Java Database Development with Oracle is a hands-on book for Java developers who want to learn how use Oracle and integrate it with their Java applications. It assumes an intermediate knowledge of Java and no knowledge of Oracle. This book is segmented into three parts. Part One begins by investigating how and why databases relate to object-oriented programming with Java. Introductory chapters on the Oracle database, SQL and other Oracle features, including its object-relational support, lay the groundwork for the chapters that follow. Part Two presents thorough coverage of the essential Java technologies for database programming, with chapters on SQLJ, JDBC and JDO (Java Data Objects). Part Three takes a higher-level view of application architecture and considers the role of Oracle in enterprise applications, particularly with regard to EJB (Enterprise Java Beans) and the J2EE framework.Gallardo, David is the author of 'Java Oracle Database Development' with ISBN 9780130462183 and ISBN 0130462187.
