Amazon Review

The Java Database Connectivity classes (JDBC) sensibly provide an interface between a platform-independent programming language (Java) and a standardised database language (Structured Query Language, or SQL). Pretty much every Java program that is involved in transactions or other business operations connects to a database through JDBC, so familiarity with the JDBC classes can magnify your other Java skills.

Database Programming with JDBC and Java explains how JDBC fits into unitised software applications in which various functional parts communicate over a network. author George Reese also shows how to write programs that take advantage of the JDBC classes, emphasising the most commonly used ones (such as those that perform INSERT and SELECT operations) but also giving the more obscure classes their due.

This book is essentially an ongoing lecture of increasing complexity. To cite one thread, it begins with clear but academic examples that involve discrete transactions (opening a connection, performing a query and closing the connection). It then moves on to connection pooling and other JDBC-supported optimisations for the real world. A menagerie of specialised sections on such topics as security and persistence rely heavily on long code examples. A section on Swing programming seems kind of out of place, but is short.

In sum, this slim volume is a great introduction to JDBC for those looking to approach Java-distributed applications by way of database work. --David Wall --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

This book describes the standard Java interfaces that make portable object-oriented access to relational databases possible, and offers a robust model for writing applications that are easy to maintain. The second edition has been completely updated for JDBC 2.0, and includes reference listings for JDBC and the most important RMI classes. The book begins with a quick overview of SQL for developers who may be asked to handle a database for the first time, and goes on to explain how to issue database queries and updates through SQL and JDBC. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
