Hello All, I'm trying to write an application running on windows NT workstation to connect to Sybase SQL server running on Solaris. I'm not permitted to make any changes to the SQL server.....can JDBC be implemented from the client side only??? I don't think there are any JDBC drivers loaded on the SQL server. Do all type 4 drivers (jconnect for Sybase) need some server side component installed or is there a way around that??? Are there any alternatives to JDBC (i don't want to use ODBC)??? Any idea's on a best approach??? Any help much appreciated. Thanks Colm.
jdbc can be used when only installed on the client( for a client/server application --> 2-tier architecture). Download the jdbc drivers for your DB, then put the .jar/.zip file in your classpath. As long as you have permissions, you can do it! Jamie
