JDBC is built for the purpose of communication with relational databases with the help of Java Program.
The Jdbc Driver is component that comes like mediator that takes to and fro data from java to database and vice versa.
Today We are going to perform save ,delete, display operations on H2 database from java program.
Before we kick start our implementation I wish to introduce you with some core classes we will use throughout the tutorial.
  • Class.forName(driverClass)
  • DriverManager
  • Connection
  • PrepareStament
  • ResultSet
  • Class.forName(driverClass):It is used for loading the database specific drivers. This driver gives the power to communicate with database from java program.
  • DriverManager:This class mainly is loaded when you load driver using Class.forName.DriverManager helps you find and load suitable jdbc driver using classloader.
              Once Drivermanager loaded you can use static method                     DriverManager.getConnection(url,username,password) to get Connection.
              DriverManager attempts to establish the connection with database using the getConnection() once it establishes connection it gives you Connection instance in return.
  • Connection: Connection class is responsible for giving the database related information. It also gives Statement object.
  • PrepareStatement: Used for performing the insert/update/delete operations on the database.

  • Statement: Statement is used mainly for getting list of records from table.

Steps For Implementation
  • Step1:Get H2 database jar from H2 Database Jar.
  • Step2:File->Create Project->Java->give some name to project.
  • Place this H2 jar in classpath.Right click project ->Conigure build path->Add external jar->select jar->click Ok
  • Step3:Create H2Sample.java in src folder of your project.
  • Step4:Add the below code in your H2Sample.java file.
See complete example.
