JDBC (Java DB Connectivity) is a Java Standard API for connecting a Java application to an RDBMS. Although you may not need to use JDBC directly in any application today, it is important to understand how it works. Any modern frameworks like Hibernate or JPA which are ORM (Object-Relation-Mapper) or Mybatis which is an SQL mapper, behind the scene use JDBC.
In this class, we will be looking into the architecture of a JDBC application, connecting to a DB, executing SQL statements, and handling the results of SQL SELECT statements. We will also be learning how to setup a light weight DB called H2, with out having to install anything on our computer.
The class is completely hands-on based, so get ready to code a lot.
