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.
This might be a dumb question, but is there a reason why the DAO pattern is not in Head First Design Patterns? Or is it in there and called something else? I see that the upcoming OCJP 7 study guide will contain DAO and JDBC information, but I was curious if Sierra and Bates have anything currently in print that discusses DAO. Thanks so much!
