This hands-on guide shows Java developers how to access data with the new 3.0 Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API, use LDAP-enabled directory services with Java Network Directory Services (JNDI), and manipulate XML data using Java APIs for XML Processing (JAXP).
Pick up this book to acquire the skills needed to effectively create Java applications that can access a variety of data sources. Learn the basics of JDBC 3.0 and how it relates to the Java programming language as a whole. Then from this base, build your knowledge by reading about common advanced uses such as connection pooling, JSP implementations, and Enterprise JavaBeans.
You will also gain an awareness of several object oriented design patterns for implementing JDBC solutions, and gain a knowledge of JNDI and how to use it to store and retrieve data using LDAP. You may even find this book of some use if you sit on the other side of the interviewer’s table: Please use it to take inspiration for some questions to ask in an interview.
