This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
sorry to say , but there are no shortcuts to learn , but i would suggest you to do some small examples on JDBC with Roseindia or similar sites . and then if you have any queries , you can freely post them and as usual people here are always ready to help (Thanks to Code Ranch Creator or CEO for this )
