Hi all ,

Here are my questions :

I like to know when to use Serialization and when should the preference will be given to Database to persist an Object .

To use a database with Java at what level a programmer should be good in Database ?

what are the essential things a good Java programmer needs to know to handle Database efficiently in Java ?

Eventhough it appears some(or all):) of the questions are so abstract if you atleast suggest general guidelines for that it will be very helpful for me.

Thanks in advance

Whether to use serialisation, and whether to use a DB, are not mutually exclusive. There is no reason why you cannot store a serialised object in a DB.

What, exactly, is you want to know? If it is how to se a DB, then consult the JDBC tutorials at Sun first.
