How do I create a table in database?

In this example you can see how to create a table in an Oracle database. We create a table called books with two fields, id and title. We start by registering the Oracle database drive, create a connection to the database a execute the create table statement.

package org.kodejava.example.sql;

import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.sql.Statement;

public class CreateTableExample {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        Connection connection = null;
        try {
            Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver");

            String url = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:xe";
            String username = "kodejava";
            String password = "kodejava123";

            String sql = "CREATE TABLE books (id NUMBER(11), title VARCHAR2(64))";
            connection = DriverManager.getConnection(url, username, password);
            Statement statement = connection.createStatement();
            statement.execute(sql);
        } catch (SQLException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        } finally {
            try {
                if (connection != null && !connection.isClosed()) {
                    connection.close();
                }
            } catch (SQLException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
        }
    }
}
