How do I use @Select annotation in MyBatis?

In the previous example How do I create MyBatis mapper? you’ve seen how to use a mapper to get a record from the database. In that example the select query is defined in the mapper xml file. For the same functionality MyBatis also offer a solution to use an annotation for the select query.

In this example we will use the @Select annotation to define the query. To map the query result we can use the @ResultMap annotation where the value passed to this annotation is the result map id that we’ve defined in the mapper xml file.

Let see an example of a mapper interface definition that use an annotation to get a record from database:

package org.kodejava.example.mybatis.annotation;

import org.apache.ibatis.annotations.ResultMap;
import org.apache.ibatis.annotations.Select;
import org.kodejava.example.mybatis.domain.Record;

public interface RecordMapper {
     * Get a single Record from the database based on the record
     * identified.
     * @param id record identifier.
     * @return a record object.
    @Select("SELECT * FROM records WHERE id = #{id}")
    Record getRecord(int id);
