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.

Key Features

  • Provides tutorial-based instruction in key JDBC techniques, complemented by example code.
  • Centered around an incrementally developed example of a three-tiered application for a video rental e-commerce site.
  • Designed to help you tackle standard JDBC tasks: connecting your database to the Internet, displaying query results, using stored procedures, updating the database, storing metadata, carrying out transactions, working with binary large objects, implementing security, and more.

@qu:"A highly useful reference for students, educators, and professionals alike, who are learning to use JAVA and JDBC for interconnecting and using databases. The real world analogies and JDBC examples presented throughout the text direct the reader to the essential elements required to make the Java database connection function seamlessly within a user's application. I found the book easy to read, informative, and a great addition to standard course texts."
