boolean isPresent=statement.execute("SELECT PERSON FROM ID WHERE "
+ "ID=1"
+ "AND (Address=\'abc\'AND lastName=\'xxxx\')");

Difficult to tell, because I don't know what your columns are. The SQL string looks like well-formed SQL, so you will have to try and see what happens when you execute that query at the command line? Have you read the API for java.sql.Statement#execute()?

It's really close. If you look at the statement as one string you have:

Note the missing space before "and". This means your database can't parse the query.
