  1. “Type 4 means that a JDBC driver can be deployed anywhere”
  2. “JDBC driver performance at 1 connection will scale linearly for 100s of them”

In every case, these assumptions are wrong—and potentially very harmful. In fact, they’re the source of many problems faced by organizations that use Java-based data-driven applications—and they’re why:

You owe it yourself to attend this Webinar.

If you’re like many Java developers and architects, you may not realize there’s a solution. The good news is that when you attend this Webinar, you will:

  • Discover that Progress DataDirect is now offering Type 5 JDBC drivers—they’re available today
  • See how Type 5 JDBC drivers from Progress DataDirect enables you to start accelerating your Java apps now
