Oracle Database Connection

  Asked By: Madeline    Date: Jul 27    Category: Java    Views: 818

I just started to learn Java. I have a specific need
to create a java program where I will be able to pass values to the
program and have it query an Oracle database returning a value.

I am writing this program to run on a Windows 2000 server and this
Oracle Database resides on the server as well but I will have a need
to have the Java program query an Oracle database on an Unix server

What is the best way to connect to the Oracle database? ODBC

in java  use JDBC; Oracle has developed its own native JDBC drivers,
so they should in any case give better performance than the JDBC-ODBC
bridge together with an ODBC connection  to Oracle.
One gotcha: I've never worked with ODBC or JDBC, but the use of JDBC
is that it provides a native Java interface to _all_ kinds of
databases (as long as they provide a JDBC interface as well).
