JDBC API support

The JDBC driver contains the core JDBC 3.0 APIs and some extended features. The JDBC 3.0 API includes the java.sql package, which contains the core APIs, and the javax.sql package, which contains the extended features of JDBC 3.0.
The OpenEdge SQL Engine supports the Java Transaction API (JTA) of the J2EE framework architecture. Support for JTA enables the OpenEdge database to participate in distributed SQL transactions. With distributed JTA transactions, the OpenEdge database takes the role of the resource manager in the J2EE framework, and relies on an external transaction manager to coordinate the commit or rollback of the distributed transactions.
For a complete list of the APIs supported by the JDBC driver, see OpenEdge Data Management: SQL Reference.
