If you want to use JDBC you may need to read this:

Advantages could be the wrong starting point for you.
I think you may need to consider your environment, platform, tools, API, etc.
If you're in Java, then JDBC could provide a more natural interface, although it is still built on ODBC, so if you have a prior experience with ODBC you may find it helpful.

You may find more information in these references:
