Copy Table in a MySQL Database

     

In this section, you will learn to copy one table to another in a same MySQL database.

Description of Code:

This program helps you in copying one table to another in a same MySQL database. To copy any table,  firstly, you need to establish the connection with MySQL database (jdbc4). This database has both the tables (Copyemployee and employee table). That is the one which is to be copied to the other table and the second is the table to be copied. For copying a table, we have applied the ?INSERT INTO Copyemployee SELECT * FROM employee? SQL statement. Whenever a table is copied, it displays ?Numbers of row(s) affected?. If none of the rows is copied then it shows a message ?Don?t add any row!?.

[Note: Both tables have the same field and its data type.]

Syntax for copy tables:

INSERT INTO <new_table_name> SELECT * FROM <old_table_name>

Here is code of program:

import java.sql.*;

public class CopyOneTableToAnother{
  public static void main(String[] args) {
  System.out.println("Copy data from one table 
  to another in a database!"
);
  Connection conn = null;
  String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/";
  String dbName = "jdbc4";
  String driver = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
  String userName = "root"
  String password = "root";
  try {
  //Load jdbc driver
  Class.forName(driver).newInstance();
  //Establish the connection
  conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url+dbName,userName,password);
  Statement st = conn.createStatement();
  //Copy table
  int rows = st.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO Copyemployee 
   SELECT * FROM employee"
);
  if (rows == 0){
  System.out.println("Don't add any row!");
  }
  else{
  System.out.println(rows + " row(s)affected.");
  conn.close();
  }
  }
  catch (Exception e) {
  e.printStackTrace();
  }
  }
}
