THERE ARE 4 TYPES OF DRIVERS ARE THERE IN JDBC..WHY MOST OF THEM USING JDBC-ODBDDRIVER..tell me advantages and dis advantages
ANS.....
The JDBC-ODBC Driver is commonly used because it can be used with data source that
supports ODBC. And that is almost everything from Oracle to an Excel spreadsheet. In
addition it comes from Sun for free with the JDK. The disadvantage is the ODBC by itself
is slow and your adding an additional layer (the JDBC layer) on top of that. And of course
the client must have ODBC installed.
I AM NOT SATISFIED WITH ABOVE ANS BECAUSE...HE DIDN'T EXPLAIN
OTHER 3DRIVERS ADV AND DIS ADVANTAGES....

Well, I'm sorry that you can't write a sentence and make your desires known. You asked why most people use JDBC-ODBC and I answered that question. I would suggest that if you want an in-depth answer that you go read a book.

Check out: http://www.computerworld.com/home/features.nsf/all/991213qs
It gives a very good description of the 4 types of drivers as well as pros and cons to each one.
