31.6. Creating and Modifying Database Objects

To create, modify or drop a database object like a table or view you use the execute() method. This method is similar to the method executeQuery(), but it doesn't return a result. Example 31-7 illustrates the usage.

Example 31-7. Dropping a Table in JDBC

Statement st = db.createStatement();
st.execute("DROP TABLE mytable");
st.close();
