Course Outline

This covers the fundamentals of database programming in Java using JDBC (Java Database connectivity) in an incremental fashion, to get the programmer up to speed quickly and then to layer a deeper understanding of JDBC upon that foundation. This course has been designed to work with any of these relational database management systems:
  • Apache Derby, version 10.1
  • MySQL, version 4.1
  • PostgreSQL 8.0
  • Oracle, version 9i or 10g

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
  • Briefly review relational database fundamentals with an awareness of the differences between SQL99 and SQL implementations by database vendors.
  • Connect to a database using JDBC and perform a simple query.
  • Update relational data using JDBC to execute updates, inserts and deletes.
  • Use prepared statements to produce reusable database queries and optimize execution time.
  • Use callable statements to access database procedures.
  • Use scrollable and updatable results sets for more robust solutions.
  • Use commit, rollback, and savepoint to build transactional systems.
  • Use batch processing for efficient handling of large datasets.
  • Understand the use of RowSets and the improved techniques and portability that they bring to JDBC.
  • Database and SQL Fundamentals
  • JDBC Fundamentals
  • Advanced JDBC
  • Introduction to Row Sets

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
I took the training remotely so I cannot comment on some of the questions. I think that this seminar has too much content to squeeze it into one week.... might be better as a two week course?

found the material very helpful - although there was a lot of material covered - the pace was well set. Would definitely recommend people to have explored Microsoft Access beforehand to be familiarized with the program before taking the course. I would imagine someone without any exposure would find it confusing. Environment really good - people very, very nice and helpful. Would definitely take the next level of access with the same training facility.

I was not in the physical classroom. Feedback centered around online training would be good because now I have to rate items that I was not present for. Those items are getting half a star because I was not there to rate them. The course material must go through an editing process. There are a lot of grammar mistakes, but also a lot of actual procedure/activity mistakes.
