The JDBC Pocket Reference offers quick lookups for all methods of the standard JDBC classes. These include concise reviews of the procedures for common JDBC tasks such as connecting to a database, executing stored procedures, executing DDL and the like.
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 JDBC(TM) API makes it possible to access databases and other data sources from the Java(TM) programming language. This book, which updates and expands previous editions, presents the definitive description of the complete JDBC(TM) 3.0 API. The 3.0 version of the JDBC API incorporates all previous versions and adds new features to round out the technology.
In mid-1999, Addison-Wesley will be publishing a successor to JDBC Database Access with Java, the only JDBC book endorsed by Java Software. The new book, tentatively titled JDBC: Universal Data Access for the Java 2 Platform, builds on the first book, adding reference material and tutorials for the new JDBC 2.0 API, including both core and Standard Extension APIs. The following article, written by Maydene Fisher, one of the authors, previews some of the new features that will be examined in the upcoming book.
The new JDBC Standard Extension API, an integral part of Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) technology, allows you to write distributed transactions that use connection pooling, and it also makes it possible to connect to virtually any tabular data source, including files and spread sheets.
