possible.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
