Video: Codeless Configuration in JDBC Drivers
Jesse Davis says that even if you're using Hibernate, you need to heed JDBC concerns. Many people say they don't need a JDBC driver because they have Hibernate, but they don't realize that the driver operates underneath Hibernate. Not planning what JDBC driver you'll use ahead of time can cause big problems, Davis said. In the future, Davis says that developers will be able to configure the drivers without having to worry about the framework on top of it. Progress Data Direct already has this "codeless configuration" feature with their drivers.
Jesse Davis is a Director of Development at Progress Data Direct. He is currently responsible for the Connect and Shadow z/Direct product lines, as senior engineering manager. Jesse has lead development efforts for a number of DataDirect Connect products, and has developed core modules for the Connect for ODBC and Connect for JDBC product groups.
