Working with Spring Boot Named Parameter JdbcTemplate

author-image  By Dhiraj, 04 February, 2017   9K

This is yet another post of using namedparameterjdbctemplate to fetch records from DB.In this post we will see how we can perform different crud operations using namedparameterjdbctemplate. We will be creating dao methods respnosible for insert and fetch data from DB using spring jdbc provided namedparameterjdbctemplate.We will be using the artifact spring-boot-starter-jdbc provided by spring boot to configure our spring jdbc configurations.

Environment Setup

1. JDK 8 2. Spring Boot 3. Intellij Idea/ eclipse 4. Maven

Maven Dependencies

spring-boot-starter-parent: provides useful Maven defaults. It also provides a dependency-management section so that you can omit version tags for existing dependencies.

spring-boot-starter-jdbc: provides all the maven dependecies for using JDBC with the Tomcat JDBC connection pool.



Spring Bean Configuration
package com.devglan.config;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

@SpringBootApplication(scanBasePackages = "com.devglan")
public class Application {

    public static void main(String[] args) {, args);

Following is the model class with getters and setters.
package com.devglan.model;

public class User {

    private int id;
    private String name;
    private String address;
    private String email;
    public int getId() {
	return id;

    public void setId(int id) { = id;

    public String getName() {
        return name;

    public void setName(String name) { = name;

    public String getAddress() {
        return address;

    public void setAddress(String address) {
        this.address = address;

    public String getEmail() {
        return email;

    public void setEmail(String email) { = email;


Now let us define our properties class which will be considered by spring-boot automatically to create the bean for datasource at run time.


Now let us define our Dao class which will have implementation of namedparameterjdbctemplate to insert rows in the db.We are using KeyHolder to hold the auto generated primary key.

package com.devglan.dao.impl;

import java.sql.ResultSet;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.jdbc.core.RowMapper;
import org.springframework.jdbc.core.namedparam.MapSqlParameterSource;
import org.springframework.jdbc.core.namedparam.NamedParameterJdbcTemplate;
import org.springframework.jdbc.core.namedparam.SqlParameterSource;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Repository;

import com.devglan.dao.UserDao;
import com.devglan.model.User;

public class UserDaoImpl implements UserDao {

	private final String INSERT_SQL = "INSERT INTO USERS(name, address, email)  values(:name,:address,:email)";
	private final String FETCH_SQL = "select record_id, name, address, email from users";
	private final String FETCH_SQL_BY_ID = "select * from users where record_id = :id";

	private NamedParameterJdbcTemplate namedParameterJdbcTemplate;
	public User create(final User user) {
		KeyHolder holder = new GeneratedKeyHolder();
			SqlParameterSource parameters = new MapSqlParameterSource()
					.addValue("name", user.getName())
					.addValue("address", user.getAddress())
					.addValue("email", user.getEmail());
			namedParameterJdbcTemplate.update(INSERT_SQL, parameters, holder);
			return user;
	public List findAll() {
		return namedParameterJdbcTemplate.query(FETCH_SQL, new UserMapper());

	public User findUserById(int id) {
		Map parameters = new HashMap();
		parameters.put("id", id);
		return namedParameterJdbcTemplate.queryForObject(FETCH_SQL_BY_ID, parameters, new UserMapper());


class UserMapper implements RowMapper {

	public User mapRow(ResultSet rs, int rowNum) throws SQLException {
		User user = new User();
		return user;


Now, it is time to define our test cases to test whether the insert record in database with spring boot namedParameterJdbcTemplate.
package com.devglan.dao.test;

import static org.junit.Assert.assertEquals;
import static org.junit.Assert.assertNotNull;
import static org.junit.Assert.assertTrue;

import java.util.List;

import org.junit.Test;
import org.junit.runner.RunWith;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.boot.test.SpringApplicationConfiguration;
import org.springframework.test.context.junit4.SpringJUnit4ClassRunner;

import com.devglan.config.Application;
import com.devglan.dao.UserDao;
import com.devglan.model.User;

public class UserDaoTest {

	private UserDao userDao;

	public void createUser() {
		User savedUser = userDao.create(getUser());
		User userFromDb = userDao.findUserById(savedUser.getId());
		assertEquals(savedUser.getName(), userFromDb.getName());
		assertEquals(savedUser.getEmail(), userFromDb.getEmail());

	public void findAllUsers() {
		List users = userDao.findAll();
		assertTrue(users.size() > 0);

	public void findUserById() {
		User user = userDao.findUserById(1);
	private User getUser() {
		User user = new User();
		user.setAddress("Bangalore, Karnataka");
		user.setName("John Doe");
		return user;



CREATE TABLE users (record_id bigint NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, name varchar(100), address varchar(250), email varchar(100), PRIMARY KEY (record_id));

Run Application

Run the test case defined as Junit test case and check the result.You can also verify that a single user row is created in db.
