The JDBC API is a Java API that can access any kind of tabular data, especially data stored in a Relational Database.
JDBC helps you to write Java applications that manage these three programming activities:
1. Connect to a data source, like a database
2. Send queries and update statements to the database
3. Retrieve and process the results received from the database in answer to your query
The following simple code fragment gives a simple example of these three steps:
Java Code:
public void connectToAndQueryDatabase(String username, String password) {

    Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(

    Statement stmt = con.createStatement();
    ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT a, b, c FROM Table1");

    while ( {
        int x = rs.getInt("a");
        String s = rs.getString("b");
        float f = rs.getFloat("c");
