Answer / janet

1.ODBC is for Microsoft and JDBC is for java applications.
2.ODBC can't be directly used with Java because it uses a C
interface.
3.ODBC makes use of pointers which have been removed
totally from java.
4.ODBC mixes simple and advanced features together and has
complex options for simple queries,But JDBC is designed to
keep things simple while allowing advanced capabilities
when required.
5.ODBC requires manual installation of the ODBC driver
manager and driver on all client machines.JDBC drivers are
written in java and JDBC code is automatically
installable,secure,and portable on all platforms.
6. JDBC API is a natural Java Interface and is built on
ODBC. JDBC retains some of the basic feature of ODBC

Answer / pradeep kumar

1. ODBC is procedural oriented and JDBC is object oriented.
2. ODBC is used to provide connection between front-end
(other than JAVA) and back-end (weak database like MS-
ACCESS) and JDBC is used to provide connection between JAVA
and database(oracle,sybase,DB2).

What is JDBC and ODBC and what are the differences between them?..

Answer / anshu aggarwal

JDBC is Java Database Connectivity. It enables java programs
to execute sql statements. JDBC makes it possible to write a
single database application that can run on different
platforms and interact with different DBMS. JDBC is language
dependent i.e it is used only to make connectivity with java.

ODBC is open database connectivity. The goal of ODBC is to
make it possible to access any data from any application,
regardless of which database management system (DBMS) is
handling the data so it is language independent.
