Return Value from Stored Procedure

I have a stored procedure with an out parameter so I think it should return a value (correct me if I am wrong). I am calling the stored procedure in my java program.
How do I get the value to my java program. I want to use the returned value in another operation.

You need to do the following.

Assume stmt is the CallableStatement object that is returned from prepareCall() and all input has been set.

stmt.registerOutParameter(<the position of the output parameter>, java.sql.Types.<whatever type it is>);

Then, after execution:

String value = stmt.getString(<the position of the output parameter>);

or whatever type it is, i.e. stmt.getInt(), etc.

Hope that helps.
I agree. Here's the link:
