Hai All,

I need an advice in JDBC coding !!

In my project i need to write a servlet which parses an XML,
retrieves values of XML and invokes stored procedures using those values.

My servlet uses a Parserclass method
Map parsexml(string str) to parse the data. This method parses the data and return the parsed values as a HashMap.

My problem is ... i am not sure where to include my JDBC code to execute the stored procedures.

1) Should i write the jdbc logic in a method of the parserclass itself
[or]
2) should i write one more class which takes care of jdbc stuff
[or]
3)should i include the jdbc code in servlet.

I am using weblogicServer8.1 for the application and jdbc connection pool inorder to get the connection object.
I think if i have to use some other class to handle jdbc stuff, i should be passing this connection object to other class

methods.

I would like to know whether my approach is correct or not.
What would be the best approach in my cenario.
I am not able to properly judge as i am new to this.

Any help is appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
Pooja.

Pooja,
I would go with option 2. It keeps the JDBC as separate as possible. Why would you need to pass the class a connection, rather than have the JDBC class get the connection itself?

Hai Jeanne Boyarsky

You are rite, there is no need to pass connection object as well.
I will obtain it in the JDBC class.

Thanks for ur advice.
I appreciate ur help
