Is there a good JDBC book or tutorial out there that I can use to get started working with databases??
Does java use the same methods to interface with a DB2 database as it would and Oracle database or even *gulp* Access??

Try "Database Programming with JDBC and Java, 2nd Edition".
Click on the link below:
And yes, Java uses the same methods to access any database.

This review is a little outdated, but it's still relevant:
Personally, I would go through the JAVA JDBC tutorial, With JDBC, it's really important to try out the examples and see what works and doesn't work.
You'll start noticing that somethings will stop working, because of the driver implementation. This is especially true if you start using JDBC 2.0 and JDBC 3.0 functionality.
Good luck,
I agree. Here's the link:
