where is the jdbc driver?

Hi,
I received a sql exception error that states " Driver does not support this function".
My question is how can I tell what JDBC driver I'm using and can I have different drivers on my system and then just specify which one to use as needed in my DB connection code?

Many times when I get that error there is something wrong with the SQL statement. Or, you're trying to do something the database itself doesn't support.
Is this for a servlet or JSP, if so you might get better info from one of those forums, let me know and I can move this thread for you.

Dave,
I checked the SQL, it's fine. I'm on the trail. Looks like I'm not using a Type 4 JDBC driver. Instead I'm using the JDBC-ODBC bridge which I'm told is not real great. I have the Weblogic driver now butit's giving me a licensing error....working on it ...one thing after another.
Thanks,
Steve
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
