To deploy a client application that runs against a network database server, you must provide each end user with the following items:
Client application The application software itself is independent of the database software, and so is not described here.
Database interface files The client application requires the files for the database interface it uses (.NET, ADO, OLE DB, ODBC, JDBC, embedded SQL, or Open Client).
Connection information Each client application needs database connection information.
The interface files and connection information required varies with the interface your application is using. Each interface is described separately in the following sections.
The simplest way to deploy clients is to use the Deployment wizard. For more information, see Using the Deployment wizard.
