 Developer cant afford $1000 driver

Ok, I want to introduce my self to jdbc, but all the drivers I've seen cost
$1000 and up. My setup includes a peer to peer connection running MS-Sql.

Does anyone know of any jdbc drivers available that can perform only basic
database operations, and that does not have a trail period, and that does not
cost $1000 and up?

Also---
Are any of you reselling software which includes $1000 and up drivers? How do
you tell your boss that you've just added $1000 to the cost of your software?

Thanks

How about changing the database? There is a free JDBC driver
for Oracle and for little bit more than $1000 you can buy Oracle for NT.

Scott,
this is a very good topic to discuss on!
I'm running in the same problem and I'm still looking for
an affordable *.dbf jdbc driver ! I have to put on the market an
application
that should cost to the client less then 80 bucks and and all the JDBC
driver vendors I've heard asked me about 150-200 $ each license !
How can I tell the customers that the programm will cost 80 bucks but
the have to spent an extra 200 to access their DBs ?

I think that a lot of JDBC driver makers are taking advantage of the
fast
growing market and of the high demand of JDBC connectivity today
Time and competition perhaps will cut down prices, I hope.

regards

The combination of Win95, Access, and the JDBC/ODBC bridge will do the
trick whilst you're learning.  But I wouldn't use it for real work ;-)

If you're of a Unix frame of mind, how about Solid Server on Linux
with their JDBC driver?  I believe it's free for personal use
(although that may have been a special offer which is now over).

Use the JDBC/ODBC bridge.
If you need client/server, we've got something free, based on RMI:
download RmiJdbc at http://dyade.inrialpes.fr/mediation/download.

Scott - take a look at JDBCLite at http://www.softsyn.com/JDBCLite. Its
inexpensive and works against any ODBC database. You can see an online demo
running on the web site.

There is a ODBC driver for JDBC available at the JavaSoft
web site.  It's free.

Most companies will make licensing deals for software products that
are resold.  Talk to the sales rep from the particular company.

Hi Scott

If you get Visual CAfe for Java 2.5 Database Developer Edition it comes
with a 100% JDBC-compatible middleware product which has unlimited
conntections and users and native drivers for Oracle, Sybase, SQL
Server, Informix and ODBC. It can also target native JDBC if you have a
type 4 driver. More info on the wbesite below.
