Anyone have a book recommendation?

Can anyone recommend a book that does a good job of teaching about Java programming with regards to databases? More specifically I am using Oracle for my database and I am looking at learning about connectivity issues (JDBC).

Thanks

Avijit, thank you. I will look at those links that you have posted (I am also doing the Sun JDBC tutorial). I am looking for a hard copy so that when I�m traveling I would have something to read at the airport and on the plane. Also, the boss is paying for the book .

I wanted to ask here at the ranch because, well, it's simply the best place on the internet to find out about java stuff (IMHO). Java ranch is where I found out about the Head First series of books - which are the best books I've ever read for teaching anything. I highly recommend them for anyone who needs to learn Servlets/JSP, Java, Design Patterns... They don't seem to me as if they are meant for reference manuals, but for teaching, I haven�t found better.

Chris,
Why, thank you!

In the Bunkhouse, we have a particular page for database related books.

A good introduction would be "Database Programming with JDBC and Java, 2nd Edition." If you want to learn Oracle specific stuff, go for "Java Programming with Oracle JDBC." Both of these are described in the Bunkhouse and received a review of 9. Both are also O'Reilly books (same publisher as the Head First books) so you know they are good!

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I don�t know why I didn�t think about the Bunkhouse! I�m headed there now.
