I tried to search for JDBC book. Most of them sounds like they are going to be a big help.
In my project, we are using Oracle however we are only concerned with frontend and not the database stuffs in details however i would like to know if there is any handy book/notes/material available so that i would get a basic stuff about JDBC and get a hang of it.
