Response to: JDBC 2.0 Driver list

JDBC is just an API. Many of the JDBC drivers listed on Javasoft's Web site, and that are supposed to implement JDBC 2.0 capability indeed implement the API but:

a) throw an Exception when you invoke JDBC 2.0-specific methods. A typical example is the previous() method of ResultSet. Another could be the updateRow() method.

b) don't implement what the JDBC 2.0-specific technique is actually supposed to bring. A typical example is the batch update feature: the updates are often just sent one after the other.

I would be glad to hear about a successful experience with a solution other than Oracle. If I take the example of PostgreSQL, a JDBC 2.0 driver is indeed available, but doesn't implement SQLInput and SQLOutput. Hence...
