Guys,
Can you suggest some good JDBC book for my friend. I havent used any book for JDBC (I guess I need one ), so I couldn't help him. He knows quite a bit of JDBC.
Thanks

Hi,
It depends on the level of knowledge too..
JDBC(TM) API Tutorial and Reference: Universal Data Access for the Java(TM) 2 Platform (2nd Edition)
This is a good book for a beginner. Deals all APIs with examples. Check the latest edition.

Additionally I would suggest this book too... ( I haven't gone thru thoroughtly.Check it out in Amazon.com)
JDBC: Practical Guide for Java Programmers
One more suggestion I have use the resources in the net extensively. Here we get a lot of latest news, programs and drivers etc.

My personal favorite book on JDBC has been The "JDBS API Tutorial and Reference", 2nd Ed. by White, et al. I found this the more useful for both learning and as a regular reference. I have compared it to other sources.

Welll, given that the third edition has now come out, that's what I'd recommend. They gave it a good polish and scrub and covered JDBC 3.0. I must, however, confess that I have a personal interest in this book and am by no means unbiased. Don't let that deter you though

I also have ever used the second edition and that was really fantastic... I guess the third edition would be better than the second edition...
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
