Archived: JDK 1.6 Documentation Installation

This section describes how to install JDK Documentation on your own machine.

To learn JDBC more effectively, you definitely need to have a copy of the JDK Documentation installed on your own machine. JDK Documentation provides you detailed information of all classes and methods used in JDBC. Here is what I did to download and install JDK 6 Documentation on my local machine.

To verify the installation, I opened the C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_02\docs\index.html with IE (Internet Explorer). You should see the JDK 5 Documentation starting page as shown in this picture:

Click the JDBC link on the JDK 6 Documentation page to see what documentations are available for JDBC.
