None. JDBC is the same across databases. The exam doesn't cover the "how to connect" differences between databases.

You can use whichever database you want for testing/learning.

I guess JDBC chapter from 'Core Java' (Horstmann-Cornell) is more than enough - however, it's not focused on OCPJP, and won't have certification-type questions in it.

And Welcome to CodeRanch!

Maybe I didn't said it clear - what I wanted to mean is - OCPJP 7 does contain JDBC, however, JDBC chapter of Core Java is not focused on OCPJP 7 exam, and that chapter won't contain OCPJP 7 specific questions.

Also, since the chapter would contain lot of extra things as well, you would need to filter our out which part to go through and which part to skip. However, that chapter is very nice and concise.

Also, I forgot to mention this book. I haven't referred it, but as it is from Oracle Press, I think it contains everything from OCPJP syllabus. MY mistake - this book is not yet released

I hope this helps.

The best resource for JDBC from the exam point of view is the JDBC Tutorial on Oracle website . It is covers all you need for the exam. Specially the RowSets part. No need to read the "Using Advanced Data Types" section (again, if you are reading just for the exam.) The questions in the exam are straight from this content.

There are no sample questions to help you test your knowledge but that you can get elsewhere

HTH,
Paul.

Paul, i know what you're talking about I've bought Ent.OCPJP 7 mock exam already, but hadn't tried it yet. I'm a little bit nervous about it, because there is no statistics from people who prepared for the real exam with your tests.

WBR, nervous ocjp student
