Java update sql Parameter index out of range

I have problem with update sql command in java, i am using jdbc to connect to mysql database. When i want do this:

db.CreatePreparedStatement("UPDATE kontakty SET Telefon = ?,Mobil = ?,Email = ? WHERE `idKontakty` = ?");
db.SetInt(1, Integer.parseInt(jTextFieldTelefon.getText()));
db.SetInt(2, Integer.parseInt(jTextFieldMobil.getText()));
db.SetString(3, jTextFieldEmail.getText());
db.SetInt(4, 1);

It shows this error.

Answer Source

You don't using the correct PrepapredStatement you are using another API.



  1. there are a method prepareStatement and not CreatePreparedStatement
  2. there are setInt with lower s and not SetInt with upper S

Fot this i assume you are using another thing and not the correct PrepapredStatement

So to solve your problem you can use :

Connection db = DriverManager.getConnection(DB_URL, DB_username, DB_password);

PreparedStatement ps = db.prepareStatement("UPDATE kontakty SET Telefon = ?, Mobil = ?, Email = ? WHERE `idKontakty` = ?");

ps.setInt(1, Integer.parseInt(jTextFieldTelefon.getText()));
ps.setInt(2, Integer.parseInt(jTextFieldMobil.getText()));
ps.setString(3, jTextFieldEmail.getText());
ps.setInt(4, 1);


How to explain this, your design is a little complicated, ok

When you call public PreparedStatement CreatePreparedStatement(String query) you pass your query in it, so it create a prepapred statement with this query and retun it which mean you have to put it in another variable PreparedStatement like this :

PreparedStatement pst = db.CreatePreparedStatement(
        "UPDATE kontakty SET Telefon = ?, Mobil = ?, Email = ? WHERE `idKontakty` = ?");

Then you call the setters (there are a spcific syntax of setters and getters, one of them should not start with upper letter), which set the parameters in the static Prepared Statement :

private static PreparedStatement preparedStatement;

In this case you can get NullPointException because the PreparedStatement is null, in your case you don't because you already call CreatePreparedStatement.
So you note that you don't set the attribute in the correct statement for that you get this error, instead you have to use it like this :

PreparedStatement pst = db.CreatePreparedStatement(
            "UPDATE kontakty SET Telefon = ?, Mobil = ?, Email = ? WHERE `idKontakty` = ?");

pst.setInt(1, Integer.parseInt(jTextFieldTelefon.getText()));
pst.setInt(2, Integer.parseInt(jTextFieldMobil.getText()));
pst.setString(3, jTextFieldEmail.getText());
pst.setInt(4, 1);

No need to call SetInt(..), ...

Hope you get your problem.


please do not use upper letters in the first letter of your methods, this not good practice.
