The JDBC API is the application programming interface that provides universal data access for the Java programming language. It includes the JDBC 1.0 API, which provides the basic functionality for data access.
The JDBC 2.0 API supplements the basic API with more advanced features and provides a standard way to access the latest object-relational features being supported by today’s relational database management systems. In addition, the new API includes features such as scrollable and updatable result sets and improved performance. It also extends JDBC technology beyond the client to the server with connection pooling and distributed transactions.
