Everything you ever wanted to know about JDBC! (well almost),
By A Customer
This review is from: JDBC API Tutorial and Reference: Universal Data Access for the Java 2 Platform (Java Series) (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
