Mimer JDBC Drivers provide access to Mimer SQL databases from Java applications and applets. The drivers are type 4 drivers, which means that they are written entirely in Java. As they are written in Java, they can be downloaded in applets.

Mimer JDBC Drivers can also be used on all platforms that support Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and so provide a very high degree of portability.

About this Guide

The guide is intended for Java application developers working with Mimer SQL. It covers all available Mimer JDBC drivers.

The guide describes the usage of SQL in Java applications, and provides, together with the Mimer SQL Reference Manual, the complete reference material for Mimer SQL.

To read more about JDBC and JVM, visit http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/tech/index-jsp-136101.html.

The JDBC API specification implemented by this driver (packages java.sql and javax.sql) is found at http://download.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/api/java/sql/package-summary.html and http://download.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/api/javax/sql/package-summary.html.

Mimer JDBC has a complete range of functionality and support for the smallest devices to the high-end systems and application servers. In the picture below the various Java environments are described and coupled with computer environments and Mimer JDBC drivers:


To keep the driver size small and to optimize performance the Mimer JDBC drivers do not perform any logging. For logging, we provide a separate driver, Mimer JDBC Trace driver.

Mimer JDBC Trace driver is a full JDBC Driver that covers all of JDBC by calling the matching routines of the logged JDBC Driver.

It produces a log of every JDBC call an application makes, and also measures the elapsed time for each call. The log can be written to a file, or can be displayed directly in a window.
