  • 100% database-independent - no vendor-specific proprietary extensions.
  • The only Type 5 JDBC driver that supports Windows authentication for Microsoft SQL Server with an implementation that does not require loading external shared libraries (DLLs on Windows); DataDirect has a patent pending on this new exciting technology.
  • The only JDBC driver to offer distributed transaction support across all major databases.
  • Includes a JDBC Software Developer's Kit (SDK) that provides tools for troubleshooting and debugging your JDBC applications.
  • Certified under Sun Microsystems' J2EE Compatibility Test Suite (CTS).
  • Best performance and scalability in the market as measured by SPECjAppServer2002.
  • Award-winning 24x7 technical support to ensure rapid response to customer concerns (see the SupportLink website for more information).
