How to Delete an Oracle table using Java?

Thank you in advance.
How do I delete a table inOracle 9i using Java code?
Do I have to append data and use a result set? Or do I have to use prepared statments. If so what statements are necessary to perform a java/Oracle Delete of a table?

try {
        // Create a statement
        Statement stmt = connection.createStatement();
        // Drop table object1_table and types object1 and object2
        stmt.execute("DROP TABLE object1_table");
        } catch (SQLException e) {
        // A drop statement will throw an exception if the table or type does not exist
