PreparedStatement with Parameters

This section describes how to create PreparedStatement objects with Parameters.

To make a PreparedStatement object more flexible, you can add parameters to the embedded SQL statement with question marks (?). Real values should be added before executing the PreparedStatement object.

Adding values to PreparedStatement parameters should be done by calling setXXX() methods in this format:

ps.setXXX(1, value);
ps.setXXX(2, value);
ps.setXXX(n, value);
  // Sets value to the n-th parameter.

JDBC supports many setXXX() methods, one for each Java data type, so that you can set parameter values directly with the desired Java data types without any conversion. Here is a list of setXXX() methods:

Here is a sample program that created a PreparedStatement object with one parameter:

import java.util.*;
import java.sql.*;
import javax.sql.*;
import javax.naming.*;
public class MySqlPreparedStatementParameter {
  public static void main(String [] args) {
    Connection con = null;
    try {
      com.mysql.cj.jdbc.MysqlDataSource ds
        = new com.mysql.cj.jdbc.MysqlDataSource();
      // com.mysql.jdbc.jdbc2.optional.MysqlDataSource ds
      //   = new com.mysql.jdbc.jdbc2.optional.MysqlDataSource();
      con = ds.getConnection();

// PreparedStatement for SELECT statement with one parameter
      PreparedStatement sta = con.prepareStatement(
  "SELECT * FROM Profile WHERE ID = ?");

// Provide a value to the parameter
      int id = 9;

// Execute the PreparedStatement as a query
      ResultSet res = sta.executeQuery();

// Get values out of the ResultSet;
      String firstName = res.getString("FirstName");
      String lastName = res.getString("LastName");
      System.out.println("User ID "+id+": "+firstName+' '+lastName);

// Close ResultSet and PreparedStatement

    } catch (Exception e) {
      System.err.println("Exception: "+e.getMessage());

Output of the program confirms that the PreparedStatement object worked correctly:

User ID 9: 16a8 dabd2
