Java connection to database
I was wondering if anyone had any tried to connect a java program to a dbase4 database. I know there is a jdbc/odbc bridge and also a straight out jdbc but I don't know if either have the capibility to talk to this style of database. Just looking for the easy way to accomplish this. Thanks
dbase4, hmm, have never used that one, but if it's accessible via SQL you should be able to use that db like any other db. In fact, the data access code should not have to be changed a comma when you switch to another database, except for the connection string.
The only excption to this is if the databases you use have slightly different implementation of the sql capabilities.
