Hi all,

I heard that Type 2 driver is suitable only for local system databases and local network databases (assume that we are accessing from non-applet stand alone java program). Also, Type 2 driver is not suitable for remote databases. WHY?


regards,
Krishna

Type 2 requires client machines be configured with database API libraries and direct access to the database, therefore it cannot be used over the internet.
