JDBC AND applets
posted 15 years ago
Thanks to the antics of Netscape and Microsoft, the JVMs in web browsers are too old for JDBC. However, even if they weren't, JDBC is a security issue - the sandbox blocks unsigned applets from using it. it's much easier to do the database work 3-tier style, passing URLRequests to a servlet or JSP and letting the actual database code live on the webserver.
