here is the main method

public class App {

	@SuppressWarnings({ "rawtypes", "unchecked" })
	public static void main(String[] args) {
			ConfigurableApplicationContext context = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("applicationContext.xml");
	        JDBCEmployeeDAO jdbcEmployeeDAO = (JDBCEmployeeDAO) context.getBean("jdbcEmployeeDAO");

	        Employee emplNew1 = new Employee(23, "John", 23);
	        Employee emplNew2 = new Employee(223, "Mark", 43);
	        List<Employee> employeesN = new ArrayList();
	        System.out.println(" inserted rows: " + employeesN);

	        System.out.println(" FindAll : " + jdbcEmployeeDAO.findAll());
	        jdbcEmployeeDAO.insertBatch2("UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET NAME ='Mary'");
	        List<Employee> employees = jdbcEmployeeDAO.findAll();

change the other data
What do you mean by that actually? Changing any data other than the id (which i assume is the primary key) is not going to help.

Are you sure your use case is not to update the data?

Why would the user be looking at a console in the first place?

only thing i need is to select  if the id exist in the database... if that id exists, just display the "id exist with the database........ else insert into the database as new id...

let me know a piece of code how to check the validation on the current code base.....

else insert into the database as new id...
is more like it. Why then not just catch that org.springframework.dao.DuplicateKeyException? Having said that, it would be sounder programming just to issue a select on the id alone first
