    Default mysql and java


    My mysql table ''Compagnie'' contains a company list. Each company is define this way: name, field, size, latitude, longitude, distance . I wants to be able to input my current location so java would classify the companies by the nearest.

    **The value "Distance" is not define. It will change depending of the current location.**

    Not looking for the code...I have been able to query, delete, select and update information from/to mysql through Wamp server(myphpadmin). Just need a clue.

    This is where I get stuck.

    -Input my current location
    -Query the latitude and longitude of each company.
    -Calculate the distance between my location and the companies location
    -Update the "distance" value for each company in mysql.

    It does calculate the distance but applies the result of the last company on the table to all the when I come back to mysql, each company seems to be located at the same distance from my current location. Need some advices.

    Here is the code:

    import java.sql.*;
    import java.lang.Math;

    public class update2 {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    System.out.println("Updates Records Example through Prepared Statement!");
    Connection con = null;
    Statement stmt = null;

    con = DriverManager.getConnection(


    stmt = con.createStatement();

    String sql1 = "SELECT Longitude, Latitude FROM companyinfo" ;
    ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(sql1);


    String sql = "UPDATE companyinfo SET Distance = (?) ";
    PreparedStatement prest = con.prepareStatement(sql);

    float currentlatitude= 50;
    float currentlongitude= 100;

    float Latitude = rs.getFloat("Latitude");
    float Longitude = rs.getFloat("Longitude");

    float currentdistance = (float) Math.sqrt(((currentlatitude-Latitude)*(currentlatitude-Latitude))+((currentlongitude-Longitude)*(currentlongitude-Longitude)));
    prest.setFloat(1, currentdistance);



    System.out.println(" Updating Successfully!");
    catch (SQLException s){
    System.out.println("SQL statement is not executed!");
    catch (Exception e){


    Thank you. Merci vous.

    Default Re: mysql and java

    What does your code look like?
    Specifically how you do the update and how that update code is called.
    Sounds (and this is a guess) like you're simply updating the entire table each time, rather than specific rows.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
