I want to ask what is the difference between SQL, MySQL, and JDBS
Where can I find good beginner guide to start using databases in java coding ? (ie, create a database, update it, read it, create tables, insert values .. etc)

  • SQL is a language for working with databases.
  • MySQL is free and open source database software.
  • JDBC is Java's standard API to program with databases.
