Once again I ask publicly, why jConnect costs $2,00 per copy
of Sybase SQL Server it is used to access. In other words,
for each IP address I use to access a Sybase SQL Server, I must pay an
additional $2,000.

This is not a good model for me. Does anyone have other viewpoints?

IBM delivers their JAVA support for free with DB2.

Will Sybase consider such an option?

Yea it is too much money, but in this market there's java based software
that is more expensive as well as less.. Why don't you write your own
like I have. JDK 1.1 includes java.sql.*, using that you *can* write
your own interface.. who knows you may be able to sell it for
$2,000...:-) You can also make it rdbms independent and therefore
service the bulk of rdbms servers out there. A copy of Network
Computing, I think it is late May or early June has a JDBC write up
comparing JDBC and JBDC/ODBC bridges. interesting
