I would like to develop an application that could be connected to different types of databases (Access, Oracle, Interbase, SQL Server, Sybase, DB2, MySQL ...).
I thought of the following solutions:
1) To develop an application with Visual Basic (or Visual C++) using ODBC and a standard SQL (SQL2 but using just the functions understood by the main Access, Oracle, SQL Server, Interbase, MySQL ...).
2) to develop an application in Java using JDBC that seems to be the most portable tool for different types of databases
3) I am listening to any solution or comments that you could help me
