Change and delete rows in a sql-database

Note, some of the code could be hard to understand as a bit is in Swedish.


I am trying to learn some sql/java. I created some tables in an sql-database, and a java-program to access and modify the tables. I am not that experienced in programming so I might have made some mistakes and I don't always know all the terminology. Anyway, here goes.

I made a GUI where you can switch from different tables using a scrollpane. I also have buttons and textfields for navigation and user input. I manged to find out how to change from different tables and how to add rows of data. I also ahve classes to run the program and classes to access to the database, and some methods in them,

This is how i show the table called Movies:

This is how I add rows to tables:

It seems a bit more complicated to delete rows and to change data in them. Mainly I am not sure how I should make the program understand which row that I want to change or delete. If it is possible to select a row in the scrollpane or somehow search in an array after the movie or staff that I want to change, I make the input using Textforms.

Any help would be great.

Since this is more SQL related than Swing related, I'm moving this to JDBC.

Welcome to JavaRanch

What happens when you try to delete a row from the command line? What SQL instructions do you use?
I agree. Here's the link:
