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.

Scott,
What is the security issue with Type-3 drivers as you mentioed in your post ?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
