Impact of JDBC use on transaction performance
If you wonder whether the style of use with JDBC API has an impact of performance, you might like to read my latest blog entry on Head Crashing Informatics. While the entry mostly is about tuning SQL Anywhere's BLOB handling performance, it contains an interesting aspect: There are three ways to deal with BLOBs in JDBC, and the performance difference is tremendous. While obvious for the JDBC gurus, it might be surprising for beginners.
