This is a comprehensive guide to using Java for accessing and using databases on Intranets and the Internet. The book covers several ways of doing this: using a new specification called JDBC (Java Database Connectivity - the Sun Microsystems specification), or using a tried-and-tested specification called ODBC (Object Database Connectivity - the Microsoft specification) using Java. JDBC has been the subject of much hyperbole. It is likely to be the tool of choice, but it has not been put to use yet so no one can be sure. Version 1.0 is released, but there are no drivers tools, or databases that support it yest so much is still unknown. This title covers the first real implementations. ODBC offers a known way of accessing and using databases coupled with Java. ODBC may prove to be better than JDBC. The book gives equal weight to both. There is also important coverage of SQL, the backbone of both technologies. The CD includes test-driven demos of commercial software and sample code in C, Java and SQL code written for specifications that can be put immediately to work.

This newest entry into the phalanx of JDBC books ranks among the best. If you're trying to code a JDBC program and want to see only working examples of key program pieces, The Complete Guide to Java Database Programming is the book you want. This guide covers connections, inserts, deletes, and most everything else that database applications and applets must do. Even better, all the source code appears on the book's CD-ROM and is ready for experimentation or copying into your own programs.
In addition to teaching you how to use JDBC, The Complete Guide to Java Database Programming also informs you why you should use the suite. The book starts with some conceptual chapters that explain the peculiarities of transacting with a database across a TCP/IP network. However, author Matthew Stiple quickly gets into stride and shows you step by step how to connect to and do things with a remote database, without treating you like an imbecile. He explains connections, the various statement objects, SQL, and several results of objects in loving detail. Siple gives metadata interfaces more attention than most books do and also covers advanced concepts. He walks you through the process of creating what he calls DataBeans, which are JavaBeans--compliant modules that you can reuse to create many different databases. He also explains how to create a database browser that you can use to browse any SQL92 database. The book wraps up with a java.sql.* API reference. The Complete Guide to Java Database Programming is the best JDBC book out there, albeit by a narrow margin. Though you may want to look elsewhere for really advanced information, this one's a good bet for your bookshelf.From the Back Cover:
Unleash the power of JFBC API to access any database with unprecedented ease
Ready to exploit the flexibility and strength of Java by building applications that interact with a SQL database server? Here are all the tools needed by any experienced developer or programmer to master the Java Database Connectivity Application Programming Interface (JDC API)--systems. Step by step, with real-world exercises and examples, Matthew Siple shows how to design and build database assess and management application using the JDBC API.
Using this book and CD-ROM, you'll proceed from the basics right through to the development of your own database browser:
