Let us create a database table Student in our database TEST. I assume you are working with MySQL database, if you work with any other database then you can change your DDL and SQL queries accordingly.
CREATE TABLE Student( ID INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, NAME VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL, AGE INT NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (ID) );
Now we need to supply a DataSource to the JDBC Template so it can configure itself to get database access. You can configure the DataSource in the XML file with a piece of code shown as follows −
<bean id = "dataSource" class = "org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DriverManagerDataSource"> <property name = "driverClassName" value = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"/> <property name = "url" value = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/TEST"/> <property name = "username" value = "root"/> <property name = "password" value = "admin"/> </bean>
In the next chapter, we'll write the first application using the database configured.
