Hasan,
An excellent book for Oracle 10g is OReilly's book.

Before spending any money, check out the free documentation provided by Oracle. You can download all of it

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cds/B19306_01.zip

or browse it on-line.

http://www.oracle.com/pls/db102/homepage

JDBC is here

http://www.oracle.com/pls/db102/to_toc?pathname=java.102%2Fb14355%2Ftoc.htm&remark=portal+%28Application+development%29

The documentation set can be a bit dry, and very voluminous, so if you want a book to ease you into it then try the 10g Complete Reference.

I've read the book Chris suggested; in fact I wrote that review. If I was only buying one book, I would go with a book that just covered Oracle. Mainly because I like to try to avoid Oracle specific features. If you plan on writing stored procedures or otherwise tying yourself into Oracle, that is the book to choose though.

I haven't read The Complete Reference, so I can't compare either book to that.
