A value which, when written out in binary, has a meaning assigned to each digit, which can be 0 or 1. This is a very efficient way of storing a number of flags in a small amount of memory. When viewed in decimal it is a single number resulting from adding up the values of the individual bits, worth 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 and so on.
The name given to the architecture whereby one process (the server) keeps track of global data, and another (the client) is responsible for formatting and presenting the data. The client requests queries or actions be performed on the data by the server. Often these processes run on different hosts across a local-area network.
ODBC driver managers accept a connection string when a client connects. Ideally it contains all necessary attribute values to make the connection to a data source, but provision is made for the driver to negotiate with the application or the user for any missing information.
Dynamic Link Library. Windows' mechanism for shared object code. See also Shared Object.
Software whose main function is to load drivers. ODBC or JDBC applications request a DSN through the Driver Manager. The Driver Manager loads the driver specified in the DSN's configuration file. In Windows, the ODBC Data Source Administrator is used to set up the Driver Manager.
Data Source Name. A name associated with an ODBC data source. Driver Managers, such as unixODBC or the Microsoft Windows Driver Manager, use the Data Source Name to cross-reference configuration information and load the required driver.
A placeholder for a single datum in a record. For example, you can have a Surname field in a Contact Details record. Called a cell in Microsoft Access.
JDBC (Java DataBase Connectivity)
A Java API for database access based on the ODBCAPI, but includes an object-oriented interface to the underlying data source.
A subset of the Java Development Kit (JDK) which supports the execution (but not the development) of Java applications and consists of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), the core classes, and supporting files.
Software that interprets and executes the byte codes in Java class files like a microprocessor would execute machine code. There are many virtual machines available from different vendors and for different purposes.
ODBC (Open DataBase Connectivity)
A standard API for connecting application programs to relational database systems through a suitable driver. ODBC is available on a wide number of platforms and the Easysoft JDBC-ODBC Bridge allows the database and the application to reside on different machines across the network.
The term platform normally covers the hardware and operating system as a unit. For example, a PC running Microsoft Windows, a PC running BSD Unix, and a Sun system running Solaris are three different platforms.
A process performing the centralized component of some task, for example extracting information from a corporate database. See also Client/Server.

|Mysoft||My JDBC Application|
This table has two columns; vendor, and name. It has two rows: one corresponding to Easysoft JDBC-ODBC Bridge and the other corresponding to MySoft's Java application. The term table can also apply to just the definition of the table, without its data.
