Format: Paperback
This book has devoted two-third of the coverage to explain what is a database, types, conditional operator and so on. Readers would be benefit if they are not familiar with writing or understanding basic SQL statements. For those readers who are from SQL programming background, this book offers very little insight knowledge of how the java interact with the database such as passing binding variables. Most regretably, the majority of examples that author tries to demonstrate how the java interact with the database are unrealistic such as creating, dropping table using static SQL statment wrapped in java code.

Format: Paperback
This is a pretty good book on Java programming in a field that has few alternatives. I first bought the book Java Database Programming Bible, but it was over my head.

I'm not a professional programmer---I dabble in Java, and Mr. Keough's book was written at a level that a hobbyist can understand.

Some of the other reviewers knocked the book for having a Microsoft bias---but I own a copy of Access, so it made sense for me to have a book that uses Access as the database, not some open source database.

My only knock against the book is that it does have some typos---thank goodness I read the book in conjunction with taking an online class given by Professor John Smiley---his margin notes and explanations, coupled with the great exercises provided by this book, have made me a Java Database programming wiz.

Book is not close to anything worthwhile paying for. This title should be changed to 'Some stuff about databases'. Has a M$ bias as shown by using access as database. Using jdbc to odbc as connection type with little to no examples. If the whole book was a here is how to use java to connect to and use data from a database he 'Jim Keogh' might have produced something worth the title and price. Mr. Keogh is Chair E-Commerce Track of Columbia University? That is scary. This book should be a no thanks I will pass.

I've been a Java programmer for a few years but only recently needed to interact with a database. Keogh's book taught me all I needed to get started and complete my project. Keogh covers all aspects of Java database programming in a way that makes it fun to learn. I highly recommend this book to any professional who needs to get a leg up on Java database programming
