ODBC is for microsoft and JDBC is for Java.
JBDC is portable across platforms where ODBC is not.

Also, a quick Google search shows 32,900 hits for “Difference between ODBC and JDBC”.
Thank you. I have seen all of those in my search already. I guess I was just looking for something more technical in nature and less forum style.
I appreciate it!
ODBC is for lots more than just MicroSoft products. ODBC is the initial ism for Open Data Base Connectivity (or Communication).
Up above it says ODBC is not portable across platforms. Not knowing exactly what is meant, I don’t want to arbitrarily disagree, but ODBC can be used between many different platforms including other than MicroSoft, e.g. UNIX, OS/400, LINUX, even OS/2 used ODBC.
There are many times when JDBC & ODBC will work together to bridge the gap between separate hardware and operating systems and different data bases.
