JDBC is an database driver specification for Java. Like ODBC in the C
world, JDBC allows java applications to transparently use different
JDBC compliant databases without any source code changes. PostgreSQL,
the database PostGIS is written for, comes with a driver that
follows this specification.
The purpose of the JDBC Driver extension is to give the PostgreSQL
JDBC driver some understanding of the PostGIS data types (Geometry,
Box3D, Box2D). Without this, the Application can only get byte arrays
or strings (binary and text representation, rsp.) and has to parse it
on its own. When registering this extension, the Application can
simply call getObject(column) on the result of the query, and get a
real java object that is modeled after the OpenGIS spec. It also can
create or modify this objects itsself and then pass them into the
database via the PreparedStatement.setObject() method.
