The JDBC driver gives out the connection to the database and implements the protocol for transferring the query and result between client and database. Needs some database-specific code on the middleware server. They are the most efficient amongst all driver types.

Jdbc Odbc Bridge Driver

However the type 2 driver provides more functionality and performance than the type 1 driver as it does not have the overhead of the additional ODBC function calls.

A performance issue is seen as a JDBC call goes through the bridge to the ODBC driver, then to the database, and this applies even in the reverse process. It provides better performance over the type 1 and 2 drivers as it does not have the overhead of conversion of calls into ODBC or database API calls.

Java Database Connectivity JDBC is an implementation of the Java programming language that dictates how databases communicate with each other.

Advantages for using this type of driver include the following: The type 3 driver typically provides support for features such as caching connections, query results, and so onload balancing, and advanced system administration such as logging and auditing.

This article has multiple issues.


About Sun Adapter for JDBC/ODBC

If the middleware must run on different platforms, a Type 4 driver might be more effective. At the application end, the driver is pure Java and therefore completely portable.

Views Read Edit View history. Instead, the application program is linked to a driver managerwhich is responsible for loading the required ODBC driver at runtime and then initializing the driver with a stored set of attributes:. User needs a different driver for each different database. The drivers listed in jdbc. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Easysoft JDBC-ODBC Bridge User Guide – Introduction

By deploying database drivers laced with JDBC technology, it is possible to connect to any database — even in a heterogeneous environment — and access tables, tabular data, flat files and more. Many mainframe legacy non-relational databases use this kind of driver.

Retrieved 27 June They install inside the Java Virtual Machine of the client. Those drivers come in four varieties. Type 4 JDBC drivers are written entirely in Java and transmit database-specific messages direct to the DBMSwhich cannot be changed without modifying or replacing the driver.

JDBC driver – Wikipedia

This allows a direct call from the client machine to the DBMS server. It tests the drivers by calling the method Driver. Please help improve this article if you can.

The advantage for using this type of driver is that it allows access to almost any database since the database ODBC drivers are readily mdbc. Oracle OCI driver is a type 2 driver.


Paid and Free Tests. It will skip any drivers that are untrusted code unless they have been loaded from the same source as the code that is trying to open the connection.

Since the Bridge driver is not written fully in Java, Type 1 drivers are not portable. For the Microsoft Windows driver manager, go to http: The JDBC type 3 driver, also known as the network-protocol driver is a database driver implementation which makes use of a middle-tier between the calling program and the database.

It is installed inside the Java Virtual Machine of the client. Number of translation layers is very less i.

If the middle-tier server can in turn use Type1, Type 2 or Type 4 drivers. In such cases, the order in which the drivers are tested is significant because the DriverManager will use the first driver it finds that can successfully connect to the given URL.

Unlike the type 1 and 2 drivers, it does not need associated software to work.
