JDBC Questions and Answers

Are all the required JDBC drivers to establish connectivity to my database part of the JDK?

No. There aren’t any JDBC technology-enabled drivers bundled with the JDK 1.1.x or Java 2 Platform releases other than the JDBC-ODBC Bridge. So, developers need to get a driver and install it before they can connect to a database. We are considering bundling JDBC technology- enabled drivers in the future.
