JAVA Database Connectivity (JDBC) JDBC lets Java programmers connect to a database, query it or update it using SQL. Java and JDBC have an essential advantage over other database programming environments since the programs developed with this technology are platform-independent and vendor- independent. Because of its universality Java and JDBC could eventually replace proprietary database languages. The Design of JDBC JavaSoft's JDBC consists of two layers: the JDBC API and the JDBC Driver Manager API. The JDBC API is the top layer and is the programming interface in Java to structured query language (SQL) which is the standard for accessing relational databases. The JDBC API communicates with the JDBC Driver Manager API , sending it various SQL statements. The manager communicates (transparent to the programmer) with the various third party drivers (provided by Database vendors like Oracle) that actually connect to the database and return the information from the query.
