is the best Type-3 JDBC driver in the market, packed with
features essential to today's database centric Java applets, servlets, Web
Start and stand-alone applications.
A 100% pure Java implementation driver, guarantees the "write once, run
anywhere" promise of Java. No client-side configuration required. Runs in all Java enabled browsers,
Java Plug-in and JDK, plus all your favorite Java development tools.
Fast and Compact
A high performance JDBC driver only 51K to 78K in JAR size (Lite version)
and just 102K to 131K with SSL encryption.
JDBC 3.0 Support
Supported JDBC 3.0 features include: batch update, scrollable and
updatable ResultSet, Blob/Clob data
types for Oracle and SQL Server, connection and statement pooled DataSource
and XADataSource, save-point, parameter meta-data, set parameters by name,
auto-generated keys, cursor holdability.
Heterogeneous Database Access
A single IDS JDBC Driver can connect to multiple heterogeneous databases at
the same time: Oracle, Sybase, Informix, MS SQL Server, OLE DB, MS
Access, ODBC, FoxPro, dBase, DB2, Ingres, mSQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL,
Secure dbAccess (formerly known as Secure JDBC)
An advance security feature that uses the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol
to encrypt the connections between the
driver and the server to protect all database transactions. The Secure
JDBC SSL implementation is built on open source encryption library SSLeay
Complete Firewall Access Support
Both server-side and client-side firewall access are possible with
features like IDS Server Proxy, HTTPS and SOCKS proxy connection, and HTTP
A performance enhancement of IDS JDBC Driver that uses a Java thread to
continuously fetch query results from the IDS Server in the
background, while allowing JDBC applications in the foreground
to perform other task. ResultSet Caching significantly improves the responsiveness
of programs running large resultsets or on low bandwidth connections.
Running with JDK 1.1 or higher Java VM, IDS JDBC Driver offers transparent
Unicode support for databases such as Microsoft SQL Server and ODBC 3.5
data sources. It also allows the JDBC
program to specify explicitly a Character Set Converter so
that text data is automatically converted between different
single-byte and multi-byte character endcoding. All
languages supported by Java are support by this driver with very little
