Type 3 to the rescue

In this article, we showed you our type 3 JDBC driver's architecture. The driver constitutes both client- and middle-tier components, and it employs RMI to communicate between the client and server tiers. We also demonstrated how the client tier's various objects maintain reference to the corresponding remote objects in the server tier.

In Part 2, we will show how to use and deploy the type 3 driver created here. We'll offer a sample application and sequence diagrams to show how a driver loads, how to retrieve a JDBC Connection, and how to create a JDBC Statement.
