Subject Re: Is there a native JDBC driver for MS Access?
Date Mon, 08 Apr 2002 00:38:45 GMT
Ummmmm, okay then how stable is the JDBC/ODBC bridge?  As I previously
mentioned in my initial posting some bits and peices that I've read suggest
that this method of connecting to a DB back end is, or can be, a little
dodgy.  The comments basically revolved around the premise that the bridge
is not capable of being threaded and it is considered by Sun to still be
experimental.  I got the impression that there is potential for data loss or
corruption along with performance related issues.

I guess I really need to know if it is reasonable to use Tomcat to host an
environment that relies on this sort of DB connectivity.
