Sybase Driver JDBC
Get the Best Sybase Driver for JDBC
For more than 10 years, the Type 4 JDBC driver has been the best available solution for JDBC connectivity to Sybase databases, despite known limitations including inconsistent performance and inefficient resource utilization. Progress® DataDirect, the leading provider of database connectivity technologies, has now changed the JDBC landscape by introducing a breakthrough Type 5 JDBC driver that delivers the same single-tier, 100 percent Java engineering of the JDBC Type 4 driver—but with superior performance, scalability, and manageability.
The World’s First Type 5 JDBC Sybase Driver
Progress DataDirect Connect® is the industry-best line of drivers for JDBC, ODBC, and ADO.NET, the choice of leading software vendors and some of the world’s largest corporations. Our innovative Type 5 Sybase driver for JDBC delivers compelling advantages for developers, administrators, and users of distributed applications accessing Sybase back ends:
- Superior performance. Benchmarking tests have demonstrated that Connect Type 5 JDBC drivers for Sybase and other major databases consistently outperform Type 4 drivers in throughput and response time. While the performance of Type 4 JDBC drivers suffers within certain JVMs or within ORM or application server contexts, Connect Type 5 JDBC drivers for Sybase and other databases deliver consistently superior performance regardless of the JVM, the data access framework, or the number of concurrent users.
- Resource efficiency. Our JDBC Type 5 driver for Sybase minimizes CPU and memory use and can be tuned to fit specific runtime environment parameters or limits. The resource efficiency of the Connect JDBC Sybase driver enables a greater degree of server consolidation in virtualized environments.
- Rich, accessible functionality. Connect Type 5 JDBC drivers give your applications easy access to rich, driver-based functionality including load balancing, application failover, bulk loading, and statement pooling.
- Simpler administration. Unlike typical JDBC Type 4 drivers, our Type 5 driver for JDBC requires only a single JAR file to support multiple JVMs and multiple Sybase versions. Further, the Connect JDBC Sybase driver requires no proprietary extensions to the JDBC specification regardless of the environment or the functionality required by the application.
