Does anyone know of a good online resource for a JDBC newbie (such as me), including all the how-to's, from installing whatever drivers are required thru to connecting to a database and retrieving resultsets.
Is the Sun Java Tutorial sufficient for this? Had a quick look and saw that it is based on the 1.1 SDK - is this too old?
Any advice much appreciated

Hi.
Newbie here likewise.
http://technet.oracle.com/docs/content.html
Very good documentation and there are sample codes on JDBC and SQLJ.
Also the Oracle Press books "Oracle9i JDBC Programming". I learned a lot from that.

Mark,
Sorry that this isn't exactly timely, but here are a number of links which might help you with your JDBC training (mind you, I can't prioritize this for you since I am just now embarking on evaluating these materials and seeing if there is anything else out there). Try these...
Java Technology Fundamentals newsletter - look at the first item!
JDBC 2.0 Fundamentals
Managing database connections with JDBC
JDBC DB Access - one of the trail series books from Sun
Hopefully this will get you started if you haven't found the materials by now. Good Luck and let us know if you found anything else which helped you out!
Janet
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
