The driver types that I think you are referring to have to do with the underlying technology. See Types of JDBC technology drivers for more information on this.

I believe that the MySQL jdbc driver (com.mysql.jdbc.Driver) is Type 4.

MySQL Connector/J is a Type IV JDBC driver.

Sun provides a good resource for finding JDBC drivers:
