Can I access data using Java?

The JDBC interface is an industry standard, designed specifically to access database systems. The JDBC classes are designed to connect to a database, request data using SQL statements, and return result sets that can be processed in the client application.

Normally, client applications use JDBC classes, and the database system vendor supplies a JDBC driver that allows the JDBC classes to establish a connection.

You can connect to SQL Anywhere from a client application via JDBC, using jConnect, or using the iAnywhere JDBC driver. SQL Anywhere also provides an internal JDBC driver that permits Java classes installed in a database to use JDBC classes that execute SQL statements. See SQL Anywhere JDBC API.
