What is JDBC? What are different types of JDBC drivers?
JDBC stands for Java Database Connectivity. It is an Application Programming Interface (API) which helps to connect Java applications to external, relational database management systems (RDBMS).
JDBC API uses different JDBC drivers to connect with the database. The four types of JDBC drivers are:
• JDBC-ODBC Bridge Driver.
• Native-API Driver (Partially Java Driver).
• Network Protocol Driver (fully Java Driver).
• Thin Driver (fully Java Driver).
