three tier : Java Glossary
- three tier
A true three tier database access means you have application code running in both the
client and the server. The client and server application code exchange transactions.
The application code running on the server accesses the SQL (Standard Query Language)
database. dbAnywhere is a quasi-three tier database access. It runs on a server and
allows clients to speak the JDBC (Java Data Base Connectivity) dialect of
translates the requests into native SQL
dialects and hands them off to the SQL
server. There is no application specific code on the server.
