Deleting row and column from a table 

In this program ,we delete row and column of a table. First we create connection to a database using connection interface and java driver. After it we can delete row using "delete " keyword and also can delete column using "Alter" table commands SQL.

For this example, we are using a database named as "cellular" of mysql--

cellular(Before deletion)--

In this table we will delete,id having minimum value and we will also delete column "name".

import java.sql.*; 


class colerase {
      public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException {

            // declare a connection by using Connection interface 
            Connection connection = null;

           

            String connectionURL = "jdbc:mysql://192.168.10.13:3306/ankdb";

            //declare a resultSet 
            ResultSet rs = null;

            // Declare statement.
            Statement statement = null;

            try {

                // Load JDBC driver "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver". 
                Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver").newInstance();

                
                connection = DriverManager.getConnection(connectionURL,
                "root", "root");

                
                statement = connection.createStatement();

               

    /* sql query find the element from the table havinf minimum ID */
    rs = statement.executeQuery("select min(id) from cellular");
    rs.next();
        

    // This sql query delete the row having minimum ID.
 statement.executeUpdate("delete from cellular where id='"+rs.getInt(1)+"'");  
 System.out.println("Row is deleted successfully.");

         

                // This sql query delete the column name of specified name.
 statement.executeUpdate("ALTER TABLE cellular DROP name");
 System.out.println("column 'Address' is deleted successfully.");

               
     }
     // catch exceptions if found any exception at run time.
     catch(Exception ex){
              System.out.println("Sorry ! found some problems with database.");
        System.out.println("Error is : "+ ex);
          }

           finally {
                // close all the connections.
                rs.close();
                statement.close();
                connection.close();
          }
      }
}
