Why use JDBC?
JDBC is there only to help you (a Java developer) develop data access applications without having to learn and use proprietary APIs provided by different RDBMS vendors. You just have to learn JDBC and then you can be sure that you’ll be able to develop data access applications which can access different RDBMS using different JDBC drivers.
