I have the O'Reilly book titled Database Programming with JDBC and Java second edition. It was published in 2000. Is this seriously outdated now, and if so, do you know of a better book I can find.

Thanks again for your help,


Teaching yourself anything is always the cheapest way, but it definitely takes a lot of time and effort.<br /> <br />Thank you javaranch <a href="http://""" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Learn How to Ask Your Question</a> and be nice

I would suggest JDBC API Tutorial and reference Third ed. from Sun. This is the best one can ask for.
