About This Book

This book describes how to use the Caché JDBC driver, which enables you to connect to Caché from an external application (such as a development tool or report writer) via JDBC, and allows Caché to access external JDBC data sources.

Who This Book Is For

To use the Caché JDBC driver, you should be familiar with the Java programming language and have some understanding of how Java is configured on your operating system. If you are performing custom configuration of the Caché JDBC driver on UNIX®, you should also be familiar with compiling and linking code, writing shell scripts, and other such tasks.

Organization of This Book

This book contains the following chapters:

  • Introduction to Caché JDBC provides basic information about the Caché JDBC driver, and demonstrates how to set up and use a simple Caché JDBC application.

  • Establishing JDBC Connections gives a detailed description of the various ways to establish a JDBC connection to a Caché database.

  • Accessing JDBC Databases provides some simple examples that show how to access and manipulate data in a Caché database from a Java application using the Caché JDBC driver.

  • Using the Caché SQL Gateway with JDBC describes how to access external databases from Caché using JDBC and the Caché SQL Gateway.

  • Using the Caché Hibernate Dialect provides information on how to use Hibernate, an open source utility that acts as a wrapper around JDBC to provide object/relational mapping (ORM) services.

  • Caché JDBC Compliance lists all members of the JDBC API, describes all Caché-specific additional features of the Caché JDBC driver, and indicates which optional features have been omitted.
