This section provides a walk-through of writing data access code to OData in JDBC.
Connecting from Code
See Establishing a Connection for the prerequisite information you need to deploy the driver and configure the connection to OData. Connecting from Code shows how to connect with the DriverManager or ODataDataSource classes.
Use the Statement and PreparedStatement classes to execute SQL to OData:
- See Executing Statements to execute Statements and iterate over the returned ResultSets.
- See Using Prepared Statements to execute parameterized statements. The PreparedStatement class provides a means to efficiently execute queries more than once and to mitigate SQL injection attacks.
See Batch Processing to take advantage of the OData bulk processing functionality. The driver converts the JDBC batch commands into a single request to OData.
Defining Custom Views
The driver allows you to define virtual tables whose contents are decided by a pre-configured query. See Defining Custom Views for an overview of creating and configuring custom views.
Executing Stored Procedures
You can execute stored procedures as parameterized statements (with the CallableStatement class) or SQL statements (with the EXECUTE syntax): see Calling Stored Procedures.
Instantiate pooled connections with ODataDataSource objects: see Connection Pooling to create and configure the pool.
