Connection

implements AutoCloseable Wrapper
java.sql.Connection

Class Overview

A connection represents a link from a Java application to a database. All SQL statements and results are returned within the context of a connection. Database statements that are executed within this context form a database session which forms one or more closed transactions. Especially in distributed applications, multiple concurrent connections may exist accessing the same values of the database. which may lead to the following phenomena (referred to as transaction isolation levels):

  • dirty reads:
    reading values from table rows that are not committed.
  • non-repeatable reads:
    reading table rows more than once in a transaction but getting back different data because other transactions have altered the rows between the reads.
  • phantom reads:
    retrieving additional "phantom" rows in the course of repeated table reads because other transactions have inserted additional rows that satisfy an SQL WHERE clause

Summary

Constants
int TRANSACTION_NONE A constant indicating that transactions are not supported.
int TRANSACTION_READ_COMMITTED No dirty reads are permitted, therefore transactions may not read a row containing uncommitted values - but does not prevent an application from non-repeatable reads and phantom reads.
int TRANSACTION_READ_UNCOMMITTED In the case that reading uncommitted values is allowed, the following incidents may happen which may lead to an invalid results:
  • dirty reads
  • non-repeatable reads
  • phantom reads
int TRANSACTION_REPEATABLE_READ A constant indicating that dirty reads and non-repeatable reads are prevented but phantom reads can occur.
int TRANSACTION_SERIALIZABLE The constant that indicates that the following incidents are all prevented (the opposite of TRANSACTION_READ_UNCOMMITTED):
  • dirty reads
  • non-repeatable reads
  • phantom reads

If sql is an SQL INSERT statement, columnNames is expected to hold the names of each column in the statement's associated database table containing the autogenerated-keys of interest. Otherwise columnNames is ignored.

Subject to JDBC driver support, this operation will attempt to send the precompiled version of the statement to the database. Alternatively, if the driver is not capable of handling precompiled statements, the statement will not reach the database server until it is executed. This will have a bearing on precisely when SQLException instances get raised.

Parameters
sql the SQL statement.
Returns
  • the PreparedStatement containing the supplied SQL statement.
Throws
SQLException if there is a problem accessing the database.

Creates a default PreparedStatement that can retrieve automatically generated keys. Parameter autoGeneratedKeys may be used to tell the driver whether such keys should be made accessible. This is only relevant when the sql statement is an insert statement.

An SQL statement which may have IN parameters can be stored and precompiled in a PreparedStatement. The PreparedStatement can then be then be used to execute the statement multiple times in an efficient way.

Subject to JDBC driver support, this operation will attempt to send the precompiled version of the statement to the database. If the driver does not support precompiled statements, the statement will not reach the database server until it is executed. This distinction determines the moment when SQLExceptions get raised.

By default, ResultSets from the returned object will be TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY type with a CONCUR_READ_ONLY mode of concurrency.

Parameters
sql the SQL statement.
autoGeneratedKeys one of the following generated key options:

If sql is an SQL INSERT statement, the parameter columnIndexes is expected to hold the index values for each column in the statement's intended database table containing the autogenerated-keys of interest. Otherwise columnIndexes is ignored.

Subject to JDBC driver support, this operation will attempt to send the precompiled version of the statement to the database. If the driver does not support precompiled statements, the statement will not reach the database server until it is executed. This distinction determines the moment when SQLExceptions get raised.

By default, ResultSets from the returned object will be TYPE_FORWARD_ONLY type with a CONCUR_READ_ONLY concurrency mode.

Parameters
sql the SQL statement.
columnIndexes the indexes of the columns for which auto-generated keys should be made available.
Returns
  • the PreparedStatement containing the supplied SQL statement.
Throws

public abstract void releaseSavepoint (Savepoint savepoint)

Added in API level 1

Releases the specified savepoint from the present transaction. Once removed, the Savepoint is considered invalid and should not be referenced further.

Parameters
savepoint the object targeted for removal.
Throws
SQLException if there is a problem with accessing the database or if savepoint is considered not valid in this transaction.

public abstract void rollback ()

Added in API level 1

Throws
SQLException if there is a problem with the database or if the method is called while in auto-commit mode of operation.

public abstract void rollback (Savepoint savepoint)

Added in API level 1

Undoes all changes made after the supplied Savepoint object was set. This method should only be used when auto-commit mode is disabled.

Parameters
savepoint the Savepoint to roll back to
Throws
SQLException if there is a problem accessing the database.

public abstract void setAutoCommit (boolean autoCommit)

Added in API level 1

Sets this connection's auto-commit mode on or off.

Putting a Connection into auto-commit mode means that all associated SQL statements are run and committed as separate transactions. By contrast, setting auto-commit to off means that associated SQL statements get grouped into transactions that need to be completed by explicit calls to either the commit() or rollback() methods.

Auto-commit is the default mode for new connection instances.

When in this mode, commits will automatically occur upon successful SQL statement completion or upon successful completion of an execute. Statements are not considered successfully completed until all associated ResultSets and output parameters have been obtained or closed.

Calling this operation during an uncommitted transaction will result in it being committed.

Parameters
autoCommit boolean indication of whether to put the target connection into auto-commit mode (true) or not ( false).
Throws
SQLException if there is a problem accessing the database.

public abstract void setCatalog (String catalog)

Added in API level 1
