Was JDBC API available (publicly that is) back in Feb 1997.
Just curious.
Thanks.

I'll meet you half way. java.sql.* was added between JDK 1.0.2 and 1.1.8

You could get closer by downloading the individual JDKs from the archives, but I wasn't prepared to...
Now you need to show me that various dates of releases to complete the answer to your question...

Righty then... The dates page you need is here, so it looks like (according to your requirements), you want to know if JDBC was included in a version prior to JDK1.1.6
I still can't answer the question, but it is now possible to link the JDK version to the date of release...

Whoops, I didn't see you refered to FEB '97.
That means it has to be in the 1.1 (-point-zip as opposed to .8) version since 1.1.1 was released in March.
Current answer: no idea

I also have a JDK1.1 book (forget the exact name) at home that is actually a pre-1.1 book released while 1.0.8 was the standard release.
This book doesn't include the JDBC java.sql package either, so my guess would be "No, it didn't exist as of Feb 1997", but still don't have a final answer.
