George Reese did an excellent job of providing a quick overview of the technologies and concepts require for developing an Enterprise System, beginning with the requirements for a true Enterprise System. The database is the heart of any enterprise system and Java provides strong, reliable database connectivity. He also covers basic SQL, intro to JDBC including its structure, alternatives, creating a connection, and basic database access. He then turns to more advanced JDBC including prepared statements,batch processing, rowsets, distributed transactions, and more.
In the second section, Applied JDBC, he covers topics such as JNDI, RMI, serialization, EJBs, system architecture (two-tier and three-tier), design patterns, distributed components, security, transaction handling, and other topics more peripherally related to JDBC, but necessary for developing an enterprise system. He also walks through an example distributed database application.
The final section of the book presents the JDBC Core API and the JDBC Optional Package as reference material.
The author's style of writing seemed very readable, clear and concise.
In summary, this 300-page book is a great introduction for those who want to approach Java distributed applications by way of database work as it discusses JDBC in the context of enterprise systems.

One warning about the book:
Many of the code examples lack comments on them, so they are so what difficult to read.
A magnificient life is loaded with tough challenges. En garde tiny ad:
