Description - JDBC Pocket Reference by Donald Bales

JDBC - the Java Database Connectivity specification - is a complex set of application programming interfaces (APIs) that developers need to understand if they want their Java applications to work with databases. JDBC is so complex that even the most experienced developers need to refresh their memories from time to time on specific methods and details. But, practically speaking, who wants to stop and thumb through a weighty tutorial volume each time a question arises? The answer is the JDBC Pocket Reference, a data-packed quick reference that is both a time-saver and a lifesaver. This reference offers quick look-ups 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. You'll find documentation of the connect string formats for the most common databases, including Oracle, SQL-Server, and PostgreSQL. You'll even find information on working with large objects, and on using SQL 99 user defined datatypes to work with object-relational data. Searching for this sort of material through large tutorials is frustrating and a waste of time, but this pocket-sized book is easy to take anywhere and makes finding the information you need a snap.
