How do I update records in the database using JdbcTemplate?

The example demonstrated below will show you how to use the JdbcTemplate.update() method for updating records in database. This method returns an integer value indicating number of records updated in the database when the query is executed.

package org.kodejava.example.spring.jdbc;

import org.springframework.jdbc.core.JdbcTemplate;
import org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DriverManagerDataSource;

import javax.sql.DataSource;
import java.sql.Types;
import java.util.Date;

public class UpdateDemo {
    public static final String DRIVER = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
    public static final String URL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/mediadb";
    public static final String USERNAME = "root";
    public static final String PASSWORD = "";

    public static final String QUERY =
            "UPDATE records SET title = ?, release_date = ? WHERE id = ?";

    private DataSource dataSource;

    public UpdateDemo(DataSource dataSource) {
        this.dataSource = dataSource;
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        DataSource ds = getDataSource();
        UpdateDemo demo = new UpdateDemo(ds);

        Long id = 2L;
        String title = "The Beatles 1967 - 1970";
        Date releaseDate = new Date();
        demo.updateRecord(id, title, releaseDate);
    }

    public void updateRecord(Long id, String title, Date releaseDate) {
        // Creates an instance of JdbcTemplate and set the DataSource.
        // We can use the template update() method to update records
        // in the database. Below we use an update() method that accepts
        // three parameters: the sql query, the parameter values and
        // the parameter data types.
        JdbcTemplate template = new JdbcTemplate(this.dataSource);

        Object[] params = {title, releaseDate, id};
        int[] types = {Types.VARCHAR, Types.DATE, Types.BIGINT};

        int rows = template.update(UpdateDemo.QUERY, params, types);
        System.out.println(rows + " row(s) updated.");
    }

    /**
     * Returns a data source object.
     *
     * @return a DataSource.
     */
    public static DataSource getDataSource() {
        DriverManagerDataSource ds = new DriverManagerDataSource();
        ds.setDriverClassName(UpdateDemo.DRIVER);
        ds.setUrl(UpdateDemo.URL);
        ds.setUsername(UpdateDemo.USERNAME);
        ds.setPassword(UpdateDemo.PASSWORD);
        return ds;
    }
}

How do I create a Data Source object for JdbcTemplate?

In this example you will learn how to create and configure a DriverManagerDataSource object that will be used by the JdbcTemplate object. There are some information required when creating a DataSource including the JDBC driver class, the JDBC Url of the target database, the username and password for connecting to database server.

package org.kodejava.example.spring.jdbc;

import org.springframework.jdbc.core.JdbcTemplate;
import org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DriverManagerDataSource;

import javax.sql.DataSource;
import java.util.List;

public class DataSourceDemo {
    public static final String DRIVER = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
    public static final String JDBC_URL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/mediadb";
    public static final String USERNAME = "root";
    public static final String PASSWORD = "";

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Creates an instance of DriverManagerDataSource and pass
        // it to the JdbcTemplate.
        DataSource source = getDataSource();
        JdbcTemplate template = new JdbcTemplate(source);

        // After creating a template with a data source inject we
        // can do a database manipulation such as the CRUD operation.
        System.out.println("DataSource = " + template.getDataSource());
        List records = template.queryForList("SELECT * FROM records");
        for (int i = 0; i < records.size(); i++) {
            System.out.println("Records = " + records.get(i));
        }
    }

    /**
     * Returns a DataSource object for connection to the database.
     *
     * @return a DataSource.
     */
    private static DataSource getDataSource() {
        // Creates a new instance of DriverManagerDataSource and sets
        // the required parameters such as the Jdbc Driver class,
        // Jdbc URL, database user name and password.
        DriverManagerDataSource dataSource = new DriverManagerDataSource();
        dataSource.setDriverClassName(DataSourceDemo.DRIVER);
        dataSource.setUrl(DataSourceDemo.JDBC_URL);
        dataSource.setUsername(DataSourceDemo.USERNAME);
        dataSource.setPassword(DataSourceDemo.PASSWORD);
        return dataSource;
    }
}
