I am trying to choose between the following two books :
Oracle 9i JDBC Programming by Jason Price, 2002 and Expert Oracle JDBC Programming by R.M. Menon, 2005
Table of contents for both of them is almost similar except for the chapter in Jasons book about servlets, jsp and ejb. Both the books have only few but 5/5 star customer ratings. Any suggestions please? (I have a Oracle and Pl/SQL book from Oracle press but not with JDBC combination)
Preeti, I've read Menon's book. I haven't read the other, but the Amazon description says it includes coverage of Oracle Application Server. If you are planning to use this servers, that's probably a value add. If not, I think Menon's is a better fit because it focuses more on the database.
