You can download the drivers from the respective DB vendors' web sites. Just search for "JDBC driver" on the site and it should lead you to the download section. The drivers should also come with instructions on how to use them. For type 4 drivers, there isn't more to it than adding the jar file to the classpath, and using the correct class name and connection string, both of which will be mentioned in the documentation.
