7.4 Using Prepared Statements

If you are not familiar with Prepared Statements in MySQL, take a look at the source code comments and explanations in the file examples/prepared_statement.cpp.

sql::PreparedStatement is created by passing an SQL query to sql::Connection::prepareStatement(). As sql::PreparedStatement is derived from sql::Statement, you will feel familiar with the API once you have learned how to use (simple) statements (sql::Statement). For example, the syntax for fetching results is identical.

// ...
sql::Connection *con;
sql::PreparedStatement  *prep_stmt
// ...

prep_stmt = con->prepareStatement("INSERT INTO test(id, label) VALUES (?, ?)");

prep_stmt->setInt(1, 1);
prep_stmt->setString(2, "a");

prep_stmt->setInt(1, 2);
prep_stmt->setString(2, "b");

delete prep_stmt;
delete con;

You must free the sql::PreparedStatement and sql::Connection objects explicitly using delete.

Please note, memory might stay allocated to result set pointer despite we delete it and it remains allocated till we delete prep_stmt.
