JDBC 4.0 is part of Java SE 6. There is no special implementation that you need to download or install.
To be able to use all the new JDBC 4.0 features you probably need a JDBC driver that implements those features - and implementing JDBC drivers is up to the database vendors. So you'll have to find out if your database vendor has a JDBC driver available that implements the new features. [ October 04, 2007: Message edited by: Jesper Young ]
I would conclude that wherever those are mentioned, the information was based on a pre-release version of the JDK, and that it got dropped. [ October 05, 2007: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]

So, basically, according to the Release Notes for JDK 6 JDBC 3.0 was released, not JDBC 4.0 I was primarily interested in using the new features of JDBC 4.0, but I could not get past the articles written about the new features and not being able to code myself. UPDATE: some features got in the JDK 6, but not all of them. [ October 08, 2007: Message edited by: Alex Khvatov ]
