Java / JDBC
What is the role of DriverManager in JDBC?
DriverManager is a factory class that is responsible for maintaining the single instance of each registered driver. DriverManager eliminates having multiple instances of the same driver.
The DriverManager acts as a registry and provides lookup mechanism by taking the connection URL and finding the suitable driver for it. When a driver understands the URL, DriverManager passes the URL to it to create the database connection.
