Java Connectivity - JDBC

JDBC is an API for the Java Programming Language defining how a client may access a database. JDBC provides methods for querying and updating data in a database. JDBC is relational database-oriented. Java SE includes the JDBC API together with an ODBC implementation of the API enabling connections to any relational database that supports ODBC. The Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API has become the industry standard for database-independent connectivity between the Java programming language and a range of databases SQL databases and other tabular data sources, such as spreadsheets or flat files.

The JDBC API provides a call-level API for SQL-based database access. JDBC technology allows the developer to use the Java programming language to exploit write once, run anywhere capabilities for applications that require access to enterprise data. With a JDBC technology-enabled driver, the user can connect all corporate data even in a heterogeneous environment. With JDBC, any user can establish a connection with a database or across any tabular data source, send SQL statements and process the results. The JDBC API contains two major sets of interfaces, the JDBC API for application writers and the lower-level JDBC driver API for driver writers. Applications and applets can access databases via the JDBC API using pure Java JDBC technology-based drivers.

Advantages of JDBC Technology

With JDBC technology, enterprises can continue to use their installed databases and access information easily, even if it is stored on different database management systems. The combination of the Java API and the JDBC API makes application development easy and economical. The JDBC API is simple to learn, easy to deploy, and inexpensive to maintain. With the JDBC API, no configuration is required on the client side. With a driver written in the Java programming language, all the information needed to make a connection is completely defined by the JDBC URL.

The JDBC API provides metadata access that enables the development of sophisticated applications. The JDBC technology-based driver does not require special installation and it is automatically downloaded as part of the applet that makes the JDBC calls. JDBC technology exploits the advantages of Internet-standard URLs to identify database connections. As a core part of the Java 2 Platform, the JDBC API is available anywhere that the platform is. The JDBC API is included in both the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) and the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), providing server-side functionality for industrial strength scalability.
