Answers for Day 8, “Setting Up Macintosh and Windows for Database Interaction”

1: What database connection types are available?
A1: The primary types of connections are ODBC Data Sources, ADO connection strings, CFML data sources, and JDBC drivers.
2: How can Macintosh users access ODBC-based data sources?
A2: Macintosh users access ODBC sources transparently by connecting through the application server. They can also use the RmiJDBC software to connect to any ODBC data source available on a Windows machine.
3: What systems does MySQL work on?
A3: Almost any. MySQL is an Open Source piece of software that is available for Windows and a wide variety of Unix systems, including Solaris, Linux, and Mac OS X.
4: What happens if you don't run RmiJdbc as a service?
A4: RmiJdbc must be run as a service under NT if you want it to start at reboot. If the software is not run as a standalone process, you must remain logged in and the command window where the process is started must remain open at all times.
5: Where do you install JDBC drivers on the Macintosh?
A5: The Macintosh expects classes to be installed in the MRJClasses directory. The easiest way to do this is to search for the directory with Sherlock. You can also find it under the System Folder:Extensions:MRJ Libraries folder. Windows users can install classes anywhere that is defined in the CLASSPATH environment variable.
