I have seen the term "driver class". I did a search and could not seem to find a definition. Is this the same as the main program? If not could someone tell me what it is.

thanks in advance

It can mean a main program, yes. Often, though, it implies a demonstration program, one that shows how to exercise some class or library without really doing anything useful itself.

Or it can be the main class of a specific implementation for a generic API, such as a JDBC driver class.
