JDBC stands for Java Database Connectivity. In this course, Database Applications with JDBC in Java SE Applications (Java SE 11 Developer Certification 1Z0-819), you’ll learn to access databases using JDBC. First, you’ll explore creating a connection to a database using the DriverManager. Next, you’ll discover How to query and update databases with PreparedStatements Finally, you’ll learn how to execute stored procedures using CallableStatements. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of JDBC needed to be able to connect to a database and perform queries and updates against that database.
Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Kevin Jones, and welcome to my course Database Applications with JDBC in Java SE applications. This course is part of the Java 11 Developer Certification series of courses here, on Pluralsight. I am a developer and owner at Rock Solid Knowledge, a software development company based in the United Kingdom. JDBC allows us a way to access databases from Java code. It is the basis of other underlying Java technologies such as Hibernate, for example. If you want to understand the foundations of database access in Java, then this is the course for you. During this course, we'll understand the structure of a JDBC URL, learn how to connect to a database, create and use a PreparedStatement to read and update data in a database, use CallableStatements to execute stored procedures, and understand how to iterate over result sets to retrieve the data from a database query. By the end of this course, you'll know how to use JDBC to read data from a database and update data within a database both using SQL statements and SQL stored procedures. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Java syntax and also with IntelliJ Idea. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn JDBC with the Database Applications with JDBC in Java SE Applications course from Pluralsight.
