How do I call a stored procedure that return a result set?

This example show you how to call a stored procedure that return a result set of the query execution result.

package org.kodejava.example.jdbc;

import java.sql.CallableStatement;
import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;

public class CallableStatementExample {
    private static final String URL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/kodejava";
    private static final String USERNAME = "root";
    private static final String PASSWORD = "";

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try (Connection connection =
                 DriverManager.getConnection(URL, USERNAME, PASSWORD)) {

            // Prepares a call to the sored procedure. This SP takes
            // one IN parameter
            String query = "call GetProductByPrice(?)";
            CallableStatement cb = connection.prepareCall(query);

            // Sets the input parameter
            cb.setDouble(1, 40d);

            // Execute the query
            ResultSet rs = cb.executeQuery();

            while (rs.next()) {
                System.out.println("Product: " + rs.getString(1));
            }
        } catch (SQLException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}

Here is the stored procedure script we use in the example above.

DELIMITER ;;
DROP PROCEDURE IF EXISTS GetProductByPrice;;
CREATE PROCEDURE GetProductByPrice(IN product_price DECIMAL)
  BEGIN
    SELECT name FROM products WHERE price = product_price;
  END;;
DELIMITER ;

How do I execute stored procedure?

Stored procedure are user-generated functions or procedures that, once created in the database, can be called by the client applications, such as Java application. In this example we’ll demonstrate how to use the JDBC java.sql.CallableStatement to call a stored procedure. The store procedure in this example is just for selecting records from the products table.

package org.kodejava.example.jdbc;

import java.sql.*;

public class CallableStatementDemo {
    private static final String URL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/kodejava";
    private static final String USERNAME = "root";
    private static final String PASSWORD = "";

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        try (Connection connection =
                 DriverManager.getConnection(URL, USERNAME, PASSWORD)) {

            // Create a CallableStatement to execute the GetAllProducts() 
            // procedure.
            CallableStatement stmt = 
                connection.prepareCall("{CALL GetAllProducts()}");

            ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery();
            while (rs.next()) {
                System.out.println(rs.getLong("id") + "\t"
                    + rs.getString("code") + "\t"
                    + rs.getString("name") + "\t"
                    + rs.getDouble("price"));
            }
        } catch (SQLException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}

Below is the stored procedure definition that was executed in the code above.

DELIMITER ;;
CREATE PROCEDURE `GetAllProducts`()
BEGIN 
    SELECT * FROM products;
END;;
DELIMITER ;
