How is Oracle JDBC different?

I have been using JDBC in serveral applications for awhile now. I have wrote dynamic SQL against Sybase, SQL Server, DB2, and Access (using the ODBC bridge). I have also written PreparedStatements against DB2 and SQL Server. I have not yet had the opportunity to use Oracle as the database, until now. My new job uses Oracle as the database, and I was wonder what things about JDBC are Oracle specific?

Hi Bill,

You are already on the stage. Just go ahead. The JDBC is same irrespective of the backend it connects to.

Thats why we have interfaces defined as part of the JDBC, and the drivers are DB specific.

All the Best.
