Display all tables inside a MySQL database using Java?

MySQLMySQLi DatabaseJava 8Programming

We will see here how to display all tables inside a MySQL database using Java. You can use show command from MySQL to get all tables inside a MySQL database.

Let’s say our database is ‘test’. The Java code is as follows to show all table names inside a database ‘test’.

The Java code is as follows. Here, connection is established between MySQL and Java −

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

import com.mysql.jdbc.Connection;
import com.mysql.jdbc.DatabaseMetaData;

public class GetAllTables {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException {
      Connection conn = null;
      try {
         try {
            Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");
         } catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e);
         }
         conn = (Connection) DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/test", "Manish", "123456");
         System.out.println("Connection is created succcessfully:");
      } catch (Exception e) {
         System.out.println(e);
      }
      ResultSet rs = null;
      DatabaseMetaData meta = (DatabaseMetaData) conn.getMetaData();
      rs = meta.getTables(null, null, null, new String[] {
         "TABLE"
      });
      int count = 0;
      System.out.println("All table names are in test database:");
      while (rs.next()) {
         String tblName = rs.getString("TABLE_NAME");
         System.out.println(tblName);
         count++;
      }
      System.out.println(count + " Rows in set ");
   }
}

The following is the output displaying all the table from the database test −

Wed Dec 12 14:55:28 IST 2018 WARN: Establishing SSL connection without server's identity verification is not recommended. According to MySQL 5.5.45+, 5.6.26+ and 5.7.6+ requirements SSL connection must be established by default if explicit option isn't set. For compliance with existing applications not using SSL the verifyServerCertificate property is set to 'false'. You need either to explicitly disable SSL by setting useSSL = false, or set useSSL = true and provide truststore for server certificate verification.
Connection is created succcessfully:

To cross check, use the MySQL show command to display all tables inside the database “test”. The query is as follows −

mysql> use test;
Database changed
mysql> show tables;

The following is the output −

103 rows in set (0.01 sec)

As you can see above, both of them gives the same result.
