Download Tomorrow’s JDBC Driver Today
Introduced more than 10 years ago, Type 4 JDBC drivers have had a long run as the best available JDBC connectivity technology. Written entirely in Java and directly converting JDBC calls into vendor-specific database calls, the Type 4 driver for JDBC was a substantial improvement over preceding JDBC products. However, a decade in production environments has shown the significant shortcomings of the Type 4 JDBC driver, including inconsistent performance, inefficient resource utilization, and limited accessible functionality.
Progress® DataDirect, the world’s leading provider of data connectivity solutions, has developed a breakthrough Type 5 driver for JDBC that overcomes the limitations of the conventional Type 4 driver. You can download tomorrow’s driver for JDBC today.
Download the World’s First Type 5 Driver for JDBC
Progress DataDirect Connect® database drivers are the driver of choice for leading software vendors and for some of the world’s largest corporations. The culmination of our 20 years as data connectivity specialists, Connect drivers for JDBC, ODBC, and ADO.NET are known for superior performance, reliability, and functionality. We offer innovative Type 5 JDBC drivers for every database scenario, such as a JDBC SQL Server connection or JDBC connectivity for Oracle, Sybase, Informix, DB2, or MySQL. You can download a driver for JDBC, ODBC, or ADO.NET and start a free trial.
Your Connect Type 5 JDBC driver download will deliver benefits not available with any other JDBC driver on the market:
- Consistently superior performance. When you download a driver for JDBC Type 5, you’re getting a driver that consistently outperforms JDBC Type 4 drivers in rigorous benchmark testing for throughput and response time. Unlike JDBC Oracle Type 4 and other typical Type 4 drivers, your JDBC driver download will deliver superior performance regardless of the runtime environment, the data access model, or the number of concurrent users.
- A smaller resource footprint. Connect Type 5 drivers for JDBC are up to 150 percent more CPU efficient than competing drivers, while using as little as one-fifth the memory of other drivers. Resource-efficient and easily tunable, Connect JDBC drivers minimize your hardware requirements and are ideally suited to virtualized environments.
- Robust, accessible functionality. When you download a Type 5 driver for JDBC, your applications get instant access to robust driver-based functionality including application failover, load balancing, statement pooling, and bulk loading.
- Ease of deployment and administration. Unlike typical Type 4 JDBC drivers, your Connect JDBC driver download requires only a single JAR file to support multiple JVMs and multiple versions of a particular database. The Connect JDBC driver also supports advanced features such as BLOBs and CLOBs without any proprietary extensions to the JDBC standard.
Along with our innovative JDBC Type 5 drivers, we offer a SQL Server ODBC driver download as well as downloads for ODBC Oracle and every other major database connectivity scenario.
Progress also provides solutions for mainframe environments, including a cost-effective mainframe business event processing platform.
