From the official Oracle Press comes a thorough guide to Oracle JDeveloper 3--the complete and integrated Java development and deployment environment. This book explains how to use JDeveloper in combination with an object-oriented approach to database design. In addition to an overview of the tool, the book covers the following JDeveloper components and how these can be successfully integrated into production applications: Applets, Servlets, CORBA, JavaBeans, and Enterprise JavaBeans
JDBC--the Java Database Connectivity specification--is a complex set of application programming interfaces (APIs) that developers need to understand if they want their Java applications to work with databases. JDBC is so complex that even the most experienced developers need to refresh their memories from time to time on specific methods and details. But, practically speaking, who wants to stop and thumb through a weighty tutorial volume each time a question arises?
This book is based on the very latest version of Oracle's fully J2EE-certified Application Server (previously called Oracle9iAS). Oracle Corp. is aggressively attacking this market with a new lost-cost version of the server and a program to move BEA customers onto Oracle free of charge (see http://theregister.co.uk/content/53/30031.html).
Oracle JDeveloper 10g: Empowering J2EE Development offers a look at the Oracle9i tool JDeveloper 9.0.5 (a fully functional, freely downloadable tool), and takes developers through designing a single project from start to finish. It touches on the various aspects of the tool’s environment which begins with the UML design aspects, moves along to the J2EE components including Web Services and deployment, discusses the plug-ins available to use with JDeveloper, and wraps up with troubleshooting tips and a quick reference guide.
JDBC Metadata, MySQL, and Oracle Recipes is the only book that focuses on metadata or annotation-based code recipes for JDBC API for use with Oracle and MySQL. It continues where the author's other book, JDBC Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach, leaves off.
This new edition is also a Java EE 5-compliant book, perfect for lightweight Java database development. And it provides cut-and-paste code templates that can be immediately customized and applied in each developer's application development.
With Oracle in the process of de-supporting SQLJ, JDBC is now really the only recommended means of interfacing between Java and Oracle. Consequently, this book is a must have for any developer building an Oracle Java application.
Many Java developers tend to treat Oracle as a "black box"; as a consequence, developers tend to write incorrect, non-scalable code. If you don't intimately know how Oracle works and expects you to program, you might avoid Oracle extensions to the standard for fear of your code becoming database-dependent.
Application Express, or APEX, is one of the most innovative products to come out of Oracle in years. APEX is an application development framework for developing database-backed applications. It's easy enough to get started in that power users can quit storing data in random spreadsheets and instead centralize their data in the powerful Oracle database, all without developer help. Developers aren't left out, however. Those who choose to can go deep and leverage the full power and flexibility of Oracle's database engine.
