Data Access Object (DAO) is a design pattern nothing specific to J2EE.
For more try IBM developerworks: Advanced DAO Programming

See also: http://daoexamples.sourceforge.net/

There is also a good book "Java Transaction Processing".

I found "Java Transaction Processing" to be a bit more advanced. Once you have the JDBC/DAO basics and are interested in transactions, it is a good read.
