The Basic Steps to Connect Oracle and Java Program Here, I will show you what the steps to ma e a connection between Oracle databas e and your Java program. To do this wor , you need the JDBC (Java DataBase Conne ctivity) driver. The file name of Oracle's JDBC driver is or class es12.jar. By default, Oracle have included this driver at the software installat ion process. Its location is in the ORACLE_HOME\jdbc\lib directory. For example, if our ORACLE_HOME is C:\Oracle\Ora90 then the JDBC driver will be placed in C: \Oracle\Ora90\jdbc\lib directory. Ma e sure to set the Java CLASSPATH correctly. Here is the command line to do it . (Note: Assume the ORACLE_HOME is C:\Oracle\Ora90) set CLASSPATH=.;C:\Oracle\Ora90\jdbc\lib\classes12.jar or set CLASSPATH=.;C:\Oracle\Ora90\jdbc\lib\ In addition, you can also set the CLASSPATH in your autoexec.bat file on your Wi ndows operating system. Now, just follow these steps: STEP 1. Import the java.sql pac age into your program. -----------------------------------------------------import java.sql.*; The syntax above will import all classes in the java.sql pac age. If you want to import a few of them, you can write the syntax li e this import java.sql.Driver; import java.sql.DriverManager; import java.sql.Connection; It only imports the Driver, DriverManager, and Connection class into your Java p rogram. STEP 2. Load the Oracle's JDBC driver. --------------------------------------

There are two ways to load your JDBC driver. The first, use the forName() method of java.lang.Class class. Class.forName("oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver"); And the second way is use the registerDriver() method of DriverManager class. DriverManager.registerDriver(new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver()); STEP 3. Create a Connection object. ----------------------------------To create a Connection object, use the getConnection() method of DriverManager c lass. This method ta es three parameters: URL, username, and password. Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection( "jdbc:oracle:thin:@mylaptop:1521:ORADB", "budiraharjo", // username "SDDNBandung" // password ); STEP 4. Create a Statement object. ---------------------------------The Statement object can be created by call the createStatement() method of Conn ection object that you made before. So, you can write the following code Statement mystat = conn.createStatement(); STEP 5. Execute your SQL statement. ----------------------------------After you create a Statement object successfully, you can execute a query (SELEC T statement) from your Java program using the executeQuery() method of Statement class. The result of execution process will be stored in ResultSet object, so y ou need to declare an object of ResultSet first. Here is the code. ResultSet rs = mystat.executeQuery("select custno, custname from customer"); STEP 6. Display your data. -------------------------The next step is display your data using the looping control. while ( { System.out.println( rs.getInt(1) + // first column "\t" + // the horizontal tab rs.getString(2) // second column ); } STEP 7. Close your statement and connection. -------------------------------------------mystat.close(); conn.close();
