From this place a connection to the database is made.
This enables a DriverManager class.
DriverManager is a class which belongs to java.sql package & this communicates with the driver using URL(Universal Resource Locator)
This class is used to manage JDBC drivers which are installed on our system.
To load JDBC drivers
Driver d = (Driver)class.forName(drivername).
The DriverManager controls the interaction between user interface & database driver
The Driver Manager can perform the following
Locate a driver for a particular database
Process JDBC initialization calls
Provide entry points to JDBC function for each specific driver
Perform parameter & sequence validation for JDBC calls
This is used to remove driver object from the current list
It assumes that there is no user name, password or any other database property which is needed for connection
getConnection(String url, Property argument)
It takes url & properties object which contains database properties which are needed for connection
getConnection(Sting url,String userid,String password)
It provides user name & password with url. The username identifies the user & his password & then only get connection
Allows to get drivers which are regitered. This method returns a Driver object.
It allows us to get arrays of driver object which are currently registered
