Auto Increment Identity Column in Various Databases

We can define columns in databases which will auto increment its values whenever we add a new row. Different databases have different ways to do so and even call them differently like auto increment, identity column etc. We will discuss the auto increment for some databases here. Please feel free to add other database details that you know through the comments.


Auto Increment in MySQL

 The AUTO_INCREMENT attribute can be used to generate a unique identity for new rows:

JDBC Drivers and Connection Strings

Here we will list down the sample connection urls used in the jdbc examples at

Oracle Database 11g JDBC Drivers and Connection String


Driver Download Url

Driver names include ojdbc5.jar for java 5,  ojdbc6.jar for java 6 etc.

MySQL Stored Procedure and Stored Function Examples

Here we discuss examples for different cases of usage for stored procedures and stored functions. Please refer to the note on ‘Stored Procedures and Stored Functions in MySQL’ for more theory, details and explanations.

Stored Procedures and Stored Functions in MySQL

A stored routine allow users to define a set of statements that they can later call together. Stored procedures and stored functions are the two types of stored routines in MySQL. A stored procedure takes in zero or more input parameters and runs specified SQL statements. A stored function takes in zero or more parameters, runs specified SQL, and returns exactly one scalar value.
