Question:how to iBATIS - Update Operation?


We have following EMPLOYEE table in MySQL:
   id INT NOT NULL auto_increment,
   first_name VARCHAR(20) default NULL,
   last_name  VARCHAR(20) default NULL,
   salary     INT  default NULL,
This table is having only one record as follows:
mysql> select * from EMPLOYEE;
| id | first_name | last_name | salary |
|  1 | Zara       | Ali       |   5000 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)
Employee POJO Class:
To perform udpate operation you would need to modify file as follows:
public class Employee {
  private int id;
  private String first_name; 
  private String last_name;   
  private int salary;  
  /* Define constructors for the Employee class. */
  public Employee() {}
  public Employee(String fname, String lname, int salary) {
    this.first_name = fname;
    this.last_name = lname;
    this.salary = salary;
 /* Here are the required method definitions */
  public int getId() {
    return id;
  public void setId(int id) { = id;
  public String getFirstName() {
    return first_name;
  public void setFirstName(String fname) {
    this.first_name = fname;
  public String getLastName() {
    return last_name;
  public void setlastName(String lname) {
    this.last_name = lname;
  public int getSalary() {
    return salary;
  public void setSalary(int salary) {
    this.salary = salary;
 } /* End of Employee */
Employee.xml File:
To define SQL mapping statement using iBATIS, we would add tag in Employee.xml file and inside this tag definition we would define an "id" which will be used in file for executing SQL UPDATE query on database.
PUBLIC "-// SQL Map 2.0//EN"
   INSERT INTO EMPLOYEE(first_name, last_name, salary)
   values (#first_name#, #last_name#, #salary#)
      select last_insert_id() as id
   SET    first_name = #first_name#
   WHERE  id = #id# File:
This file would have application level logic to update records into the Employee table:
import com.ibatis.common.resources.Resources;
import com.ibatis.sqlmap.client.SqlMapClient;
import com.ibatis.sqlmap.client.SqlMapClientBuilder;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.util.*;
public class IbatisUpdate{
  public static void main(String[] args)
   throws IOException,SQLException{
   Reader rd = Resources.getResourceAsReader("SqlMapConfig.xml");
   SqlMapClient smc = SqlMapClientBuilder.buildSqlMapClient(rd);
   /* This would update one record in Employee table. */
   System.out.println("Going to update record.....");
   Employee rec = new Employee();
   rec.setFirstName( "Roma");
   smc.update("Employee.update", rec );
   System.out.println("Record updated Successfully ");
   System.out.println("Going to read records.....");
   List ems = (List)
                  smc.queryForList("Employee.getAll", null);
   Employee em = null;
   for (Employee e : ems) {
      System.out.print("  " + e.getId());
      System.out.print("  " + e.getFirstName());
      System.out.print("  " + e.getLastName());
      System.out.print("  " + e.getSalary());
      em = e; 
   System.out.println("Records Read Successfully ");
Compilation and Run:
Here are the steps to compile and run the above mentioned software. Make sure you have set PATH and CLASSPATH appropriately before proceeding for the compilation and execution.
Create Employee.xml as shown above.
Create as shown above and compile it.
Create as shown above and compile it.
Execute IbatisUpdate binary to run the program.
You would get following result, and a record would be updated in EMPLOYEE table and later same record would be read from the EMPLOYEE table.
Going to update record.....
Record updated Successfully
Going to read records.....
  1  Roma  Ali  5000
Records Read Successfully
