Prepared Statement is used to execute SQL query whereas Callbale Statement is used to execute Stored Procedures.

That's right, and a stored procedure is , as written in the MySQL manual:
A stored procedure is a set of SQL commands that can be compiled and stored in the server. Once this has been done, clients don't need to keep re-issuing the entire query but can refer to the stored procedure. This provides better performance because the query has to be parsed only once, and less information needs to be sent between the server and the client. You can also raise the conceptual level by having libraries of functions in the server.

Hi all!

What if I use Callable statements to execute SQL query, is it okay?
Is prepared statement better than callable statements to execute SQL query?

Thanks for the info..

Hi Angela,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Can you create a new thread. This one is from 2002.
Please also do a search in the JDBC forum. We have had several posts on the same subject this week.

Regards, Jan
