Creating a JDBC Starter Project

Learn about creating a JDBC starter project, connect to the H2 database, create a table, and add data to the table.

Spring JDBC makes talking to databases easy by eliminating the need for establishing a connection, handling expectations, and closing connections. Spring provides a template class called JdbcTemplate to interact with databases which offers a wide array of methods to perform storage and retrieval of data. The JdbcTemplate class hides all the boilerplate code for connection management and error handling whereby the developer can focus on the SQL query.

Using the Spring JdbcTemplate, a Java application can store and retrieve objects of a class to a table in the database.
