Java JDBC Best practices
JDBC Best Practices are some coding practices which Java programmer should follow while writing JDBC code. As discussed in how to connect to Oracle database from Java, JDBC API is used to connect and interact with a Database management System. We have touched some of the JDBC best practices in our last article 4 JDBC Performance tips, On which we have discussed simple tips to improve performance of Java application with database. By using JDBC you can execute DDL, DML and Stored Procedures. JDBC Best practices is probably most significant set of coding practices in Java because it significantly affect performance of Java application. I have seen substantial performance gain by simply following common JDBC best practices like running queries with auto commit mode disable. One of the query which we used in our example of JDBC Batch update was taking almost 30 second to finish with auto commit mode enabled but it just took under one second with auto commit mode disable and using explicit commit. This JDBC tutorial is collection of such practices which help you to write better JDBC code and in most cases result in improved performance.
