I want to make a C# app query (select, insert, update, delete) a JDBC based database, specifically one called Derby by Apache. But I do not want to get a 3rd party anything for this.
Surely, someone has made a way to bridge C# to JDBC? I'd even consider raw socket programming, so long as it did not require downloading any 3rd party tools.

From your description, I'm not sure which kind of database you are using in your application.
Here are some relevant articles about connecting to SQL Server with the JDBC Driver, perhaps they can help you.

Thanks Lorris for the reply, but all of those links are from something else, other than C#/.NET, using JDBC, to SQL-Server and/or an otherwise ADO.NET compliant database.
I need the reverse, I need C#/.NET to connect to a JDBC based database, namely a Derby database. Do you know of any solution for this?

I had checked out Codemesh, and Easysoft, and a few others, but they were proprietary, to my knowledge, and required one to purchase a license.
I was hoping to find something free-ware. Also, the second link you gave "using JDBC from .NET article" did not come through, could you please repost that link.

second one was just formatted underline by TYPO, not a link

Ah, thanks again Lannie. Sadly, I'm still stuck, as codemesh is a licensed 3rd party product. It seems strange that no JDBC-Driver for ADO.NET exists. I'd even take pure socket communication to a JDBC/Derby based connection if I could.
I did find this: http://derby-net.win7dwnld.com/ and its link on source-forge here:
Sadly, this is still a 3rd party, with no source-code, so I can't trust it either.
