Are there any good books that will help me learn JDBC?
John Zukowski If you already know SQL, the JDBC API Tutorial and Reference, Second Edition : Universal Data Access for the Java 2 Platform book is probably the best of the bunch. It covers the original JDBC 1.x capabilities like statements and resultsets as well as the newer JDBC 2.0 capabilies like updatable cursors, BLOBS/CLOBS, as well as rowsets.
If you don't know SQL (Structured Query Language), I like the SQL Database Programming with Java book. While around 2 years old now, it will get you started with database development with Java.
