The JDBC API consist of these 2 major interfaces sets:
- JDBC API, for application writers
- JDBC driver API, for driver writers
JDBC drivers fall in 1 of the four given categories. Given figure shows that applets & applications access databases through JDBC API, by using pure Java JDBC driver.
JDBC calls are converted by such kind of drivers to network protocol. This allows client machines to make a direct call to DBMS server and a particular solution is provided for intranet access.
