Spring JDBC Hello World Example, Create Table In Database

Spring » on Feb 11, 2012 { 21 Comments } By Sivateja

Let us see how to create a table in database using spring JDBC.

Files Required

  • spconfig.xml

Directory Structure

package java4s;

import org.springframework.jdbc.core.JdbcTemplate;

public class SpringJdbcCreateTable
	JdbcTemplate jt;

	public void setJt(JdbcTemplate jt)
		this.jt = jt;

	public void createTable()
		jt.execute("create table sptest(sno number(3), sname varchar(10))");
		// execute() returns void
		System.out.println("table created");

package java4s;

import org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.xml.XmlBeanFactory;

public class OurLogic
	public static void main(String args[])
		Resource res = new ClassPathResource("spconfig.xml");
		BeanFactory factory = new XmlBeanFactory(res);
		SpringJdbcCreateTable st =(SpringJdbcCreateTable)factory.getBean("id3");




<bean id="id1" class="org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DriverManagerDataSource">
  <property name="driverClassName" value="oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver"/>
  <property name="url" value="jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:XE"/>
  <property name="username" value="system"/>
  <property name="password" value="admin"/>

<bean id="id2" class="org.springframework.jdbc.core.JdbcTemplate">
      <ref bean="id1"/>

<bean id="id3" class="java4s.SpringJdbcCreateTable">
  <property name="jt">
     <ref bean="id2"/>



table created

Note:  See in  i have used execute() method which will returns void, in fact we can use update() too but this will returns some int value.  So better execute() for creating these type of jobs.

    Great tutorial.I appreciate your work.While implementing,I have come across a mistake in your code
    jt.execute(“create table sptest(sno number(3), sname varchar(10))”);
    I modified this by
    jt.execute(“create table sptest(sno int(3), sname varchar(10))”);
    and it works fine.

    Good luck
