Hi All,

Lately i have noticed that some of the leading database vendors are discontinuing support for JDBC Type 3 ? Can any body explain the reason for this ?

You might consider contacting particular vendors (or finding their message boards) and asking them. I haven't seen much of a global trend, so its possible different companies have their reasoning. I suspect its properly because of laziness (and security)... they'd rather spend the time developing one good driver than 2 medium drivers, but thats a guess.
