Create cross-platform database-driven applications with JDBC
The Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API offers a unified interface to different databases, providing a series of generic functions that are internally translated into native function calls. This makes it extremely easy to create database-driven applications that work across different RDBMS types and to switch from one database architecture to another without significantly affecting your application code. In this tutorial, you will get an introduction to JDBC showing you how to use JDBC methods to perform basic database operations:
- Retrieve and process resultsets
- Inser new records and modify existing ones, and
- Obtain metadata about installed databases and tables
