List of JDBC Driver

In this tutorial you will see different drivers for different database applications

List of JDBC Drivers

JDBC driver is a software component, which enables the java application to connect to a database. There are so many good database applications are present today, to connect a java application to any particular database we need its JDBC driver. Therefore we requires JDBC driver for database application. It gives the connection to the database and implements the protocol for querying and transferring data between application and database.

The table given below shows the list of JDBC drivers-
