Hi...
I have small doubt on Type-1 JDBC Driver. actually Type-1 JDBC Driver is a JDBC-ODBC Bridge driver plus ODBC driver.My doubt is The Bridge is implemented in Java and uses Java native methods to call ODBC and ODBC uses the native API of DB server.so isn't it nternally this bridge contain ODBC driver right?so what is need of another ODBC driver(JDBC-ODBC Bridge driver plus ODBC driver)?suppose if I'm thinking wrong please correct me.
