I believe it depends, which driver class we are specifying and the installed JRE . Hibernate is not limited to any particular driver type.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Hibernate uses whichever driver you specify; it could be any type. Everything but type 4 drivers have been out of fashion for quite a while, though.
I agree. Here's the link:
