Client- and server-side JDBC

JDBC is the industry standard API for executing SQL in Java.

Adaptive Server provides a native JDBC driver. This driver is designed to maximize performance as it executes on the server because it does not need to communicate across the network. This driver permits Java classes installed in a database to use JDBC classes that execute SQL statements.

When JDBC classes are used within a client application, you typically must use jConnect™ for JDBC™, the Sybase client-side JDBC database driver, to provide the classes necessary to establish a database connection.
