JDBC Workbook

If you enjoyed my Java & Databases & What is JDBC? articles, you're going to love what I am currently working on.

"JDBC - Workbook" is a short book I'm writing that covers things like:

  • Understanding embedded databases & connection pools, like H2 and HikariCP.
  • How to write SQL (selects, inserts, updates, deletes) with plain JDBC. Including more advanced topics like batching.
  • Transactions: How auto-commit and database transactions work on the JDBC level and how frameworks like Spring use that for their @Transactional support.
  • The different types of locking (optimistic, pessimistic) as well as the dreaded deadlock.
  • Why JDBC is so important, even with the many available Java database frameworks.

...all through a series of practical examples, detailed explanations, and exercises at the end of each chapter that make you immediately practice what you learned.

Leave your email below and I'll send chapter previews & production updates straight to your inbox.

Or buy the EAP if you're already convinced!
