Thin Driver in JDBC

The thin driver converts JDBC calls directly into the vendor-specific database protocol. That is why it is known as thin driver. It is fully written in Java language.

This thin driver uses the following three information to connect with a database.

  • Ip address of a machine (system), where the database server is running.
  • Port number of the database server.
  • Database name, also called SID (service ID).

  • Thin driver is the fastest driver among all Jdbc drivers.
  • No software is required at client side or server side.
  • It is portable driver because it is platform independent.
  • It can be used to connect an applet with the database.

Disadvantage of Thin driver

  • Thin driver is a database dependent driver.

Why thin driver is database dependent driver ?

Because thin driver internally uses native protocol. Native protocol is a server dependent protocol it means the protocol can establish connection with a particular server only.
