I have a table called alpha

I have a store procedure on it alphaADD

EXEC alphaADD 'abc123','1','5'

How do I execute this procedure from a java code that takes three values in text boxes and passes them as an argument

Hi anshuma,

you need a CallableStatement to call a stored procedure. Take a look here for sample code and instruction how to do it: http://www.onjava.com/pub/a/onjava/2003/08/13/stored_procedures.html

Exception ex = null
Connection dbCon;

try {
    dbCon = // your connection code

    CallableStatement stmt = dbCon.prepareCall("EXEC alphaADD ?, ?, ?");

    int paramIndex = 0;
    stmt.setString(++paramIndex, //textbox1 value);
    stmt.setString(++paramIndex, //textbox2 value);
    stmt.setString(++paramIndex, //textbox3 value);

} catch (SQLException sqlE) {
    ex := sqlE;
} finally {
    // guarantee you close the connection
    if (ex != null) {
        // process exception or rethrow it.
