Hi
I'm developing an applet that access a sybase database on a remote computer. How can I register the sybase jdbc driver on the client machine where the applet is running?
Thanks...

It depends whether you are developing an intranet application or an internet application.
For intranet applications it would be useful to consider type 2 drivers. But since type 3 and type 4 drivers show significantly better performance than type 2 drivers and the trend is towards development of more robust pure-Java drivers, it might be useful to evaluate type 3 or type 4 for intranet situations too.
For Internet-related applications, there is no option but to use type 3 or type 4 drivers. Type 3 drivers are best suited for environments that need to provide connectivity to a variety of DBMS servers and heterogeneous databases and that require significantly high levels of concurrently connected users where performance and scalability are major concerns. Type 4 drivers are generally aimed at the workgroup level.

I already have a sybase driver type 4. What I want to know is what is the best way to download the driver to the client machine in execution time. Is this possible?
Thanks again
