Data retrieval and storage is one of the most common components of J2EE applications. JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) is the Java API for accessing a SQL relational database and adding, retrieving, and updating data in the database.
Oracle JDeveloper is a developer-friendly integrated development environment (IDE) for building service-oriented applications using the latest industry standards for Java, XML, web services, and SQL. It supports the complete development lifecycle with integrated features for modeling, coding, debugging, testing, profiling, tuning, and deploying applications.
This book is about developing Java/J2EE applications with a database component in Oracle JDeveloper (version 10.1.3). It covers the practical aspects of JDBC (version 4.0); it will teach application developers about setting the environment for developing various JDBC-based J2EE applications and the procedure to develop JDBC-based J2EE applications. It will also explore the new features added in JDBC 4.0.
