This Month's Meeting: Java Database Access

At the April 22nd meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group George Watson will give a tour of the Java database access package.

Part of the Java API version 1.1, contains several key abstractions, based on ODBC, which enable the easy access to data from Java applications/applets. This talk will give a brief explanation of the historical basis for JDBC, the JDBC classes, and their application.

George Watson is vice-president and co-founder of The Stoker Group, a team/project oriented consulting firm based in Boulder, Colorado. George has been developing hardware and software for over 18 years. He has been working with object technologies since the late 1980s and has extensive experience in object-oriented analysis and design, molecular modeling, computer-aided dispatch, health care and others. Since mid-1995 he has been working with Java developing database related packages.

Meeting Location

The next meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group will be in room 123 of the CU Academic Computing Center building at Arapahoe and Marine Streets in Boulder. Marine St intersects Arapahoe at 38th St; the Computing Center is on the southwest corner.

FRUUG Library Notes

This month O'Reilly & Associates sent us the new edition of their classic sendmail book, covering sendmail Version 8.8 from Berkeley and the standard versions available on most systems. The second edition includes an expanded tutorial, and new topics including the #error delivery agent, exit values, MIME headers, and how to set up and use the user database, mailertable, and smrsh.

You may check books out using your business card as your library card; you must be on the membership list to check books out. Books are due at the meeting following the one in which they are checked out. If you don't return your library books by the next meeting, you might find yourself on our overdue book list. We count on you returning books on time so that other members may have the chance to use them as well.
