1.ODBC is for Microsoft and JDBC is for java applications.
2.ODBC can't be directly used with Java because it uses a C
3.ODBC makes use of pointers which have been removed
totally from java.
4.ODBC mixes simple and advanced features together and has
complex options for simple queries,But JDBC is designed to
keep things simple while allowing advanced capabilities
when required.
5.ODBC requires manual installation of the ODBC driver
manager and driver on all client machines.JDBC drivers are
written in java and JDBC code is automatically
installable,secure,and portable on all platforms.
6. JDBC API is a natural Java Interface and is built on
ODBC. JDBC retains some of the basic feature of ODBC

This is what i found out when i googled it out.............may be some once saves few clicks............
