From the Back Cover

The first comprehensive guide to MySQL for Java developers

With more than three million users, MySQL is the most popular open source database server in the world. It is the most popular database server for Linux and also runs on Windows, Macintosh, FreeBSD, and many flavors of UNIX. Most developers have built MySQL applications using programming languages like C, PHP, and Perl, but three years ago the author of this book, Mark Matthews, created MM.MySQL, the Java driver for MySQL. Since then, MySQL AB has shown their support for Java developers by hiring Mark, adopting his driver, and re-releasing it as Connector/J. Now, Mark Matthews and team explain everything you need to build database applications with MySQL and Java.

This book is a complete and authoritative tutorial and reference on MySQL for Java and takes a hands-on, code-intensive approach so you can learn how to build sophisticated Web database applications. Matthews begins by reviewing the fundamentals of MySQL 3.x and 4.x, followed by:

  • Details of how to use JDBC with MySQL for Java application, servlet, JSP, and EJB development
  • Several sample database applications, including an Address and Fingerprint Management system that uses servlets, and an Advanced Account Management system that uses EJBs
  • MySQL and JDBC tuning techniques
  • MySQL administration advice
  • JDBC API reference specific to MySQL and Connector/J

About the Author

I haven't found the errors that other reviewers have mentioned (that's not to say they're not there, but they weren't an issue to me). However, I have found this to be one of the most useful technical books I have ever used. I knew nothing about mySQL configuration and a passing bit of experience with JDBC and this book helped me setup an enterprise-used database that is very well designed and works like a charm. I have a TomCat servlet server running and used this developer's guide religiously. It is actually interesting to read, not only as a reference. Of course, I'm interested in this topic, so I'm a little biased, but I really recommend this book to anyone who wants to use this EXCELLENT, free DBMS and write powerful apps using Java.

I have not come across the errors in this book that some other reviewers have talked about and the code I wrote using info from this book works. My only bad words about this book are that the sections were not really ordered in with any logic, and were not very long. This was Ok though because they give enough information and coresponding well explained code examples to get the job done. I thought I was in trouble because the first half of the book didnt talk about using java and mysql on a web page but half way through they talked about servlets. With this book you can code a three tier web application that runs a store driven from your mySQL DB or you can write stand alone apps with mySQL functionality. In short this book is effective where it counts.

I'm currently enrolled in an Undergraduate Course in Relational Database Systems. I was getting tired of reading incomplete tutorials around the internet on how to use JDBC and MySQL effectively so I bought this book bought last week on Amazon Marketplace. It was ridiculously cheap (About $3), but after seeing how useful it is, I definitely would've paid the regular price. One of the authors, Mark Matthews, actually wrote the Connector/J driver for MySql!

-This book is a tutorial, NOT a reference.
-All of the code and examples used in the book are available online so you don't need to waste hours retyping code to get the feel of it.
-The book assumes you are somewhat competent in Java and goes into applets, beans, and EJBs, but I think someone who knows C++ and really understands OOP will be able to manage alright.

Good luck!

I got this books few days back and started with a chapter and could not resist to read most of it. This books gave me answers to all my questions. This is a very detailed book. I did not look at it as SQL or Database book. It explains (VERY CLEARLY) what the title is about.
The authors thought about all the issues (setting up, connecting, writing Java code) and explained them very nicely. I wish all the books are written with this kind of calrity! Sure we can get most of this material on WWW, but searching for the information is painful. This book saved me lots of time.
Great job authors.

Format: Paperback
This book provided a decent walthrough of MySQL and its JDBC driver, however it made some shocking conceptual mistakes. For instance, the "Consistency" principle in ACID transactions has nothing to do with referential integrity, but dirty uncommitted reads. A type 2 and NOT 4 JDBC driver is frequently the best performing type (Oracle's OCI outperforms its Thin and DB2's App seriously outperforms its Net driver). Furthermore, it had one of the most shocking mistakes I've ever seen in a technical book: The "JavaScript" example provided is really just scriptlets inside a JSP -- To me, not even understanding what JavaScript is seriously undermined the credibility of this book.

Format: Paperback
I have bought this book because I had expected to find there some more advanced hints and tricks, especially about performance tuning and bottlenecks of Java and MySQL applications. Unfortunatelly, this book only covers the very basic problematics. It is a good kickstart for beginners, but only for them. Experienced developers should pick a general J2EE book instead.

Mark Matthews has done a great job with this book. His MM.MySQL has always been the best driver available, and now he has the best book. This thing covers a wide range of topics needed to develop MySQL applications with Java. It covers all the basics of course, but has a ton of high end info too including 10 solid pages on advanced connection pool management, excellent performance and tuning advice, EJB examples, and great info for working with BLOBs and CLOGs.
I'm just moving up to Connector/J 3.0.x, so I appreciate that this book covers it and the older 2.0.14. Definitely makes the transition smoother.
Another great benefit...the code actually works as described, is useful, realistic, and available on the book's website. Great stuff!
