After the driver has loaded and registered itself with the DriverManager, the ListEmployees class can attempt to connect to the database server, as shown in the following code fragment:All JDBC connections start with the DriverManager. The DriverManager class offers a static method called getConnection() that is responsible for creating a connection to the database. When you call the getConnection() method, the DriverManager must decide which JDBC driver to use to connect to the database; that decision is based on a URL (Uniform Resource Locator) that you pass to getConnection().The first component in a JDBC URL is always jdbc. When using the Advanced Server JDBC Connector, the second component (the driver) is edb.jdbc:edb:<database>jdbc:edb://<host>/<database>jdbc:edb://<host>:<port>/<database>
The host name of the server. Defaults to localhost.
