Here’s an example to show you how to insert a record into table via JDBC PreparedStatement. To issue an insert statement, calls the PreparedStatement.executeUpdate() method like this :


String insertTableSQL = "INSERT INTO DBUSER"
		+ "(USER_ID, USERNAME, CREATED_BY, CREATED_DATE) VALUES"
		+ "(?,?,?,?)";
PreparedStatement preparedStatement = dbConnection.prepareStatement(insertTableSQL);
preparedStatement.setInt(1, 11);
preparedStatement.setString(2, "mkyong");
preparedStatement.setString(3, "system");
preparedStatement.setTimestamp(4, getCurrentTimeStamp());
// execute insert SQL stetement
preparedStatement .executeUpdate();

Full example…


package com.mkyong.jdbc;

import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.PreparedStatement;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;

public class JDBCPreparedStatementInsertExample {

	private static final String DB_DRIVER = "oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver";
	private static final String DB_CONNECTION = "jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1521:MKYONG";
	private static final String DB_USER = "user";
	private static final String DB_PASSWORD = "password";

	public static void main(String[] argv) {

		try {

			insertRecordIntoTable();

		} catch (SQLException e) {

			System.out.println(e.getMessage());

		}

	}

	private static void insertRecordIntoTable() throws SQLException {

		Connection dbConnection = null;
		PreparedStatement preparedStatement = null;

		String insertTableSQL = "INSERT INTO DBUSER"
				+ "(USER_ID, USERNAME, CREATED_BY, CREATED_DATE) VALUES"
				+ "(?,?,?,?)";

		try {
			dbConnection = getDBConnection();
			preparedStatement = dbConnection.prepareStatement(insertTableSQL);

			preparedStatement.setInt(1, 11);
			preparedStatement.setString(2, "mkyong");
			preparedStatement.setString(3, "system");
			preparedStatement.setTimestamp(4, getCurrentTimeStamp());

			// execute insert SQL stetement
			preparedStatement.executeUpdate();

			System.out.println("Record is inserted into DBUSER table!");

		} catch (SQLException e) {

			System.out.println(e.getMessage());

		} finally {

			if (preparedStatement != null) {
				preparedStatement.close();
			}

			if (dbConnection != null) {
				dbConnection.close();
			}

		}

	}

	private static Connection getDBConnection() {

		Connection dbConnection = null;

		try {

			Class.forName(DB_DRIVER);

		} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {

			System.out.println(e.getMessage());

		}

		try {

			dbConnection = DriverManager.getConnection(
                            DB_CONNECTION, DB_USER,DB_PASSWORD);
			return dbConnection;

		} catch (SQLException e) {

			System.out.println(e.getMessage());

		}

		return dbConnection;

	}

	private static java.sql.Timestamp getCurrentTimeStamp() {

		java.util.Date today = new java.util.Date();
		return new java.sql.Timestamp(today.getTime());

	}

}

Result

A record is inserted into a table named “DBUSER”.
