Important New Features in JDBC 3.0
The JDBC 3.0 specification shipped as part of the J2SE 1.4 release early this year. The key goals of the JDBC Expert Panel were to align with the most important features of SQL99, to combine all of the previous JDBC specifications into a single document, to provide a standard way to take advantage of native DBMS functionality, and to improve scalability. The 3.0 specification contains a collection of useful new features. Although none of these new features taken alone would be considered major, there are several useful enhancements in JDBC 3.0 that make it good news for JDBC users.
