JDBC-ODBC Connection


JDBC-ODBC Connection is a JDBC driver that translates the operation in  JDBC into ODBC. For ODBC,it is a normal java application program. This bridge provides JDBC  for database in which an ODBC driver is available. The bridge is represented as sun.jdbc.odbc.The Java contain a defined package and its library to access ODBC.

Understand with Example

In this Tutorial we help you in explaining JDBC Odbc Connection in Java. The code explains you a how creation and closing of connection is done. For this code we have a   JdbcOdbc Connection class. The class contains a main method, that include a list of steps as follow -

   Loading a driver is the first step to be done inside the try block of main method ( ) by calling a Class.forName ( ),this class accept a "sun.jdbc.odbc.jdbcodbc Driver" as argument.

   DriverManager.getConnection ( ) : This establish or built a connection between url and emp table in the database.

 The print print the "New Connection Create..."..The Connection object call a close ( ),return you the connection is closed. The println show the "Connection closed"

In case the exception exists in a try block, the subsequent catch block check and handle the exception. 


import java.sql.*;

public class JdbcOdbcConnection {

    public static void main(String args[]) {

        Connection con = null;

        try {


            con = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:odbc:emp");

            System.out.println("New Connection Create ....");


            System.out.println("Connection closed");

        catch (Exception e) {







New Connection Create ....
Connection closed
