Connect To PostgreSQL With JDBC Driver

// siddhu vydyabhushana // 8 comments
Here is an example to show you how to connect to PostgreSQL database with JDBC driver.

1. Download PostgreSQL JDBC Driver

Get a PostgreSQL JDBC driver at this URL : http://jdbc.postgresql.org/download.html

2. Java JDBC connection example

Code snippets to use JDBC to connect a PostgreSQL database
Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver");
Connection connection = null;
connection = DriverManager.getConnection(
   "jdbc:postgresql://hostname:port/dbname","username", "password");
connection.close();
See a complete example below :
File : JDBCExample.java
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.SQLException;
 
public class JDBCExample {
 
 public static void main(String[] argv) {
 
  System.out.println("-------- PostgreSQL "
    + "JDBC Connection Testing ------------");
 
  try {
 
   Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver");
 
  } catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
 
   System.out.println("Where is your PostgreSQL JDBC Driver? "
     + "Include in your library path!");
   e.printStackTrace();
   return;
 
  }
 
  System.out.println("PostgreSQL JDBC Driver Registered!");
 
  Connection connection = null;
 
  try {
 
   connection = DriverManager.getConnection(
     "jdbc:postgresql://127.0.0.1:5432/testdb", "mkyong",
     "123456");
 
  } catch (SQLException e) {
 
   System.out.println("Connection Failed! Check output console");
   e.printStackTrace();
   return;
 
  }
 
  if (connection != null) {
   System.out.println("You made it, take control your database now!");
  } else {
   System.out.println("Failed to make connection!");
  }
 }
 
}

3. Run it

Assume JDBCExample is store in c:\test folder, together with PostgreSQL JDBC driver, then run it :
C:\test>java -cp c:\test\postgresql-8.3-603.jdbc4.jar;c:\test JDBCExample
-------- MySQL JDBC Connection Testing ------------
PostgreSQL JDBC Driver Registered!
You made it, take control your database now!
Done
