I'm relatively new to Java - even newer to Spring - and I've to use getJdbcTemplate.queryForList to access a database.
It's not complicated code: List returnedSQL = this.getJdbcTemplate().queryForList(sqlQuery);
My problem is that I'm working on a project that requires I use this method and I don't have time to read a spring book. Is there any sites/books/sources that will tell me the minimum I need to get the method to work, as at the moment I'm using trial and error which is hardly efficient - and getting nothing returned.
Please suggest anything other than the api! The APIs seems to be written in a language I just can't fathom. Plus for the jdbcTemplate it's not very clear. The api only tells you about the specific method/class and doesn't take a more holistic/tutorial oriented approach on how to use it - not very helpful for a beginner (which is strange as I assumed the API was for people who don't know that stuff already...)
Any help/patience is appreciated!
P.S The sqlQuery string is a static String and works when used directly on the DB, but not when using queryForList.
