This is an experimental course, which will develop as we go. We shall go through Henri Jubin's book, Java Beans by Example. Ultimately, we shall develop a complete enterprise Java database system, where we shall connect via Java with a network database running on one of the CS Department's servers.
We shall stress object oriented design methodology, together with the design and use of reusable software components. We shall stress Java Beans because a Java Bean is a reusable software component intended for use in a visual development environment. We shall also stress JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) and JSQL (Java SQL) because this course is, after all, about Java Database Connectivity.
