Product Description

From the Back Cover

This book provides the definitive tutorial and reference to the JDBC™ API, the technology that enables universal data access for the Java™ programming language. This new edition has been updated and expanded to cover the entire JDBC 3.0 API, including the java.sql package and the javax.sql package, the package that facilitates building server-side applications.

Containing in-depth explanations that go beyond the specification, this complete resource pairs a step-by-step tutorial with a comprehensive reference to every class and interface.

For those new to Java technology, the book includes an introduction to the Java programming language and to SQL. It builds on this basic knowledge to walk you through the creation of a JDBC application--from setting up a database and establishing a connection to retrieving values from result sets and using prepared statements. In addition, the authors provide many examples along the way that demonstrate how to execute common tasks. The book then turns to more advanced topics, focusing on features such as scrollable and updatable result sets, batch updates, SQL99 data types, custom mapping, savepoints, statement pooling, automatically generated keys, and more.

In addition to in-depth coverage of the JDBC metadata API, the book gives you the latest information on rowsets, the technology that makes it possible to handle data sets as JavaBeans™ components. As an added bonus, you get a preview of the standard implementations for JdbcRowSet, CachedRowSet, WebRowSet, JoinRowSet, and FilteredRowSet objects.

From Array to XADataSource, an easy-to-use alphabetical reference provides concise but complete information on each class and interface in the JDBC API. Each entry includes an overview with usage examples as well as a comprehensive explanation of the methods and fields.

A chapter on mapping SQL types and types in the Java programming language, an appendix for driver writers, a summary of the new features in the JDBC 2.0 and 3.0 APIs, and a glossary complete this indispensable resource for all database programmers.

The Java™ Series is supported, endorsed, and authored by the creators of the Java technology at Sun Microsystems, Inc. It is the official place to go for complete, expert, and definitive information on Java technology. The books in this Series provide the inside information you need to build effective, robust, and portable applications and applets. The Series is an indispensable resource for anyone targeting the Java™ 2 platform.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Thomas Paul on 31 Oct. 2003
Format: Paperback
Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced JDBC programmer you will find useful information in this book. The book is divided into two sections. The first section is a tutorial on using JDBC which makes up four chapters. The tutorial starts with a look at JDBC 1.0. The next chapter looks at the additional features added to JDBC in 2.0 and 3.0. The third tutorial chapter looks at metadata. The final chapter examines the RowSet interface, which is complex enough to need its own chapter.
The remainder of the book (about 800 pages) is a reference containing a chapter for each class or interface in JDBC. Each chapter contains an overview of a class or interface, sections on anything of either special interest or complexity, and then a list of all the methods of the class or interface with complete descriptions. If a section applies to a particular version of JDBC, the version it applies to is clearly marked. The information contained in the reference is much more than you can find in the APIs. The reference section itself is well laid out to make the information you need easy to find.
This is probably the only JDBC book you will ever need. No matter which version of JDBC your database drivers support, you will find your answers in this book. The book is well written with clear explanations and plenty of code samples (which can be downloaded from the Sun web site) . Anyone working with JDBC will want this book by their side while they are coding.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 26 July 2001
Format: Paperback
I bought this book, because I wanted to know everything about transaction processing using JDBC . Well, all the fundamentals are in there!
So if you plan to use JDBC in your company for this purpose, you'll find a great tutorial and reference in this book. If you know about basic Java, this book teaches you all the fundamentals about JDBC from the very beginning to a complete transaction level.
The things I miss in this fine book: - An overview of well-known database implementations with their level of the JDBC-API support. There a not so many RDBMS's around that support everything yet. - An accompanying CD-ROM with a starter kit: A (free) RDBMS with some good working examples. - A chapter about how JDBC relates to the internet.
Despite these remarks it is a wonderful book that's well worth the investment, really!
Sincerely, Patrick Holthuizen

All examples are working, everything explained clearly and in detail, and it includes all features of JAVA 1.2. What else do you need? This is what a proper book should be like! If you understand basics of JAVA and interested to learn JDBC this is the best book for you available at the time.

The details that are needed. 28 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The full database connectivity and usage of the Java language is covered. With excellent code samples that appeal to all levels of programmers. I have used it to develope an inhouse delivery system and I am not a professional programmer. Very up to date with coverage of all the latest features of the API and what is due soon. EXCELLENT.

Highly Recommended 14 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Despite the complexity of JDBC in general, this book gives it to you in a clear, concise format that even a first time programmer would understand.
Although this book provides coverage of SQL and Java, it wouldn't hurt to familiarize yourself with them before picking this book up.

Recommended... 28 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book provides a lot of valuable background information and is complementary to the JDBC specification. This is a "must have" if you want to know more about the more complex topics of JDBC like scrollable result sets, datasources, connection pooling, etc.

Simply the best! 6 Sept. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you look for a good book on JDBC 2.0, this is "the" book. The book is complete, in fact, it covers both jdbc1.0 and 2.0. All topics are explained expertly with style and depth, and in a very accesible way so that beginners can understand. All the codes are clearly written to prove all the main points discussed in the book. This book is the best both for learning jdbc and a reference.
Since not all the features in JDBC2.0 have been adopted by vendors, this book will remain as "the" reference for many years to come.

An excellent reference for JDBC core & standard extensions 28 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book provides an excellent tutorial on JDBC 2.0 core features and standard extensions. In particular, the chapters on standard extensions (XA, connection pooling,...) provide unique step-by-step descriptions/examples that offer a top-down view of these features.
