Oracle Database - Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) Driver

Card Puncher Data Processing


Java client applications access an Oracle Database through a Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) Driver, a standard Java interface for connecting from Java to a relational database. Oracle offers the following drivers:

  • JDBC OCI Driver for client side use with an Oracle client installation

A Type II driver for use with client/server Java applications. This driver requires an Oracle client installation.

  • JDBC Thin Driver, a pure Java driver for client side use without an Oracle installation, particularly with applets

A Type IV driver for Oracle JDBC applets and applications. Because it is written entirely in Java, this driver is platform-independent. It does not require any additional Oracle software on the client side. The Thin driver communicates with the server using Two-Task Common (TTC), a protocol developed by Oracle to access the database server.

These drivers use Oracle Net to enable connectivity between a client application and an Oracle Database.
