Need clarification on the Type-1 driver

Hi Ranchers,
While going through the Type 1 driver I got the following question. Please clarify them

1. If we are using the ODBC driver from the application why we are not allowed to call the method implementation in the driver directly with out using the DriverManager?
2. Is ODBC a C interface? Can we implement ODBC using Java language?
3. Is JDBC-ODBC Bridge driver uses the ODBC interface in the system or it comes as a package with the driver?


Regards,
Ravindra.
