About This Book
This book describes how an InterSystems IRIS® programmer can add SQL adapters to a production, so that the production can communicate with JDBC or ODBC-compliant databases. You should be aware of the particular limitations (syntactical or otherwise) of the database to which you are connecting, as well as the database driver that you use to do so; this book does not include such information.

Using the InterSystems ODBC Driver describes how to use InterSystems ODBC, which enables you to connect to InterSystems IRIS from an external application via ODBC, and allows InterSystems IRIS to access external ODBC data sources.
Using Java with the InterSystems JDBC Driver describes how to connect to InterSystems IRIS from an external application using the InterSystems JDBC driver, and how to access external JDBC data sources from InterSystems IRIS.
Using the Java Gateway in Productions explains how to enable easy interoperation between InterSystems IRIS and Java components.
