Properties and look at the examples there. As you’ve worked with the Apache Derby database, either by following along with the previous articles in this series or on your own, you’ve undoubtedly experienced both database warnings and database errors. The rest of the code is contained in the main method; it uses the default class loader in the JVM to find and instantiate the driver class previously defined, which is done by using the Class. To access the appropriate metadata, you first create a new DatabaseMetaData object from the current JDBC Connection , as shown in the previous example. In particular that line of Java code where you tried to declare the jdbc.

Consider Paul’s rocket mass heater. Today most drivers, including those you use to connect to a Derby database, are Type 4 drivers, which means they’re written entirely in the Java language and directly translate the JDBC API into the vendor-specific database protocol. This may seem odd in a normal error-handling sense, but when it comes to database programming, expect the unexpected.

The value assigned to the driver is the fully qualified name for the embedded driver class. In this case, you can use the metadata to determine the capabilities of a particular clsas and JDBC clzss at run time.

EmbeddedDriver” Could not register. If you can’t wait until then, be sure to look at the Derby Developer’s Guide, which is linked to in the Apachf topics section of this article.

Java database development with Apache Derby, Part 1

In the next few articles, you’ll learn how to re-create the basic functionality of the ij tool by writing your own Java application. ClientDriver”calling newInstance is never necessary to load the driver unless you are using Java 1. Because these forame, like the connection or any database cursors, can be managed outside the JVM running your database application code, your application must close them explicitly.


Hello, I’m using Derby db in my program. Sign in or register to add and subscribe to comments.

Java Examples – Connect to a Database

I read that for Derby, user name is app and password is not needed. Properties and look at the examples there.

The Java code that you learned how to execute in the previous section is straightforward and is covered in detail in the rest of this article. I’m going through the api.

Together, these pieces provide most of the necessary functionality, as you can see in the complete connection example provided in Listing 7.


Before compiling and executing, you use the ls command to demonstrate that the directory includes only the Java source code explained in this article. No Paul, I’m saying that the jar file derby.

Given the embedded capabilities of the Apache Derby database, however, the line between application and database is blurred, and this separation doesn’t need to be as rigidly enforced.

The SQL code is a database-specific value. Now I know you’re going to say it’s in your classpath and all that, but let me clentdriver point out that class names can’t include quote characters.

On the other hand, you must explicitly check for any SQL warnings, because they aren’t propagated via the standard exception-handling mechanisms. Many database applications avoid this tight coupling between the database application code and the database to simplify the management and maintenance of the application and database. If running cclientdriver the IDE: This application includes the error-handling functions discussed in Listing 4.


Can not find driver? To access the appropriate metadata, you first create a new DatabaseMetaData object from the current JDBC Connectionas shown in the previous example.

class not found exception Driver – Stack Overflow

Email Required, but never shown. The first step is to learn how to view the information provided to your application about the error encountered by the database, as shown in Listing 4. In this example, you extract the name and product version number for the database you’re accessing, the JDBC driver defby and version number you’re using to access the database, and the full JDBC URL that identifies the database to which you’ve established a connection.

I’m downloading the derby setup again. The only major difficulty in dealing with SQL exceptions is the proper apqche of database resources, such as the database connection.

Sign up using Facebook. Is that the exact error message? Given space limitations, this article can’t fully explore the different ways of establishing a database connection with JDBC. Although it may not have been obvious fornaem the time, you were using a Java application that used the JDBC application programming interface API to connect to and interact with an embedded Apache Derby database.
