May I know what is the difference betweet execute() and executeUpdate().
As far as I know executeUpdate() dont support select statements. execute() supporots all.
If any, please let me know.

Another main difference in these execute() methods is about returning the value by execute these methods.
execute() It returns boolean value
executeQuery() it returns resultset
executeUpdate() It returns integer

Generally speaking you almost always use executeUpdate or executeQuery since execute() by itself does not give you much information. I'd recommend consulting the APIs for more details.
