sping jdbctemplate for deleting?

Posted on 2014-03-31
Last Modified: 2014-04-02

I am using the Spring jdbctemplate for my DAO.
I have to delete records from table and this paritcular table has reference integrity on other two tables.
So I have to delete records from other tables before I can delete.

Can I do this in one scoop or do I need three different jdbctemplateS?
Any suggestion?

Delete from Catalog_Price Where cat=?
Delete from Catalog_factory where cat=?
Delete from Catalog where cat=?

Also I have to pass the parameter.

public void delete(String cat) {
    JdbcTemplate delete = new JdbcTemplate(dataSource);
    delete.update("Delete from Catalog_Price Where cat=?",
        new Object[] { cat });
 delete.update("Delete from Catalog_factory Where cat=?",
        new Object[] { cat });
 delete.update("Delete from Catalog Where cat=?",
        new Object[] { cat });

Another approach is to do the batchUpdate

JdbcTemplate delete = new JdbcTemplate(dataSource);
String[] sqls = new String[]{"Delete from Catalog_Price Where catalog_id=1","Delete from Catalog_factory Where catalog_id=1","Delete from Catalog Where catalog_id=1"};

Another possibility, just to put it out there, is that most databases can have the referential integrity setup so that the database cascades the delete to the other tables for you. If this is something that you may be interested in implementing, let us know what DB you are using and we can help set it up.

The cascade delete will work only if while creating referential integrity itself we have to say delete will cascade.
