Progress DataDirect to Host Complimentary Webinar: Why Java Needs Type 5 JDBC Drivers
New Type of Driver to Address Common Data Access Challenges in the Java Community
Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS), a leading independent enterprise software provider that enables companies to be operationally responsive, today announced that Progress DataDirect will host a new webinar, “Why Java Needs Type 5 JDBC Drivers”, on Thursday, April 1 at 2:30 p.m. ET. This complimentary webinar is the second in a series of sessions, the first of which focused on how Type 4 JDBC drivers limit modern Java environments by restricting application performance and flexibility while increasing overall application CPU and memory footprint. This new webinar introduces the concept of a Type 5 JDBC driver, and how it can help alleviate some of these key performance issues.
- WHO: From Progress DataDirect, Jesse Davis, senior engineering manager and Jonathan Bruce, product manager for Connect, Sequelink, OpenAccess, and Cloud
- WHAT: “Why Java Needs Type 5 JDBC Drivers” – a complimentary webinar
- WHEN: Thursday, April 1, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. ET
- WHERE: Register now to download an archived recording of the webinar.
Session Overview: Have your JPA, Hibernate, or Spring-based applications experienced performance issues…after migrating from proof-of-concept to production deployment?
Have you tried to add new database features to an application…but were forced to change your code, or come up with a complicated, brittle work-around?
Have you ever stopped to think…is the JDBC driver that I am using the cause of my problem?
Even though they are used with virtually every major Java-based enterprise application deployment, JDBC drivers aren’t something most people think about.
Thankfully, Jonathan Bruce and Jesse Davis aren’t most people.
Whether you’re new to data access in Java or are familiar with the pain associated with the limitations of Type 4 JDBC drivers, you will want to join us for this complementary Webinar featuring Jonathan and Jesse. Together they will discuss and debate the need for a new type of JDBC driver – a Type 5 JDBC driver that:
- Overcomes the limitations of Type 4 JDBC driver architecture
- Delivers better Java application performance regardless of what data access model the application uses
- Allows modern data-driven Java applications to easily take advantage of years of innovation in database features without requiring code changes
