I like java and i learned it and took up SCJP6 and cleared it with a good percentage.
I am not good at database...I want to learn about database and i am not sure how to start and where to start from.
I request you guys to help me out and guide me..

One book I liked was "Beginning MySQL" by Sheldon and Moes. Although it is directed at MySQL it includes a nice introduction to SQL. My copy is however dated 2005 and MySQL has moved on a lot since 2005, but you can probably find a second-hand copy for a very reasonable price somewhere.

What database are you using to learn? I find the better intro books to use are the ones that use the same tools as you.
Actually i am a "layman" in terms of database and different types of database. Thats why i ended up with such a question....
So i am banking on you guys...
Right now i working as a tester for a web application. And i want to move to the development team. But the application that i am testing is build on PHP. So i think asking that dev team for a advice would not be a good idea. So i wanted to ask somebody who is from java background so that their advice would be helpful to nurture my career.
Hope i am clear to you guys and what i am looking for you.
