If you are using a type 4 driver the platform hosting the database doesn't matter. JDBC will be unsing some thing like TCP/IP to do it.

Thanks Paul for your reply.
Does it mean that if i am using Type4 driver ..i need not to care about the operating system on which that DB is installed.
Please clear it in detail.
