I have set of 43 rows which should be inserted to mysql
How could I insert them all simultaneously into DB using preparedStatement?
I know that looping could be one solution or are there any better ways to do this?

Like

SQL_Query = "INSERT INTO options VALUES('','number1');
editStatement = connection.prepareStatement(SQL_Query);
editStatement.executeUpdate();

SQL_Query = "INSERT INTO options VALUES('','number2');
editStatement = connection.prepareStatement(SQL_Query);
editStatement.executeUpdate();

And a PreparedStatement...

PreparedStatement ps = connection.prepareStatement( "INSERT INTO options VALUES( ?, ? )" ) ;
for( int i = 0 ; i < 100 ; i++ )
{
    ps.setString( 1, "" ) ;
    ps.setString( 2, "number" + i ) ;
    ps.addBatch() ;
}
ps.executeBatch() ;

Obviously,

for( int i = 0 ; i < 100 ; i++ )

should be:

for( int i = 0 ; i < 43 ; i++ )

and

    ps.setString( 2, "number" + i ) ;

should be

    ps.setString( 2, "number" + ( i + 1 ) ) ;

to accuratley fit your example ;-)

Actually I made that example way too easy what comparing what the real situation is.

I have 43 rows, which each having different text&numbers so each row is unique. I my point of view this changes the code quite dramatically.

True example:
INSERT INTO css VALUES ('','A:link','link color','color','black','2','');
INSERT INTO css VALUES ('','A:link','link size','font-size','10','2','pt');
INSERT INTO css VALUES ('','table.image','','height','14','2','pt');
etc..

I raised points to 200

Do this then:

PreparedStatement ps = connection.prepareStatement( "INSERT INTO css VALUES( ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? )" ) ;
ps.setString( 1, "" ) ;
ps.setString( 2, "A:link" ) ;
ps.setString( 3, "link color" ) ;
ps.setString( 4, "color" ) ;
ps.setString( 5, "black" ) ;
ps.setString( 6, "2" ) ;
ps.setString( 7, "" ) ;
ps.addBatch() ;

ps.setString( 1, "" ) ;
ps.setString( 2, "A:link" ) ;
ps.setString( 3, "link size" ) ;
ps.setString( 4, "font-size" ) ;
ps.setString( 5, "10" ) ;
ps.setString( 6, "2" ) ;
ps.setString( 7, "" ) ;
ps.addBatch() ;

... all the rest ...

ps.executeBatch() ;

Or, you could pass them through as a double array of strings;

public void addStuff( String[][] values )
{
    PreparedStatement ps = connection.prepareStatement( "INSERT INTO css VALUES( ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? )" ) ;
    for( int i = 0 ; i < values.length ; i++ )
    {
        for( int j = 0 ; j < values[ i ].length ; j++ )
        {
            ps.setString( j + 1, values[ i ][ j ] ) ;
        }
        ps.addBatch() ;
    }
    ps.executeBatch() ;
}

and call it with:

String[][] values = { { "", "A:link", "link color", "color", "black", "2", "" },
                               { "", "A:link", "link size", "font-size", "10", "2", "pt" },
                               { "", "table.image", "", "height", "14", "2", "pt" } } ;
addStuff( values ) ;

Got it work now.

Solution was to use batch and create table to db from which I fetch rows to batch new insert :)

      Connection MM_connection2 = DriverManager.getConnection MM_editConnection,MM_editUserName,MM_editPassword);
      PreparedStatement ps = MM_connection2.prepareStatement( "INSERT INTO css VALUES( ?,?,?,?,?,?,? )" ) ;
   
      Connection MM_connection3 = DriverManager.getConnection(MM_editConnection,MM_editUserName,MM_editPassword);
      PreparedStatement editStatement = MM_connection3.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM css WHERE service_id='0'");
      ResultSet rs3 = editStatement.executeQuery();
      while (rs3.next()) {
            ps.setString( 1,"" );
            ps.setString( 2,""+rs3.getString("name"));
            ps.setString( 3,""+rs3.getString("desc"));
            ps.setString( 4,""+rs3.getString("property"));
            ps.setString( 5,""+rs3.getString("value"));
            ps.setString( 6,""+result);
            ps.setString( 7,""+rs3.getString("type"));
            ps.addBatch();
      }

      ps.executeBatch();
