How do I select records from database using JdbcTemplate?

In this example you will learn how to select records from the database using JdbcTemplate.queryForList() method. This method returns a List object which stores information selected from the table in a HashMap object. The key of the map is the table’s field names while the value of the map contains the corresponding table’s field value.

package org.kodejava.spring.jdbc;

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

import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

public class SelectDemo {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Creates a DataSource object.
        DriverManagerDataSource ds = new DriverManagerDataSource();

        // Creates an instance of JdbcTemplate.
        JdbcTemplate template = new JdbcTemplate(ds);

        // Executes a select query using queryForList() method. This
        // method returns a List containing HashMap object. The key
        // of the map is the table's field name and the value is
        // the table's field value.
        String query = "SELECT * FROM record";
        List<Map<String, Object>> results = template.queryForList(query);
        for (Map<String, Object> result : results) {
            for (String key : result.keySet()) {
                System.out.print(key + " = " + result.get(key) + "; ");
