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
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
