Hello guys!!! I have a basic doubt. DriverManager is a class then why is not instantiated as other classes. For example we usually give as Connection con=DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc.odbc.dsn","username","password"); Why don't we give as DriverManager dm=new DriverManager(...) waiting for reply Thanks in advance.

Hi, getConnection() method is a static method in DriverManager class. So, you don't need to instantiate it, to call the method. There are no visible constructors in DriverManager class. So, you cannot create an instance of it. I guess it is similar to Math class. Hope this helps. Milind
