Good-monring...
I passed the SCJP2 last month.
#1 Software
Start with the Standard JDK. I'm using JDK1.3 at the present time. Start with the JDBC 1.0 standard 1st. After a few weeks you will have the basic knowledge to move on to the JDBC 2.0 standard.
#2 Database Software / Engine
Do not spend alot of time learning a new DB engine. If you are on a WIN95/98/NT platform. All you need besides the Standard JDK is ODBC. There is plent of code examples on the web. If you can not find them. Let me know....
#3 Books.
I would start with any of the books listed at the top of this form. Presently I'm reading the JDBC API Tutorial ... I have found this to be the best text I have read about java ...
if you are new to SQL the sql book is a good place to start.
I'm not pushing this sights texts... But, I have read two out of the three listed ... The 'JDBC API Tutorial...' is the most consice I have read to date.
Hear to Help...

Monty,
After some EFFORT I finally got my setup correct(os390)and am ready to code, I do have examples but can always use more. Can you add a short list of the "plenty of code examples on the web" you speak of.

I have posted a few examples over the past month or so...
Search this form for my username 'monty6'.
You will find ODBC, ORACLE, & DB2 examples.
If you are considering applets that use jdbc.
Please search this form and other's for 'policytool'.
Hope this helps, Monty6
