Can someone give me a link to information on the differences between Type 1-4 Drivers, and what it is that the Driver actually does? When I say Driver I am refereing to a 100% JAVA Driver like Connector/J or something similar.
Thanks.

This has a decent explanation of what a driver is:

This explains the 4 categories:

Hope this helps.
