They are not directly comparable. However I would venture that JDBC is
comparable to the C++ speed for most applications, as you will be waiting on
I/O. In my opinion, there are more class libraries out there for doing
web-based applications in Java, but more C++-based class libraries for doing
thick-client type applications, so that might skew what the appropriate

These classes for the most part come built-in with JDBC.
