This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Please don't post the same question in multiple forums. It makes answers harder to follow and wastes people's time answering the same question. I'll close this copy and we can continue discussion in the JDBC thread.
