JDBC is the de-facto standard for accessing relational database systems from the Java programming language.
The Mimer SQL JDBC Driver is a Type 4 - Native Protocol All-Java Driver. The Type 4 architecture uses a message protocol that is specific to Mimer SQL; as this means that there is no need for any intervening processes or translation, this architecture is extremely efficient.
A Type 4 driver is written completely in Java so that it can run on any client that supports the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). This makes the Mimer SQL JDBC Driver ideally suitable for both Internet and intranet applications and for use in application servers. An applet using the JDBC driver will run on any client browser.
The driver is extremely small (approximately 100KB in JAR format) in size, so that it can be simply incorporated into an applet that can be downloaded over the Internet. No other Mimer software is required to be installed on the Java client, eliminating any need for configuration management on the client side.
