Mimer SQL and the JDBC API
JDBC is the de-facto standard for accessing relational database systems from the Java programming language. It defines a framework that provides a uniform interface to a number of different database connectivity modules.
Mimer SQL supports JDBC as one of its native application programming interfaces (API).
The Mimer JDBC Driver is a Type 4 - Native Protocol All-Java Driver, also known as a Java thin 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.
This chapter is not intended to be a complete guide to the functionality provided by JDBC. It is written to introduce you to accessing Mimer SQL through JDBC.
