Java Database Programming with JDBC

Java Database Programming with JDBC | Welcome to the future of database connectivity. The Java Database Connectivity ( JDBC ) specification is a new basis for developers to interface with data sources. The structure of the JDBC is designed to allow developers to program for a standard interface, and let the low-level JDBC driver for different databases deal with the connection and querying of the databases; hence, the developer does not need to worry about dealing with different SQL flavors for each database. The JDBC is also very flexible—a developer doesn’t necessarily lose features specific to the target database. Best of all, the JDBC is based on the Java language!

The Internet has spurred the invention of several new technologies in client/server computing—the most recent of which is Java. Java is two-dimensional: It’s a programming language and also a client/server system in which programs are automatically downloaded and run on the local machine (instead of the server machine). The wide embrace of Java has prompted its quick development. Java includes Java compilers, interpreters, tools, libraries, and integrated development environments (IDEs). Javasoft is leading the way in the development of libraries to extend the functionality and usability of Java as a serious platform for creating applications. One of these libraries, called Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), is the Java Database Connectivity API, or JDBC. Its primary purpose is to intimately tie connectivity to databases with the Java language.

We’ll discuss the reasoning behind the JDBC in this chapter, as well as the design of the JDBC and its associated API. The Internet, or better yet, the technologies used in the operation of the Internet, are tied into the design of the JDBC. The other dominant design basis for the JDBC is the database standard known as SQL. Hence, the JDBC is a fusion of three discrete computer areas: Java, Internet technology, and SQL. With the growing implementation of these Internet technologies in “closed” networks, called intranets, the time was right for the development of Java-based enterprise APIs. In this book, intranet and Internet are both used to describe the software technology behind the network, such as the World Wide Web. Download free Java Database Programming with JDBC.pdf here
