JDBC: Practical Guide for Java Programmers is the quickest way to gain the skills required for connecting your Java application to a SQL database. Practical, tutorial-based coverage keeps you focused on the essential tasks and techniques, and incisive explanations cement your understanding of the API features you'll use again and again. No other resource presents so concisely or so effectively the exact material you need to get up and running with JDBC right away.
