How to use Callable Statement in Java to call Stored Procedure? JDBC Example

The CallableStatement of JDBC API is used to call a stored procedure from Java Program. Calling a stored procedure follows the same pattern as creating PreparedStatment and than executing it. You first need to create a database connection by supplying all the relevant details e.g. database URL, which comprise JDBC protocol and hostname, username, and password. Make sure your JDBC URL is acceptable by JDBC driver you are using to connect to the database. Every database vendor uses different JDBC URL and they have different driver JAR which must be in your classpath before you can run the stored procedure from Java Program.

How to convert int array to ArrayList of Integer in Java 8? [Example/Tutorial]

I once asked this question to one of the Java developers during an Interview and like many others, he answered that Arrays.asList() can convert an array of primitive integer values to ArrayList<Integer> in Java, which was actually wrong. Even though, Arrays.asList() is the go-to method to convert an Array to ArrayList in Java when it comes to converting a primitive array to ArrayList, this method is not useful. The Arrays.asList() method does not deal with boxing and it will just create a List<int[]> which is not what you want. In fact, there was no shortcut to convert an int[] to ArrayList<Integer> or long[] to ArrayList<Long> till Java 8.

Java 8 Optional Example - isPresent(), OrElse() and get()

The Optional class in Java is one of many goodies we have got from the Java 8 release. If you use correctly, Optional can result in clean code and can also help you to avoid NullPointerException which has bothered Java developer from its inception. Even though many of us have used null to indicate the absence of something, the big problem is that if you call a method or access a field on the null object (except static fields), you will get a NullPointerException and your whole program may crash. 

7 Examples of HttpURLConnection in Java - Sending GET and POST Request

The HttpURLConnection is an important class in java.net package which allows you to send an HTTP request from Java program. By using this you can send any kind of HTTP request e.g. GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, HEAD etc. It also provides several methods to configure your HTTP requests e.g. it allows you to add headers, add request parameters, attaching cookie, configuring timeout, handling redirects and so on. A good knowledge of this class is important for Java developers working on both core Java and Java web application.
