Java SE JDBC with Prepared Statement Parameterized Select Example

Post Banner

In this Tutorial, we will take a look at how to write in Simple Java SE JDBC a prepared Select Parameterized Select,

CREATE TABLE `students` (
  `student_id` int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `student_name` varchar(45) NOT NULL,
  `student_dob` datetime NOT NULL,
  `student_address` varchar(45) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`student_id`,`student_dob`);
Data in the table:
select * from students;
| student_id | student_name | student_dob         | student_address |
|          1 | Mike         | 2001-07-22 00:00:00 | New York City   |
|          2 | Alex         | 2002-08-13 00:00:00 | Chicago         |
|          3 | Sam          | 2022-01-25 00:00:00 | Ohio            |
Java Example:
import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.PreparedStatement;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;
