JDBC Tutorial - JDBC Update Record

The following code shows how to update a record in database table.

After updating the table, it uses select statement to check the result.


import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.Statement;
/*from   w  w  w. j a  v  a2 s.co m*/
public class Main {
  static final String JDBC_DRIVER = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
  static final String DB_URL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/STUDENTS";

  static final String USER = "username";
  static final String PASS = "password";

  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
    Connection conn = null;
    Statement stmt = null;

    conn = DriverManager.getConnection(DB_URL, USER, PASS);
    System.out.println("Deleting database...");
    stmt = conn.createStatement();

    conn = DriverManager.getConnection(DB_URL, USER, PASS);

    stmt = conn.createStatement();
      String sql = "UPDATE Registration SET age = 30 WHERE id in (1, 2)";
    sql = "SELECT id, first, last, age FROM Person";
    ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(sql);
    while (rs.next()) {
      // Retrieve by column name
      int id = rs.getInt("id");
      int age = rs.getInt("age");
      String first = rs.getString("firstName");
      String last = rs.getString("lastName");

      // Display values
      System.out.print("ID: " + id);
      System.out.print(", Age: " + age);
      System.out.print(", First: " + first);
      System.out.println(", Last: " + last);

Example PreparedStatement

The following code shows how to use PreparedStatement to update database record with Oracle JDBC driver.

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.PreparedStatement;
//from w w  w  .  j  a v a  2 s .  co m
public class Main {
  private static final String DB_DRIVER = "oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver";
  private static final String DB_CONNECTION = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:YourDatabase";
  private static final String DB_USER = "user";
  private static final String DB_PASSWORD = "password";

  public static void main(String[] argv) throws Exception {
    Connection dbConnection = null;
    PreparedStatement preparedStatement = null;
    dbConnection = DriverManager.getConnection(DB_CONNECTION, DB_USER,
    String updateTableSQL = "UPDATE Person SET USERNAME = ? "
        + " WHERE USER_ID = ?";
    preparedStatement = dbConnection.prepareStatement(updateTableSQL);

    preparedStatement.setString(1, "newValue");
    preparedStatement.setInt(2, 1001);
