Using JDBC with Application Servers
JDBC is generally considered the most common way people expect to provide persistence to the J2EE application server platform. For more information on the JDBC application program interface, see JDBC.
Be sure to take a look at transparent persistence vs. JDBC call-level interface. This outlines some disadvantages of using JDBC that you should consider when designing persistence for J2EE.
Also, be sure to check out how JDBC can be part of integrated J2EE Architecture Solutions.
Using JDBC, as shown in this diagram, will require data conversion in either the application server or in the applications. See JDBC Data Conversion.
