The following is a quick code example to give you a taste on how to use the library.
// this uses h2 but you can change it to match your database String databaseUrl = "jdbc:h2:mem:account"; // create a connection source to our database ConnectionSource connectionSource = new JdbcConnectionSource(databaseUrl); // instantiate the DAO to handle Account with String id Dao<Account,String> accountDao = DaoManager.createDao(connectionSource, Account.class); // if you need to create the 'accounts' table make this call TableUtils.createTable(connectionSource, Account.class); // create an instance of Account String name = "Jim Smith"; Account account = new Account(name, "_secret"); // persist the account object to the database accountDao.create(account); // retrieve the account Account account2 = accountDao.queryForId(name); // show its password System.out.println("Account: " + account2.getPassword()); // close the connection source connectionSource.close();
