How to Delete a Table in MySQL

     

Consider a situation where we need to delete a table from a database. 

To delete a table from the database firstly we need to make a connection with the database. When the connection has been established pass a query for deleting a table inside the prepareStatement() method and it will return the PreparedStatement object. Now call the method executeUpdate() of the  PreparedStatement interface which will helps us to know the status of the program.

The code of the program is given below:

import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.sql.*;

public class ServletDeletingTable extends HttpServlet{
  public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, 
 HttpServletResponse response
throws
 
ServletException, IOException{
  response.setContentType("text/html");
  PrintWriter pw = response.getWriter();
  String connectionURL = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/zulfiqar";
  Connection connection;
  try{
  Class.forName("org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver");
  connection = DriverManager.getConnection
   (connectionURL, 
"root""admin");
  PreparedStatement pst = 
  connection.prepareStatement
("drop table emp_sal");
  int i = pst.executeUpdate();
  if (i==0){
  pw.println("Table has been deleted");
  }
  else{
  pw.println("Table has not been deleted");
  }
  }
  catch(Exception e){
  pw.println("The exception is " + e);
  }
  }
}

| vinod | 12000 |
+----------+--------+
2 rows in set (0.00 sec)
