I think it works for beginners, but also the seasoned dev who wants to really get a good understanding of JDBC. From connection pools, query logging to transaction isolation levels. But it's written in a sequential way, i.e. you can work your way through it, step by step and get a whole lot of explanations along the way, if you are more of a beginner.

Thank you Do you explain the modern ways to get Connections, none of this Class.forName(...); stuff we used to have to use?

Yup. There's really no "legacy" information in it, all of it is modern 2020 JDBC stuff.

Why should beginners worry about legacy code? Do they even need to know there is such a thing as legacy code?

Nah, they shouldn't worry. I meant more "legacy" concepts like Class.forName etc. Anyhow
