Ques : Need for JDBC

Ans :

Today, the most widely used interface to access database is ODBC. ODBC stands for Open
Database Connectivity. It is a standard in relational database connectivity published by
Microsoft (though originally developed jointly by Microsoft and Sybase). ODBC cannot be
used directly with Java program because it uses a Programming Language C interface and it
also makes use of Pointers which have been removed from Java. JDBC comes after the
ODBC but JDBC is a Java API and contains Java interface for working with SQL
