JDBC Driver for Google Sheets

Build 20.0.7587

Using JDBC

This section provides a walk-through of writing data access code to Google Spreadsheets in JDBC.

See Using Spreadsheets as Tables for more information on the available API objects and how to query them with SQL. See SQL Compliance for the SQL syntax.

Connecting from Code

See Establishing a Connection for the prerequisite information you need to deploy the driver and configure the connection to Google Spreadsheets. Connecting from Code shows how to connect with the DriverManager or GoogleSheetsDataSource classes.

Executing SQL

Use the Statement and PreparedStatement classes to execute SQL to Google Spreadsheets:

  • 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 Google Spreadsheets bulk processing functionality. The driver converts the JDBC batch commands into a single request to Google Spreadsheets.

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.

Connection Pooling

Instantiate pooled connections with GoogleSheetsDataSource objects: see Connection Pooling to create and configure the pool.
