Keep looking for another book


I got this book from a co-worker, who got it from another co-worker, who got it from a third coworker. None of like this book. No one wants the book back. Yes, we're all skilled users. None of us would be considered novice Office users. I intend to get rid of it. I think it's company property or I'd offer to give it away. The example I tried to follow, using a List Box, was incorrect. The references did follow the actual List Box properties. There were significant discrepancies. In short, the example could not work. So, keep looking. There must be something better out there.
If I find it I'll let you know.

Title: JDBC API Tutorial and Reference, Third Edition

an exceptionally comprehensive volume


JDBC is one of the most mature and widely used Java APIs. Even after the arrival of more recent tools and technologies like EJB's CMP and JDO, JDBC still remains a simple, fast, and reliable way of storing objects' state in an RDBMS. While conceptually this technology is quite straightforward, its evolution has made it more complex and voluminous. Many books have been trying to explain the main aspects of it over and over again, but the 3rd edition of "JDBC API Tutorial and Reference" goes far beyond that. The book is divided into two major sections: the Tutorial and the Reference. Actually, there are four tutorials in the Part One: Basic, Advanced, MetaData, and Rowset. Here well-written explanations are followed by clear and detailed examples. It is remarkable that Part Two, The Reference, is not your typical API reference with simply method signatures or redundant explanations of their arguments. This is an extremely well thought through description of how to use JDBC 3.0 API to achieve a particular goal. Every class has a solid overview, examples, schemas -- everything one needs to get the job done. The book also contains an Appendix for JDBC driver developers and another Appendix covering JDBC 3.0 API changes. This book provides the most clear and comprehensive JDBC coverage that I have ever seen. It is not just a matter of its size of over 1200 pages, but although the result of a well designed book structure and clear delivery.

Parents should read this book!


My kids play video games and I was worried until I read this book. They love Game Boys and Nintendo, leading me to think that the only skill they'd have as grown-ups would be designing the darn things. Now I understand that there are actually PRACTICAL, MARKETABLE SKILLS they are developing. A great and hopeful look into the future of our children! Easy to read and QUICK for parents without a lot of spare time. If your kids play video games, buy this book, you won't regret it. Tell your teachers too.
