No its not multithreaded

No. The JDBC-ODBC Bridge does not support concurrent access from different threads. The JDBC-ODBC Bridge uses synchronized methods to serialize all of the calls that it makes to ODBC. Multi-threaded Java programs may use the Bridge, but they won't get the advantages of multi-threading. In addition, deadlocks can occur between locks held in the database and the semaphore used by the Bridge.

JDBC-ODBC Bridge is a multithreaded system as it allows the applications that are written in Java language to use the JDBC API with many existing ODBC drivers. The Bridge acts like a driver that is based on JDBC technology and also called as JDBC driver. It is defined in the class sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver. The Bridge also defines the JDBC sub-protocol ODBC which considered to be having a transitional solution to provide flexibility to the system. JDBC-ODBC is used in various ways due to platform independent nature of it. It allows user to create programs that can easily adapt to pure java drivers.
