I have been developing code in one form or another for over 10 years. I hve not written a line a java code a 18 months. For I have been developing in C while tuning DB2 and Oracle Databases. I have a very strong desire and work related need to get back into java & jdbc a.s.a.p. The ranch hs been very good to me back when 1.2.2 was in beta. I have just downloaded ver 1.4.1. Any ideas where I should begin?
