Getting a Mysql auto increment value back into my Java client GUI?
posted 8 years ago
I'm busy developing a Java GUI client/server database application with Netbeans IDE 6.0 and Mysql to automate the data management and other tasks for my Dongo website (see http://www.dongo.org to get an idea what is the targeted result of all my programming). I have a question as described below.
To insert a country in my mysql country table I use the code below which is working fine:
The first column sid of the country table (as for all my tables) is auto increment:
| sid | bigint(20) unsigned | NO | PRI | NULL | auto_increment |
I would like to get the value assigned to sid by Mysql back into my client Java application preferably with the one sql statement I'm already using to insert. Only if really necessary with a second sql statement. What is the best way to programm this?
