Driver manager section creates the connection object. The only point we wanted to highlight is the way the SQL State code structure is. It is also certified for use on J2EE servers. This returns us vendor specific error code which can be useful in case the driver itself has some errors. No need to install anything on the client. The use of this driver is discouraged if the alternative of a pure-Java driver is available.

Above shows a small table section for the error code i.

Oracle will have oracle native api. Retrieved 27 June The driver accesses the SQL engine by using internal function calls and thus avoiding any network traffic.

In addition, since this driver is a FAT client with natively compiled code.

Below is the code snippet for the same. It depends on the number of databases the middleware has been configured to support. At client side, a separate driver is needed for each database. Note that if running in a client browser, that browser must allow the applet to open a Java socket connection back to the server.

The one briddge issue is if you are changing the database you bridgge to also change the driver which means you need to change the connection string to load the driver.


The JDBC driver gives out the connection to the database and implements the protocol for transferring the query and result between client and database. Further, these drivers can be downloaded dynamically. This article may be too technical bridbe most readers to understand.

Architecture of Type 4 Driver. When using JDBC, Java programmers have the ability to request connections to a database, send queries to the database using SQL statements, and receive results for advanced processing. All the processes of application are managed by JVM.

The JDBC type 4 driver, also known as the native-protocol driver is a database driver implementation that converts JDBC calls directly into the vendor-specific database protocol.

There are 4 limifations of JDBC drivers: Connection object create the statement object with the required SQL which is then executed against the database. Note that, like the bridge driver, this style of driver requires that some binary code be loaded on each client machine. Oracle jdbc-odbcc supply an ODBC driver, but does not supply a bridge driver.

JDBC Driver Types

It uses the vendor class libraries, so needs extra installation on client machine. If the Use custom SQL prepared statements option is enabled when working with this database, a java. This net server middleware is able to connect all of its Java technology-based clients to many jxbc-odbc databases. This driver is essentially not used anymore.


JDBC driver – Wikipedia

The first driver that recognizes the URL makes the connection. Type 2 driver resides on the client along with the JAVA application. Best use is for controlled environments, such as an intranet. Unlike the type 3 drivers, it does not need associated software to work.

This page was last edited on 25 Septemberat This differs from the type 4 driver in that the protocol conversion logic resides not at the o, but in the middle-tier.

Note that, like the bridge driver, this style of driver requires that some binary code be loaded on each client machine.

Understanding JDBC Drivers

Type 2 driver uses jdbc-odbbc native code part instead of ODBC parts. The type 4 driver is written completely in Java and is hence platform independent. This driver may or may not suit your purpose.

JDBC allows you to write Java code, and leave the platform database specific code to the driver. This is a Type 4 driver and supports Sybase 10, 11, 12 and
