I feel that I'm starting to get a good hold of the java language, but now I want to go on to databases, however, I have searched countless book stores and I can't find a book that assumes no knowledge of databases combined with Java programming. I'm a database virgin. What I'm looking for is something like the PHP with MySQL combination books, but with java instead of PHP. Anyone know of anything? I'll keep looking until I hear, thanks.

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

IMHO, learning JDBC is easy when compared to SQL. I would recommend just learning SQL. I would recommend writing straight SQL scripts first -- then worry about how to connect to it from Java.


Books: Java Threads, 3rd Edition, Jini in a Nutshell, and Java Gems (contributor)
