Subject R: JDBC Driver for MySQL
Date Fri, 16 Feb 2001 22:07:34 GMT
If you are looking for Jdbc drivers form my sql, classical ones (type 4) for
MySql are:
- twzJdbcForMySql
- mm.mysql.jdbc

If your question is whether is better to use type III or type IV, Type 3 is
only going to be flexible to you if you are coding an application to work
with a variety of databases. There is no type 3 for mysql that I am aware of
anyway. The only way I know is about using some kind of database gateway
(Borland, Merant) tha allow using a jdbc driver, and let it access MySql via
an odbc driver (the one at for example)...what a long trip to
access data!
If you are writting an application or servlet or whatever that will only be
using mysql you are fine with type 4, if you are writting it to work with
multiple databases, and you can manage to get it to work that way you can
always let it use more than one jdbc driver at run-time.
